Ms. Hoyt’s Kindergarteners have been learning to describe characters in stories. In the Technology Lab we watched the audio book, Spookley the Square Pumpkin, by visiting this Symbaloo webmix.

Finally, students worked in groups using the Draw & Tell app to draw Spookley and copy a describing word to label their picture. Enjoy their work!
