We had a couple of writing steps to get this underway. First the students picked their dream job and wrote three reasons why they wanted to be that. Then came the steps. Celeste Hickman had the idea to create a visual: a ladder to use as a graphic organizer so they wrote the steps they needed to make in order to get that job. I worked with Celeste and Michael Nappi.

I have moved my reviews to Shefari and for now am not sure if I will continue this blog…
Michelle Mayhood and I collaborated on this project. 1st graders wrote an acrostic poem based on their name in the classroom, as a part of writing closely tied to word work. Then in the library media center, they illustrated the words with MS Paint and typed them using “titles” on Windows Movie Maker. They sequenced them (matching pictures to words) using WMM, and I simply saved them as movies and gave them each a CD with their and their classmates’ movies on them. Here is Luisana’s movie. Here is Tony’s movie. Here is Keshawne’s movie. Here is Meikel’s movie.
