We worked with our Instructional Tech Specialist, Mrs. Hazlett, to begin working on our "Digital Passport". This will provide basic Digital Safety and Citizenship before we move on to establishing accounts on Edmodo.
We started our intro to Coding with a very basic activity using simple commands to create a shaded picture.
We read the first chapter of our novel, House of Robots. The kids love this graphic novel already! We have quite a few copies, but the book is widely available if your child would like his/her own copy.
The kids started off strong with great collaboration to complete the "Marshmallow Challenge". Our winning tower was 25.5 inches tall! Wow!
We learned about S.M.A.R.T. goals and also about how our different ways of learning can help us achieve more. The kids took a Multiple Intelligences Inventory to see their preferred learning styles and possible strengths. They graphed their results, which helps me to see the preferences and talents in my class.
The kids also reviewed a Mindfulness technique called "Still Quiet Place". The kids enjoyed it very much!
