Today We Went on an Adventure…

What an awesome day spent together, learning, laughing, engaging. I was so proud of our students who represented our school so well. Way to go!

We started off our day visiting the local Apple Store in the mall. Upon arrival, we became Apple Ambassadors and got to wear a special Apple magnetic pin that we wore for the rest of the day…and got to keep!

The staff were so welcoming and once we split into teams, they advised, and coached in how to use the app called Clips. It’s free in the app store.

The task was to take a poem they’d been given, and to bring it to life using the app Clips. Students spent about an hour exploring the app, working with the Advisor in putting together their project, and then finally added the fun effects such as filters, emojis, stickers, music, and so on. All groups had brought in some props to help tell the story of the poem. Most importantly of all, the students had fun!

We concluded our visit at Apple by watching all of the groups’ projects on a big screen. Students were given a USB wrist bracelet with their project on it to take home.

Our next mission was to enjoy a picnic-style lunch outside beside Masonville Library. It was a gorgeous day so we took advantage. Afterwards, we went into the library and met the librarian named Linda. She taught us how books are organized in a library, what a Call Number is, read us a book called Library Lion and invited us to write a short book of our own.

Next, it was time for a library tour. Finally, students were invited to explore the library and sign out a book with their library cards and take them home to enjoy.

Thank you to all of our parent volunteers: Mrs. Franze, Mrs. Paterson, Mrs. deRond, Mrs. Cifelli, and Mrs. Pinto. We appreciated your time and energy today and it made our trip extra special to have you there.

 

Here are the completed student projects. Fantastic job, everyone!

      Dear Emme,
      I’m so glad you had fun. We couldn’t have picked a better day. The weather was amazing and it was nice to be able to eat outside under a tree. I really like how the Apple Store allows classes to visit…for free!
      Love, Mrs. S
