LogosThe ASPIRE class as well as the Penticton grade 5 classes learned about good logo design and then got to try their hand at designing a logo for the Creation Station or their own radio show! Prior to our logo activity some of the students had already been working on logos. It was interesting to see how they reworked their designs after our activity taking into account the principles of good design. I'll describe the logo activity in more detail next week after the other classes have completed it.
CharadesThe AIM class as well as the Penticton grade 3/4 classes participated in the Charades activity which I described last week. There are a few students who have an amazing ability to guess the right answer almost every time and many more who do an excellent job of communicating their clues non-verbally!
Radio PlayThe Penticton grade 1/2 class knocked my socks off with their reading of the story 'Chicken Little'. We did it as a radio play with each student reading the part of a character or the narrator. Once the recording has been edited I'll post the link here. There are many versions of Chicken Little; here is a link to the script that we used.
Audio Thank You CardThis week we sent off our audio thank you card to Chris Walker. Chris visited the Penticton grade 3 - 5 classes in January (you can read about it here). Here is a link to the card (https://soundcloud.com/ctworkschool/thank-you-chris-quiet) The choral parts were spoken by the Tuesday grade 3/4 class and the Thursday grade 5 class. The individual comments were made by students from the Wednesday grade 5 class. We received the following in response:
Thanks for taking the time to read about a few of the things that we did... This Week In Gifted!
