Success Story

Taught note taking skills to first grade yesterday. Couldn't believe when the teacher told me one of the students went home, read a book about turtles, and used my method to take notes about her book. She came in with a handful of post-it notes!

A Flurry of Fun in the BLC!




Students in pre-k and kindergarten are e-book authors and illustrators. Kindergarteners have been studying forest animals and have created a class e-book called ABC Forest Animals. Each student was assigned a letter of the alphabet. They had to research using www.enchantedlearning.com to identify an animal that lives in the forest that begins with the assigned letter. Students then saved a picture of the animal, inserted the picture into Book Creator App, colored the picture, and added text and audio to their pages.


Students in pre-k acted out a snowflake poem and then recited the story, Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What do you See? They were so excited to discover they would be creating their own e-books called Winter, Winter, What do you See? Students illustrated snow people, added their own names and recorded their voices reading the stories. We can’t wait for you to read along with us!


To view or download the class e-books, visit www.clover.k12.sc.us/Page/9347 on your iPad or iPod and open in iBooks.

‘Sno’ Many Questions and ‘Sno’ Many Sources to Go…




Students in second through fourth grade have been brainstorming lists of thick questions, going on scavenger hunts on www.scdiscus.org to find answers, and using apps and websites to discover phases of the moon.
Researching and project creations will continue into February. Watch for finished projects on www.clover.k12.sc.us/Page/9584.
