2nd grade had a habitat day where they got to "explore" the different habitats. They learned about the polar regions, the desert, the wetlands, the grasslands, the mountainlands and the ocean. These exploring second graders learned about plants and animals that live in each habitat. Soon each student will become an expert on one of these animals and their habitat.
Mrs. Berns, the school's technology specialist, visited Kindergarten today and taught the students how to do a "breakout" session. In these sessions, the students must think critically and work together to solve problems and open locks. If the students successfully open all the locks, then they "break out" and win. The students loved the lesson and are excited to try another breakout session soon.
This month in computers grades 1-3 are learning about pixels and making our own pixel drawings. We are also learning by combining flat shapes we can create different shapes in our tangram game. In the next few weeks we will be “teaching our monsters how to read” and exploring SORA an online library.
