We made penguins out of plasticine. First we watched a video made by Barbara Reid which taught us how to manipulate the plasticine to make a background. Then her second video showed us how to make a plasticine animal. We then looked at penguin pictures on the SmartBoard and practiced drawing our penguins. Then we walked downstairs to the display cabinet to see Division 9's penguins. After we had figured out what our penguins would like we started creating our backgrounds. Plasticine can be difficult to manipulate but we worked hard and created wonderful penguins.

One of our favourite Word Work Activities is building words on our new light table. We created our own game and then taught Ms. Leech our game. We need 3 people to play the game. Two of us spell words while the third person writes the words that we spell down on a white board. At the end of game all three people get a sticker. Do you ever use a light table to practise spelling words?
We love writing! We love to choose where we write and what we write about. Some of us like to write about Angry Birds, Star Wars, Skylanders,Canucks, My Little Pony, Lego and our favourite animals. We love to create our own books. What do you like to write about?

Today we started learning about penguins. We started with what we wondered about penguins. We shared our wonders on TodaysMeet. Ms. Leech created a QR code so that we could get onto TodaysMeet easily. While some of us were sharing our ideas on TodaysMeet some of us decided to write about what we already know about penguins. We used paper and pencil to write our ideas down. Tomorrow we will share what we know about penguins on a padlet.

We were so excited today because we got new headphones that have a microphone. We couldn't wait to plug the headphones into our iPads and record our voices. It is so much easier now to record our voices using our new headphones. Do you use headphones with your iPads?
