I was assigned to Frank for my 1st C4K for the month of February. Frank is in grade 5 at Pt England School in Auckland, Australia. School has just started in Australia, and Frank's first post was a picture of him, and just said how excited he was about the first day of school.
We had a special C4K assignment: A sixth grader shows demonstrates why you do videos in EDM 310 in which Lauren used imovies to show her understanding of the customary system. She did a great job on this video, and the amount of time and effort she put into it really shows! The dialogue was great, I thought the segments were perfect in length, and I loved the interviews and commercials! This video really shows the importance of using technology in the classroom. Lauren as a 6th grader did a much better job at making and editing this video than I could have done. I hope that as a teacher I can inspire this level of creativity in my students.
Emma was the student I was assigned to for C4K week 2. Emma is in Mr Avery's 6th grade class at Dennett Elementary in Plympton, Massachusetts. Emma blogged about her school's recent spelling bee in which 10 students from 4th, 5th, and 6th grade were picked to compete. Emma was one of the 10 6th grade students in the spelling bee and she came in 3rd place. Emma and the other students should be very proud of themselves for participating!
For my C4K week 3 I read Maha's blog. Maha is in Ms. Eppele's 5th grade class in British Columbia, Canada. Maha's most recent blog was a short story she had written called "Under the Rug." Her short story was about a bear that was under a man's rug one day. The bear wiggled around so much it scared the man, but then the bear disappeared. After two weeks the bear came back, but this time the little bears mother came and got him. I thought Maha's short story was cute and creative!
