in the two first grades in our school read the book
Geraldine's Big Snow by Holly Keller. After reading we
brainstormed different things that they think of when they think
of winter. Then I read to them several books that describe an
object and then tell you what it is such as What Bug Is It?
by Pat Cummings. So the children then in the computer lab first
wrote clues and drew the "answers" using KidPix. I then put them
together into several different PowerPoint Presentations that we
have been using as our opening to our morning news broadcasts on
WLES News! The children had a great time doing the project and
the rest of the school enjoys solving the clues. Here is one of
our PowerPoint Presentations.
