First Thanksgiving Facts

Mrs. Flott's, Mrs. Ogle's and Mrs. Riggin's students have been learning all about the first Thanksgiving.  They were so excited to share what they learned with others that they decided to create their own paper slide videos.  Each teacher used the document cameras in their classrooms.  The students took turns presenting their art work and sharing their information about Native Americans and Pilgrims.  Thank you, First Graders for sharing your awesome learning!

Second graders in Mrs. Greiner's class culminated their unit on Owls with a paper slide video.   The students presented their facts on Owls and created a class video.  Each student shared their art work on their owl and one fact about owls.  It was a great way to practice their speaking skills and the students loved watching their finished product!
