Making Movies in Maths Class

Maths in Room 14 is different this year. This year Room 14 and Room 13 cross group for maths. So that means that during maths time Room 14 and Room 13 are mixed into different maths classes!

One of the activities we do in Miss Ouano's maths class is make movies showing our understanding of our learning. When we finish our practice activities we get to work with a buddy to plan and film a movie showing how we solve different maths problems.

Here are few examples of our movies:

Creating E-Books in Room 14

Do you know what an e-book is? No its not an egg book, it is a 'electronic book'. This week Room Fourteen have been learning how to create an e-book using google presentation.

The week before Easter, Room Fourteen used Story Starters to find a prompt for their writing. Miss Ouano guided us through the structure, helped planned, and away we went writing. 

After we had edited out writing, we marked with a buddy then with Miss Ouano. Then we used our writing to create an e-book using a template that Miss Ouano had prepared. We had to draw pictures for each page to show what was happening in each part.

Some of the prompts from Story Starters were hilarious! Check out some of our cool e-books below!
