Welcome to the Second Grade Showcase!

Enjoy some of our technology projects.


Our Favorite Things

The end of the year means taking a look back on favorite activities throughout the previous months. Using Microsoft Paint, the students illustrated what they enjoyed best during second grade. Next, they used Word to type a script that would be used for recording. I pulled everything into the Book Creator app and had the students record their page. The result is an ePub book that can be read in iBooks on any iOS device or on a PC/Mac if the Google Chrome Readium app is installed.

While on an iOS device (iPhone, iPad, etc), tap on a book link below.

Look at our Self-Portraits!

Each fall, students draw their self-portrait in Microsoft's Paint program so that we can have an avatar for various online applications that we use (blogging, VoiceThread). At the end of the year, I combined all the drawings to make a collage. Enjoy the class quilts!

Animals and their Camouflage by Mrs. Shapard's Class


Mrs. Cooper's class has created an ePub book based on The Legend of the Poinsettia, by Tomie dePaola. It is called "Gifts of the Heart." Illustrations of the child's interpretation of gifts of the heart were drawn in one of the drawing apps on the iPads. Next, students journaled their thoughts. Everything was pulled into the Book Creator app where the students recorded the reading of their thoughts.
As long as you are on an iOS device (iPad, iPhone, iTouch) and you have the iBooks app, you will be able to open the link below to view the class book. Unfortunately, the books will NOT open on a PC. Follow these directions:

Snow People Glyph!
 
Do you know what a glyph is? The second graders drew snow people according to how they answered questions about themselves. Enjoy their illustrations! The snow person glyph instructions are below.

 
 
 
In September, we celebrated International Dot Day, a day to celebrate each person's creativity. After reading The Dot, by Peter H. Reynolds, students drew a "dot" picture in Microsoft's Paint program. Enjoy a look at their creations.



Mrs. Shapard's class uses dot patterns to make music.
