Robin Goble (Cub Run, Art) and the specialty teachers hosted Cub Run's first Cubs For Peace Celebration. Students and faculty took part in the Pinwheels for Peace project by creating and decorating individual pinwheels to 'plant' on the fence along the playground. Visible from the road, this art installation promotes goodwill from the students to the community. Using pictures of the event, Robin green screened this video for Cub Run's Facebook page.
Julia Geisert (Cub Run, kindergarten) says, "My students took pictures of Bb objects around the school with my iPad mini. I used Adobe Voice to have each student teach the letter sound. They really enjoyed listening to themselves and their classmates on the video and it was super easy!" Adobe Voice is a free app.
Seventh graders at WSPMS used Puppet Pals to show their understanding of the characteristics/needs of living things. The rubric students were given explained what they needed to include, and challenged them to go beyond the typical act of just listing the ten important points. Here's an example of how creative students can be with an open-ended assignment like this, while still proving they understand the information they are being asked to learn!
