Cycle 3 focused on Language Arts & Digital Communication. First grade students examined the elements of a story and identified key features of a text. The students read one story and used the story elements to help them create a book review. They then formed an opinion about the books and used that opinion to give a rating. After writing a book review, the students used the app “AudioBoom” to record their book reviews. These recordings were then turned into QR codes that their classmates could scan to hear their book reviews. Check out their projects and see if their book reviews convinced you to read their book!
