We’ve been trying out a really fun app called Shadow Puppet. Students in third grade made puppets today about their favorite book so far in our California Young Reader Medal Competition. We have 5 picture books to read and when we finish students will vote for their favorite.
This is Rece’s Shadow Puppet.

Jessie and Olive teamed up to produce this video book review of Fairy Magic by Daisy Meadows.
Marin and Olive teamed up to make this great video book review of Dolphins and Sharks by Mary Pope Osborne.
Avala and Olive got together by the fireplace to review the book, Laura and Nellie, based on characters by Laura Ingalls Wilder. Thanks, Avala, for doing it twice! We are all still learning how to do iMovie on the iPad.
This year, Marin is our first Red Dot Book Club member to do a Book Report. She chose one of our new book report ideas–A Book Report in a Can! After reading the book she decorated a can to be one of the main characters in the book. Then, using seven index cards, she wrote about the elements of the story–plot, setting, characters, problem–and added her own opinion about her favorite part. It’s now on display in the Library for all to admire. Thanks, Marin!
Angie and Jessie also did Book Reports in a Can!
