Talkin' Turkey with Adobe Spark Video

Arrowhead 2nd graders did an awesome job of sharing facts they learned about turkeys using the FREE tool Adobe Spark Video (available on an app or via web). They completed a graphic organizer before beginning the project, which helped them organize the information and plan out their videos by placing one fact on each page. You can find some free turkey graphic organizers on the website What the Teacher Wants.

As the students worked, the teachers were making anecdotal notes on all of the MANY proficiency scales they were targeting with this project! Truly impressive. Check out the example below.

Thankful Cornucopias in PicCollage!

Let your students make a cornucopia of thankfulness using the apps PicCollage or PicCollage Kids! Students will add the cornucopia image to PicCollage and set as the background of their collage. Then, they'll use the web search tools, drawing, text and stickers to add things they are thankful for. This is a fun activity to personalize and share what they are grateful for. Click the image below to grab a copy to share with your students!
This idea was inspired by the amazing Erintegration!

Don't forget! The Billings Seesaw Social is next week. This is a fun, informal opportunity to connect with other teachers, learn more about Seesaw, or share ideas. Because this isn't a PD event, no OPI credits or MEA Trade will be offered.
