We are still here!

This has been another week of great learning but some how Ms Lirenman never took any pictures.  We had a wonderful Mystery Number Skype with a class in Richmond Virginia.  Their class was made up of all boys. They had the same number of boys as us except we have nine girls too.  We thought about what it would be like to be in a class with no girls. The boys liked it, the girls didn't.  Ms. Lirenman loves having boys and girls in her class.

We also have been working with the iPad app Explain Everything and our iPad cameras.  We have been taking photos of things up real close, and the same item from far away. We are putting these photos into Explain Everything as we try to create out own versions of Looking Closely Through The Classroom, inspired by Frank Serafini's Looking Closely books.

Some of us played a bit with our class green screen and Ms. Lirenman's new green screen technology app on her iPad.  Stay tuned as soon enough we will independently be making our own movies using green screen technology.

Have a wonderful weekend everyone and don't forget on Monday we're off on an adventure.

  1. Hi Division 19,
    We've started to do Guess My Number in the classroom and as soon as we've had some more practice we would love to Skype with you.
    Where is your adventure on Monday? I'm interested to find out.

  2. Yes, we want to play Guess My Number with you too. Just let Ms. Lirenman know when you're ready and she will help get it set up for us.

    On Monday we went to Guildford Mall. We went to the Apple Store there. We learned about Garage Band. You should take your class too. It was a lot of fun.
