Just a reminder that we are recording a novella that Mr. Chris and I wrote. The story, about kids solving a mystery using their technology skills, has twenty-five chapters.
Last week we brought you Chapter 5 and 6, where the students worked on solving the clues that their new 4th grade teacher, Mr. Brisbane had given them in multiple different formats. They were presented with pictures, audio directions from the computer, clues on a class website and search engines for research. In order to get Mr. Brisbane to talk they have to solve his puzzle. You, too, can follow the clues and help them out by utilizing some technology tools! Check out the class website at bit.ly/brisbanegrade4 and also the Clues Corner on the blog for a link to be part of the class!
This week, we have chapter 7. Our new sponsor, Texthelp, will be featured before and after Chapter 7. Texthelp, the makers of Fluency Tutor are offering it for free through the end of the school year. Try it today, by visiting: text.help/nightlightstories
