Hispanic Heritage Month Gallery Update

We figured out how to add audio to our Cardinals’ Nest web space (actually, it’s a wiki..a web 2.0 tool ), and are pleased to add student voices to the Hispanic Heritage Galleries. Thanks to CES Spanish teacher Marta Bou, the students are recording a greeting en español. Take a look (and a listen!!!) to the 5th grade gallery and the 6th grade gallery. We have a bit more recording to do, so keep checking back in….

Tener un buen día, amigos!

6th Grade Celebrates Hispanic Heritage Month

My 6th graders, with guidance of Mrs. Myers, researched prominent Americans with Hispanic roots and wrote a brief biographies based on their research.

During my 6th computer class, Mary Beth S. helped to process the text files to publish on on our “electronic bulletin board”…. you can read these biographies on this page of the Cardinals’ Nest web space.

More to come: The 6th grade recorded their voices to produce an audio companion to the text on the Cardinals Nest gallery. We’re trying to figure out the best way to accomplish this. Also, look for a similar gallery on the 5th grade page.
