More from ignite the night by Sophia

Well this is our ignite. And only it is different than a student leads we were presenting what we learned this year in an ignite! An ignite is a slide show but there are rules you have 20 slides and each of them take 15 seconds to auto advance and in all that it will take 5 minuets! FUN! Right?
Each of us are making our own and they are all so FABULOUS everyone did such a good job so maybe I should shut my mouth and take some photos.
Thanks for reading,

The Living museum

So what we are doing is the grade 4s are doing medieval
times and the grade 5s are doing ancient civilizations.
We are doing it on June 11th and we all worked so hard
So if you are a parent you should come.

Ignite Presentations

Today, we started work on our Ignite Presentations. We watched a few examples of Ignite videos and talked about some characteristics they all have in common and some techniques each presenter used in unique ways to make his or her presentation particularly effective.

Some Examples:

Why Blog?

My Beautiful Wheelchair

How and Why to Make Video Games

We are starting out by planning our Ignite Presentations on paper (that we folded into eighths) and will talk about next steps later this week. Some students already have ideas of how they want to create their slideshows. Many think they'll use the Google Drive, Molly wants to teach people how to use SmileBox and I think I'll show people how to use Prezi!

Here is what we've talked about so far (this is also a Google Doc that has been shared with all students in Room 209)

Using Minecraft for a Project!

Austin in Tiiu's class created a whole bunch of structures in Minecraft and toured us through them, talking about the life of Chris Hadfield for his famous Canadian project. As I said yesterday, finally I see an educational use for Minecraft! Way to go, Austin, this was creative and innovative and I'm sure, very fun for you to create!
