Alphabet Antics

 

Clarence Fisher first introduced me to the idea of “writing the textbook” online a couple of years ago. This year, I am making a small attempt to do this through a primary wiki called Alphabet Antics. Together with other kindergarten and grade one classes (there are twelve members so far), my grade ones are recording and posting their learning about letters and their sounds.   My students enjoy seeing the videos or other content that they have contributed, but they are also fascinated to see the content from other classrooms.  Imagine that there are other children in far away places who are learning about the same thing as we are!  Their eyes grow bigger.

 

 

If you are a primary teacher and would like to be involved, come join us.  We’re learning together.
