Mrs. Ham and I are fortunate to work for a school board that is filled with very passionate and technologically talented/progressive educators. So much so, that one (Angie Harrison) suggested we begin a "We Can See" project to connect our kindergarten classrooms and communities online through our blogs and the Twitterverse.
This project allows us to create books in any format (iPhoto, iMovie, ComicLife, etc.) to share what is unique and similar about our school contexts. Thus far, it has been a wonderful opportunity for many authentic experiences, including, but not limited to, shared reading, shared writing, and discussions.
Here is a peek into our first "We Can See" book:
If you are one of our blog followers and woud like to be included in this exciting project, please post a comment below. We would love to have more schools from around our city, province, country, and THE WORLD join in!
Thank you again to Angie Harrison for organizing this, and to those who have already submitted their books. Our students are really enjoying making connections about what they see and read.
