Studying the Impact of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

Posted in character education, fifth grade, holiday, picture book lesson, Seesaw, and Social Studies

Last week in the Jackson Library, fifth graders listened to the read aloud, Martin’s Big Words, and we discussed the impact those words had on America. Then they used Kally Miller’s Seesaw activity and the dates in the back of the book to sequence the major events in Dr. King’s life on a timeline. Finally, they wrote their own ‘I Have a Dream’ excerpts to convey ways they want the world to improve.

Turkey Letter Proofreading

Posted in fourth grade, holiday, technology, and writing

Last week in the Jackson Library, fourth graders proofread a letter from a turkey. They worked in pairs on a Seesaw template I created to find the errors. I threw in a few extra ‘mistakes’ to make sure they were thinking! It was a fun activity and helped me gauge which skills need more reinforcing in the future.
