First Grade Celebrates the New Year with Shanté Keys

Posted in augmented reality, first grade, holiday, and picture book lesson

First grade celebrated the new year in the Jackson Library with Gail Piernas-Davenport’s Shanté Keys and the New Year’s Peas. During the story, the kids matched the food eaten on New Year’s Day to the flag of the corresponding country in the story. We like how the people from whom Shanté asked to borrow peas were invited to dinner at the end. At the tables, the kids decorated their own fireworks and used the Quivervision app to pop virtual fireworks. Welcome, 2019!

Kindergarten Uses AR to Manipulate a Fire Truck

Posted in augmented reality, kindergarten, and nonfiction lesson

Last week in the Jackson Library, kindergarten used an augmented reality app, Quiver, to manipulate a virtual fire truck.  After reading Camiones de Bomberos/Fire Trucks, we labeled parts of the fire truck and discussed the functions of each. Then at the tables, the kids used Quiver to see their fire truck page in 3D and to spray the hose, raise the ladder, drive the truck, and sound the siren. During check out, we listened to Mr. 7 Yea!’s firefighter story and songs about what to do if there is a fire.

Toontastic and Narrative Nonfiction with 3rd

Posted in augmented reality, reading skills, technology, and third grade

Before the book fair, third graders explored Google’s Toontastic app to retell the story Oh No Astro! from the asteroid’s point of view.  We used context clues when we read this story to determine the meaning of: rambunctious, loitering, humiliated, clarity, and confrontation. After the kids created their videos, they used NASA’s augmented reality app to look at spacecraft models in 3D!

Boo! Haiku

Posted in augmented reality, fourth grade, holiday, poetry, and writing

Fourth graders came to the library to write fun, spooky poems full of imagery. After reading Caswell and Shea’s Boo! Haiku book, the kids created their own spooky-themed poems. They had to choose a topic and then had to describe it well enough so someone could guess the topic. I made a fun interactive bulletin board of these so the kids in the school could guess the topics. What great writers we have at Jackson!
