2-252 Ms. Cutrone: E-Mails to Jan Brett

We read and responded to books by Jan Brett. Instead of mailing her letters, we wanted to email our letters to her instead.  Students typed their responses.  They were taught how to save their work and email it to Jan Brett as an attachment.  Here is a sample of our e-mail to Jan Brett.




Class 2-252 used iMovie to retell one of their favorite Jan Brett books The Mitten.  View the video below.


Students and teachers read many stories from talented authors Jan Brett or Tomie dePaola.  In computer class they used the program Comic Life to write a little about the author they have been studying as well as one of the books by that author.
