Ms. Martinez guided us through a THRASS class using our brand new THRASS cards. The students were excellent as they practised recalling their sounds with reference to their cards. Following this, we used Ipads in pairs to create a message through a comic strip programme. While highlighting that the Ipad is a tool, the students collaborated creating a story about the school rules. They took pictures and added captions, their task being to make optimum use of this tool. Ideas had to be portrayed clearly and simply.

What a surprise we had when we visited our Grade 1 buddies! They were dressed to express – in bat clothes! The buddies chatted about their creative thinking process, asked questions and then settled to reading quietly to each other. More about this process will follow. Enjoy these pictures and the weekend.
