OUR PADLET for The Fourteenth Goldfish!


   The #GRA2015, Global Read Aloud is underway! We are all enjoying the book and the kids are full of ideas about what will happen next.  The book has done a good job of giving us descriptions of the characters, so the students have done a great job creating predictions.
   We decided to use a tool called Padlet to share out thoughts and predictions with other classrooms. I created a new Padlet and shared the link with the kids and away they went!  They even figured out how to add pictures.
   We connected via GHO with another classroom to share our predictions.  They students loved being on camera sharing their ideas with other 4th grade students. We are looking forward to connecting with them again at the end of the book to see if our predictions were accurate.  These creative kiddos were full of great ideas!


***Any time, any place, learn!*** ;)
