Week in Review - October 21st - 25th

We have another wonderful week in Room 222 under our belt. 

Check out our cool activities from this week:

This week, we became experts at using QR codes as an short-cut way of getting us to the websites we were hoping to visit. We used the iPad mini's as our QR reading tools.

We also continued our study of Jane Goodall with an amazing article found by our friend S.F. Using this article as our source of information, we were able to collect our thoughts on a website called

Here is a screenshot of our learning:

We also became expert sentence observers this week. Look at all of the amazing things we noticed in these two sentences!

We finished off our week by watching a Question and Answer video with one of our favorite Authors, Kate Messner. Kate is the author of Marty McGuire, our Global Read Aloud book. Our kiddos were so excited when she mentioned that she has two new Marty McGuire books coming out very soon!

We are all looking forward to another great week. Thanks for checking in!


  1. What a busy week! Love seeing everything the kids are learning :)

  2. Wow! What a fun week. I love that you get to read the book, and learn so much about the author ;)

  3. Hi Mrs. Bright's Class,
    We are reading Marty McGuire and we watched the first video by Kate Messner too. What chapter are you reading now? We don't want to spoil the book if we are ahead of you. Next Wednesday week we will make predictions about Marty's great idea at the end of Chapter 9. We wonder if you have ideas about what her great idea might be too.
