We are going to be creating invitations to the Celebration of Learning next month. This will allow you to practice arranging the text, changing the font style and size, and adding artwork. You should do your text first and then use the clipart library to add pictures or draw your picture using colored pencils.
Share what you are reading by leaving a comment. I will try to check the blog regularly although I'm also going to be trying to read more and look at the computer less.

We are going to be creating invitations to the
Celebration of Learning next month. I think you
still need some practice with arranging the text,
changing the font style and size, and adding
pictures. Please use something from the clipart
library as your picture and spend most of your time
practicing with the text. Details of this lesson can
be found here.
It is possible to use photographs that you find on the Internet, however, you must give credit to the owner. This lesson will explain how to get a photograph from a website in to iPhoto. We will be using Safari as our browser instead of Firefox. Click here to access the photos we are going to use for this lesson. Click here to see the instructions.
In this lesson, we will learn how to organize and edit digital photographs on the Mac using iPhoto. Windows-based computers have a similar program called Windows Photo Gallery. There are also online websites and apps that help you store and edit your digital photographs. You can access the instructions for the lesson here.
Since February is Black History Month, second and third graders learned about Motown - the music recording company from the late 1950's that was responsible for racially integrating popular music. African American musicians signed with Motown when many white-owned companies would not work with them. Many of the musicians we know today were inspired by Motown's stars.
Have you noticed owls in your neighborhood? The photograph is of a barred owl in our backyard. We have noticed the owls making a lot of noise lately. The newspaper article from Saturday's edition of the Atlanta Journal Constitution is all about owls. It is mating season for owls and the barred owls sound a lot like monkeys.
