An AWESOME Week....Sleep Over With Easton, Making Sock Puppet Movies and Clifford Day!

My friend Easton and I had a sleep over last night.  I like it when Easton comes over because I have someone to play with.  He is cool and one of my best friends. I have known him since preschool at Country Kids Club.  
We played with my LEGO world downstairs.  I stacked all of the little people up around the room.
Easton and me played with LEGO's for four hours straight.
Yesterday in the library, Mom taught us about the Sock Puppets app after we read Cece Bell's book Sock Monkey Boogie Woogie.  I noticed right away that it was the same illustrator and author that wrote Bee-Wigged.  I love Cece's books.  
In Sock Puppet, you can make a puppet show.  You choose characters, your stage and you can make the puppets talk.  When you are taping, they are saying the same thing you are.  When you are finished with your puppet show, you can listen to it and share it on YouTube with your classroom or on a stage.

Today, Easton and I made a Sock Puppet play.  It was about detention and the library at school.  It was super funny.
After Easton went home, Mom and I put the Sock Puppet app on her iPad.  I made more plays about the sock puppets in space.
Yesterday was also Clifford Day in first grade.  Miss Edwards, our class helper, made us all Clifford hats.  We ate lunch in small gym with our families.
We did a play about having good manners.  I had a part in the play.  I read books to my Dad and Mom.  I read Clifford Pal's to my Dad.  
And we even had a special guest.....Clifford, the Big Red Dog.  I think he looks a lot bigger on the cartoon.  

This week was awesome!

  3. Hi Hagan,
    I am a 3rd grade teacher from Pennsylvania and your mentor in the Student Blogging Challenge. Your blog looks great! I love all of the pictures that you share because it helps the readers to better understand what you are talking about. You have some pretty cool legos in your basement. Some of the boys in my class would love to play with them! Thanks for sharing about the sock puppet app. I am going to check it out. It sounds like something my students would like too. Here is a link to our class blog if you want to learn more about us. We did Skypes with 2 schools in Iowa this year. http://mrstinaschmidt.edublogs.org/
    Have fun blogging!
