Thursday Blog challenge

We have finished our Paul Jennings story.
Using one tool persuade others that they should or should not read the story. You will need to work with your group to come up with how you are going to do this, the tool you are going to use, and what your argument needs to have in it.
Some suggestions:
Wordle, Vocaroo, Voice Thread, Kidpix, writing onto the blog, other ways that you can think of!
You may also want to add in some photos as well. You will need to use the imac for that or you can goggle some from the Paul Jennings site.
Have fun
Mrs Waterland

W.A.L.T find facts

Our reading group is learning to find information from our text. We read Kiwi Dog, then used Kidpix to write some facts from the story.

W.A.L.T identify key words

During reading time our two reading groups had to use to identify key words in the story, that helped us build pictures in our mind.
Here are our mind maps!
