Here is a link to our latest Oakdale Eagle.
This has been an eventful week for our state and our students are trying to keep up with current events by reading our local newspaper, The Tuscaloosa News when we meet in the mornings. Miss Spencer and I (the co sponsors of the Oakdale Eagle) are encouraging our student reporters to post their own views on events that happen beyond our school community.
Hopefully followers of our blog will see our student reporters writing more about current events.
We got a lot done in journalism in afterschool today. Not only was there writing going on (special shout out to Jayden for his article), but there was also some real progress in peer editing. Carliyah, Vajayla, Avi’Anna and Kelsey were putting our special editing pencils to good use.
We got our youngest reporter Te’Anna (1st grade) on her blog and we discovered that one of our reporters (Aaliyah) knows a lot more about customizing our blogs than even the teachers . Miss Spencer asked if she would teach all of us so..Next week she (Aaliyah ) is going to do a mini-workshop for us so we can all learn how to do it!
Miss Spencer and I decided that our reporters had so much talent they should teach us more. We’ve already booked Centurion and Tristan to teach everyone about using online drawing programs two weeks from now.
What is your special talent? Do you think you can teach us?
Thank you teacher for all you do for us we love you and you love us.
We went to the ua on December 13,2016. We ate Donuts and apple juice for breakfast Resse Phifer Hall . Then we went to the place were the speaking studio and photograpy studio.We did our speech in the speaking studio and we took a group picture in the photograpy studio.
When we went to the UA the photographic people showed us a experiment using light.First,here are the materials that you need : box, tissue paper,flashlight ,and tape those are the materials that you need.Next take the box and cut a hole in the back and square in the front.
Don’t forget that your first draft of your article is due this Friday. And on Monday we begin peer editing. Everyone grab a color pencil and start correcting and making suggestions on your peer’s work.
Also remember that Thursdays are journal days. Bring your journal to share. Thursdays are also our afterschool journalism day.
We are glad to add Daniel and Destini, both 5th graders, along with Fabiana (3rd grade) and Kelasia (2nd grade) to the Oakdale Eagle as new reporters.
