First graders at both Atkins and Keystone used Microsoft Word to compose a short text about Spring and the things they like to do or see in Spring. Then we learned how to copy and paste to put that text into Festisite to create a spiral text.
Once printed, the spiral text became a part of the Spring picture students drew. There was lots of creativity, some students turned the spiral text into the belly of a bunny while others made it the sun. Some other ideas were to make the spiral text the center of a flower or a ball for a game of volleyball. There were lots of creative drawing and great details in the illustrations! Here are a sample of some of the creations.
