It's A Mystery

There have been a lot of unsolved crimes happening at Proctor School recently but students in Mrs. Boucher's Class have used their problem solving strategies and worked to help find the solution. After reading books from the Mystery genre, students worked together to write, edit, and record their own stories.  Enjoy their Mysteries!  Can you predict the solution before the end?

A New Home For a Hermit Crab

Kindergarten students in Mrs. Inconiglios's class have created their own version of A Home for a Hermit Crab.  Students constructed 3D sea creatures, built an underwater background scene, and worked together to rewrite the story.
Using the app Explain Everything we then put everything together for A New Home for a Hermit Crab.

Favorite Memories

June is the time of year for students and teachers to reflect of the past 180 days they have spent together.  Mrs. Hancock, Mrs. Dunn, and Mrs. Corliss used iMovie on the iPad and recorded their students' memories of their time together.
