Martin’s Big Words 2021

Posted in apps, augmented reality, character education, fifth grade, fourth grade, holiday, technology, and third grade

Last week in the Jackson Library, I read excerpts of the Martin’s Big Words book to third and fourth graders. We discussed the power of his peaceful, persuasive words and how Martin’s use of words caused laws to change to promote equal rights in America. They used the augmented reality app, WeirdType to use some of Martin’s words as art.  Check out more about Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and the WeirdType/Pokemon Go app designer below!

Dear Basketball

Posted in fifth grade, fourth grade, third grade, and writing

February of this year, we read Kobe Bryant’s Dear Basketball poem (we used MrsBlewettELA’s TPT Questions) and watched the Oscar-winning short animated movie. Then, third through fifth grades wrote a “love letter” to SOMETHING they love. Check out their awesome work! Then, watch our video and check out the three-pointers!

Goldilocks and the Three Martians

Posted in picture book lesson, science, and third grade

Third grade enjoyed the story, Goldilocks and the Three Martians, in the Jackson Library. They used context clues to figure out the meaning of unknown words, and predicted what would happen to Goldilocks. When we discussed gravity, we watched it in action with a YouTube video of astronauts playing soccer aboard a spaceship.  That sure is memorable! Finally, we played a Kahoot! game about the story.

Twister!

Posted in technology, third grade, and writing

Third graders used their five senses when reading the story Twister! As we read the story, we emphasized finding the five senses on all of the pages, admiring the beautiful paintings. After the story, the kids dragged the phrases to the correct sense box in a Seesaw activity I created for them.  “Natt’s eyes look big and round and full of tears.” This is a beautifully written and painted story! The kids liked how the illustrator painted the swing at the end of the story to match the text: “The sight of our porch swing stops me. An arm is broken, a slat is missing, it’s sloping on one chain.”
