Sonic Pics Celebration!
I believe strongly that it is important to celebrate authors in my classroom. First trimester we celebrated because the students' published their first book of the year. As the students finished their persuasive commercials on Sonic Pic, I was not sure if I would invite the parents in again to celebrate. As I thought about it, I decided that I wanted to send the message to the students as well as the parents that digital publishing is as important as paper publishing. So I invited the parents to a Sonic Pics Open House using the Smart Board, Mr. Mark and I showed all 24 commercials. Each commercial was about 2 minutes, and we just "rolled" through them. I am happy that I made this decision for a few reasons first we celebrated our writing, the students were proud of their commercials shown on the BIG screen and finally as a class we celebrated our technology knowledge. Here are a few more examples of the students' work.
