Cesar E. Chavez Day

We celebrated Cesar E. Chavez day today. We spent the morning learning about Cesar E. Chavez life. We used a great packet developed by the Los Angeles County Library. We read stories, did a play, and completed a crossword. After Recess we set up the LCD projector and watched a documentary / Biography on Cesar E. Chavez from the UFW (United Farm Workers) Website. We also used a timeline on the life of Cesar E. Chavez and listened to an NPR (National Public Radio) news report given in 2004 in observation of Cesar E. Chavez Day. After lunch, to Wrap up our day, we did a Read Aloud; Harvesting Hope. Finally we read The Historical Life of a Farmworker a great coloring book found in the elementary campaign pdf from the Cesar E. Chavez Foundation. NOW we’re ready for Spring Break!

Infotech 2007

We are competing at Infotech 2007!  We created a digital story about storytelling.  In our presentation we looked at how technology can open the doors to our imagination.  We looked at how story telling has changed and the role technology has had in this.  Check out our quicktime movie.

Feels like Spring

Hi everyone. Spring is just around the corner! Our plans include starting the typing tutor program in the computer lab. The Picasso head was kind of cool. We just started a new unit on Storytelling. I was thinking of having the students create a few digital stories. I am not sure what format to use yet. Does anyone have any ideas? Not having computers in the classroom that work, really limit what we can do. We have access to the computer lab and I use my personal laptop and digital camera.  I could check out a  projector for limited use. Oh well, that’s life in the Big City.

What we are up to

We started our Language Arts unit on Imagination this month.   The stories have been easy to get through.  In math we are practicing multiplication.  We are trying to use multiplication with two digits.  We started a unit on the Moon and on Native Americans.  Visit us soon to see our projects.
