Cameron - Newbery Award Winning Prediction

Podcast cover
Read more

The Newbery project was a readers’ challenge that promised to be an “award winning” experience.
Students diligently read twenty current novels, which were possible contenders for the 2010 Newbery Medal. The Newbery Medal is awarded annually to the author with the most distinguished contribution to American literature for children in the United States during the preceding year. The goals of the Mock Newbery Challenge were to enrich and extend the current 7th grade language arts curriculum, to enhance higher level thinking skills through debating, persuasive speaking and writing, literary analysis, and much more. After reading and critically examining all 20 novels, students determined the one they felt best met the Newbery criteria and created this podcast to convince others.

Incredible! A Frog Dissection

Podcast cover
Read more

The Coulee Kids have been studying amphibians. These unique creatures live a “double life” as they rely on the land and the water to grow from an egg to a tadpole to a froglet to an adult frog. Because amphibians depend so heavily on land and water for survival, they are excellent ecological indicators telling us if something is right or wrong with our environment.

As we explored further into the Phylum Chordata, we found out that frogs and humans aren’t so different than we originally predicted. Actually, they have very similar body systems with comparable organs and tissues as we have in our human body.

In this Coulee Kids podcast, you will hear about each frog body system and its correlating forms and functions. You will see a close-up Proscope photo of our frog dissection, which allowed us to closely examine each system first hand.

To add a clever literary twist to our scientific study, we added interjections, oh my, and appositives, phrases which clarify the noun. This was an enjoyable challenge to bring together both language arts skills and science knowledge.

MY STORY – A Collection of Personal Narratives

Podcast cover
Read more
For this podcast, the Coulee Kids wrote personal narratives. A personal narrative is a story about an event in the life of the writer. It is written from the author’s point of view and recreates an incident by showing, not telling, which meant we had to be creative with our word choice. The 6-trait skill we focused on for this piece was voice, more specifically, YOU hearing OUR voice in our writing. We went through the writing process and concentrated on reading fluency so that our audience would enjoy the presentation. Podject Leader: Grace

Classic Poetry Slam - R4

Podcast cover
Read more

The Coulee Kids studied figurative language, making sophisticated connections to literature, and how to effectively use emphasis, inflection, tone, and pace when performing a podcast. Students learned about copyright issues and were introduced to topics such as public domain and Creative Commons licenses. Flickr was used as a tool to gather photographs.

In a live poetry slam, it is the audience’s obligation to respond to the poet in some way whether clapping, cheering, booing, or snapping their fingers. We are asking for a virtual response, but since we are kids, only positive responses please. Who knows, your comments may show up in our next podcast! If you would like to respond, call us at 1-612-241-6109. A recording will be made of your voice and sent to our email address as a quicktime file. Keep in mind, our teacher will review all messages before sharing!

Welcome to the first podcast of the 2008-2009 school year! Most Americans know that the Fourth of July is our nation's birthday, but do you know that September 17, 1787, is the birth of the United States government? It is the day on which delegates to the Philadelphia Convention completed and signed the U.S. Constitution. Constitution Day is intended to celebrate not only the birthday of our government, but the ideas that make us Americans. The Coulee Kids created this podcast as a way to honor our constitution. Happy Constitution Day!

Coulee Kids Share – Installment One

Podcast cover

For the first student-created podcast of the year, the Coulee Kids share our impressions of seventh grade. We will tell you what we were worried about when we came to school, embarrassing moments, surprises, and the best and worst of seventh grade.

Since this is the opening podcast, it is also the first time many of us have used GarageBand, microphones, digital cameras, iPhoto, or iPods. What is really neat about this podcast is that it was created completely by kids. Our teacher was there if we had questions, but we were the ones that made the decisions and created the final project.
