Mrs. Benson’s Class is AWESOME

Mrs. Benson’s first graders discussed how everyone is AWESOME at something. We watched this video by Kid President to be inspired:

In this video, Kid President is introducing a guide to being awesome.  Here is our digital version of how we ARE awesome. Enjoy their work!

***To complete this project students first drew their pictures with the Paint Go tool by abcya.com.  Next we compiled their pictures using the 30 Hands app and recorded their voices.

Inventors

Recently, we learned about some famous Inventors via this Symbaloo webmix.

Students used a recording sheet to take notes with a partner.  (In the interest of time, students were given a cloze recording sheet.)  Next, we played a Kahoot game with partners, using their notes to aid in answering questions.  To view the Kahoot game we played, click here.

Rocks!

This week in the Technology Lab students learned about rocks via this Symbaloo webmix.

Some students choose to Tweet about what they learned about rocks.

Skyping with Santa

White Oak Primary students had fun this morning Skyping with Santa!  Santa was very kind to take time out of his busy schedule to answer all our questions.  Thank you Santa Claus!  Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas!

Mrs. Benson’s class made Christmas cards using this card maker from abcya.com.  Before making them, we discussed how our military serves our country every day of the year, even on holidays.  Students were asked to keep our service men and women in mind as they created their cards. These cards have been printed out and sent to a group of our military men and women serving overseas.  Enjoy their work below!

Merry Christmas to our service men and women!  Thank you for your dedication to our country!
