Our Special Guest

Local Author/Illustrator Dianne Conrad visited our classroom last week as part of our bookmaking project!  She is writing and illustrating her first children's book called "Dama Grows"  She brought one of the paintings for the book with her and her sketchbook.  We got to ask to ask her TONS of questions and we saw her website Then, she gave us some tips while we worked on the artwork for our greenscreening project.  We were so glad to have a special visitor in our classroom and we hope to buy her book when it's ready!

The Six Little Chickens & The Big, Bad Coyotes

One of our big projects this year was making books.  Our class wrote a fractured fairy tale and then we decided to turn the story into a play script.  Next, we wanted to act it out using our script.  We filmed our play using a green screen and the DoInk app to put in the backgrounds from our story.  You can read our story here or watch the video
