Jill Warren and Carol Nanney present to the Board of Education members

Jill Warren and Carol Nanney collaborated a project together for a 4th grade Biography Research Project. The unit included social study, literacy research, and technology standards. Students selected biographies in the library and read in groups. In library, students took notes from their biography and designed a cut out to look like their person based on the facts from the book and their research. They took their notes and wrote a short speech using Google Classroom in the computer lab. Students then changed their speech from 3rd person to 1st person. Mrs. Jill used apps called Chatterpix and Aurasma to record the students reading their speech as they pretended to be the person in the biography. Parents were invited to attend Parent/Teacher conference and come to the computer lab to use an ipad mini and the apps to view their students speech and research project.
