Spookley the Square Pumpkin by Mrs. Wingo’s Class

Mrs. Wingo’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. Next, we discussed words that would describe Spookley and worked together to spell them.  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!

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.

Tacky the Penguin

Mrs. Wingo’s Kindergarteners listened to the book Tacky the Penguin by Helen Lester online by visiting this Symbaloo webmix. Next they played an interactive game called Kahoot that allows teachers to create online, interactive games about whatever topic they would like.

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. Wingo’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!
