Amy Hargrave’s 1st graders made observations about the season during the month of their birth.  They used these observations to write 2 clues using capital letters and ending punctuation.  Finally, they created a 2 slide riddle using technology skills such as creating text boxes, changing font size, centering text and inserting images.  Not only that, but the flexible seating arrangement in Mrs. Hargrave’s room made whole group carpet instruction a dream, and students were more easily able to assist those around them.
