She highlighted the many revisions that text goes through before being published and had interactive writing sessions with students.Multiple digital projects were created this month. 5th grade completed a unit called Bigger, Better, Faster: Our Changing Nation. Students created glogsters, animotos, photo stories, and power points. Many of these products included multiple products integrated within one another. One 4th grade class completed persuasive photo stories using images from creative commons and text written writer’s workshop. Another 4th grade class created Animoto book trailers for authors that they had been studying for several weeks. These students also used creative commons images in their products.Preparations were made for the upcoming Exemplary Media Center Open House being held on March 3. A major weeding project was completed which has updated our collection to an average age of 1999.A professional learning session was held for all teachers on using Literacyhead.
