Check out our class student blogs.  We are really getting going posting our work to share.  We would really love you to leave a comment!

Room 14 Winter Acrostic Poems.

We used 'Pic Collage' and 'Popplet' to brainstorm ideas around the things we feel, see, feel, smell, taste in winter.  We used these great ideas to write Winter Acrostic Poems.  
We published them on window dioramas for a class display 
(and put them on our blogs, of course!).

We were at the shed and it was a cold frosty morning.

I was on the motorbike in the rain getting firewood.

Nana and I went shopping on a rainny day.

The day I went snow boarding on the mountain it was freezing.

Every winter weekend I go on the farm.
