We Can See from Lincoln Alexander

This is a book that was created in the fall by Mrs. Hulse @HulseAnnMarie. She was inspired by the project and took a risk and participated. She used our initial way of sharing, DropBox.  Joanne Babalis @joanne_babalis created a collaborative blog to provide a greater audience for our We Can See Books. Here is her school's book. Please view and leave comments for her students.

We Can See ...in the Winter

We took photos of what we can see around our school yard. We noticed a lot of changes have happened at our school. Here is our book titled, Our Schoolyard in February.

Do you see any differences?
Is your view different in the winter?

What Can You See? and China!

As part of this amazing project, we have been encouraging our families to bring in pictures or create their own "What Can You See?" books to share with our classroom and other participants! We have been overwhelmed with such a positive response (comments, questions, connections, family vacation photos, etc) because this is actually where we hoped this project would go!

One of our student's (A.C.) has made connections to her own culture in China and, with her parents, they contacted their family overseas to see if they would be interested in sending us pictures from her cousin's school!

We are so excited to be sharing this incredible addition to the "What Can You See?" project! We thank A.C. and her family for collecting these wonderful photographs and for letting us put them together into a digital book to share with all of you!

This video has generated lots of discussion in our classroom and has certainly made A.C. very proud of where she comes from, her family, and her ability to teach us new things about her culture at school! She has recently been teaching all of us Chinese, Chinese writing and how to count!

We continue to encourage our families to participate in this wonderful learning opportunity by commenting, asking questions, making connections or by creating their very own "What Can You See?" book with your child! We look forward to sharing more of this journey with you as it unfolds!
