Information Sharing Through Paper Slide Videos

First grade students have been learning about reading and understanding expository text - text that informs.  Students researched topics they were interested in, using online web sites like PebbleGo as well as books. Students wrote and illustrated brief compositions about their topic. Then they used document cameras to create paper slide videos to share what they learned.

Vicente, who researched volcanoes, and Daniel, who learned about Pluto, are in Ms. Cervantes' first grade dual language class. Their pieces were written and recorded in Spanish, because instruction in science is conducted in Spanish in dual language classrooms.

Our first graders are truly growing as readers, writers, and speakers!
