Publishing Stories On Our iPads

Today, we used the app Scribble Press to publish our stories! Students are typing the words and drawing or taking pictures for their illustrations. I hope to find a way to share these on our blog!

We are loving the iPads -- the possibilities are endless!

Skype Mystery Reader

We had a special guest reader last Friday all the way from Georgia! Kate's aunt was our mystery reader for the week. We enjoyed the story Pete The Cat - I Love My White Shoes. It was the first Skype experience for many of the students and they were in awe that we could see and talk to someone so far away! Thanks, Tiffany!
