Literacy Week assembly, Inman launched a short skit about how building something from scratch takes time, patience, practice and tools and so does Literacy!
Then we had an amazing author and illustrator do a read aloud of “Am I a Scientist” written by Poh Tan and illustrated by her son Kahfri Mau. Kahfri had the audience thinking with his questions.
During Literacy week, students learned and used a variety of tools that included selecting or creating inspirational quotes and illustrating them, playing fun online literacy games with buddies, creating questions for the school wide Kahoot Literacy Challenge. In addition, teachers swapped each other to do a read aloud in another classroom!
Here is Mr. Chow, the Kahoot Master during our school wide game. Lots of cheers and excitement filled the room!
Next step is to organize our questions into Categories which could generate more even more questions. These could be added to our journals.
