Cycle 4 focused on Language Arts & Digital Communication. First grade students examined the traits of characters from picture books and learned to distinguish between factual character traits presented directly in the story and character traits that readers infer from the story. They read several books with the character they chose to study. After analyzing their character they made Keynote presentations on the iPads describing the characters. Some of the first graders used *Tag Cloud to make a poster to describe the character. The first graders turned their character Keynote presentations into a guessing game. Check out their projects and see if you can guess which character they are describing!
* Tag Cloud is a tool for generating “word clouds” from text that you provide.
