After reading the story, Miss Carney and Mrs. Ardizzoni helped students brainstorm and discuss their ideas of things they could see, hear, taste, touch, and smell during the season of spring.
During the next meeting, students wrote one sentence for each of the senses, beginning with the phrase, "In the spring, I" see / hear / taste / touch / smell ________________________________.
Then students used the app, Drawing Pad on their classroom iPads, to illustrate one of the sense sentences they had written. After illustrating, Miss Carney and Mrs. Ardizzoni helped students type the sentence on their drawings and students then concluded by "autographing" their artwork.
