|Celebration of Thanks
We have a lot to be thankful for. Thanksgiving is the perfect time to share with our friends and family how thankful we are.
The second graders put on a Thanksgiving performance for their family members. The students chanted poems and prepared a slideshow of things which they are thankful for.
Step One: Each student wrote about something that he/she is thankful for.
Step Two: Each student created an illustration using Kid Pix to match their writing. The illustrations were exported as jpeg files.
Step Three: Insert the jpeg illustrations into Microsoft PowerPoint along with the student's name.
Step Four: The students practice reciting their part
During the performance, the slide show was displayed on the Smart Board, as each student passed the microphone to narrate his/her slide "live" during the show.
