The kids worked hard on their programming in Mission 6-"Alien Contact". Then we learned about Conditionals--"If, Else" statements in coding. The kids had fun playing "Conditional Card Game". They used silly actions for their "If, Else" activities using various playing cards. After this, they used Conditional coding to solve the puzzles in Code.org.
We read a bit more of our book and found out that "E", the robot, is missing! Cooper Elliott may be involved, but we just don't know yet!
We used our convergent thinking to solve another Quotefall from House of Robots. The kids really love these and are getting really good at them! They used their divergent thinking to create solutions to a "House of Robots" F2OE. The work was very creative!
We continued our Hands On Equations work with Lesson 4. The kids learned a new "Legal Move" where they can subtract the same number from each side of the equation. This definitely blew their minds! We'll practice this a bit more after Spring Break to refresh our memories.
We worked on Courage Connections between ourselves and House of Robots. We had some good conversation about how this character trait can be seen in books and in real life.
Target will begin after Specials on Tuesday, April 13th because of Kindergarten Gifted Eligibility testing in the morning.
Have a good Spring Break!
