3rd grade Tackles Keyboarding

Submitted by megan.oropeza on Mon, 09/12/2022 - 06:19

Our little 3rd graders are working hard at memorizing the keys on the keyboard! We have been going through lessons each day to get familiar with letter location. Our focus has been on having good keyboarding position, trying to keep our hands on “home row” while typing, and keeping our eyes on the computer monitor. We love keyboarding!!!

The power of Teamwork

Submitted by megan.oropeza on Thu, 09/08/2022 - 06:25

2nd grade has been working on learning the power of team work! To practice team work, 2nd graders were given the task to stack their shoes to see which group could make the tallest tower. We’ve learned that working together means we try new ideas, listen to everyone, and have fun! We’ve also learned that we all have different strengths and can bring many new ideas to each activity.

Team Building in Fourth Grade

In 4th Grade we did a team building activity to help build community in our classrooms. Students were given the task to stack their cups into a pyramid without using their hands. Each group was given a rubber band and a string for each student. They had to talk about ideas, work through things that didn’t work, and find a way to work together. Each group successfully stacked the cups!

Code and Go in First Grade

Submitted by megan.oropeza on Wed, 09/07/2022 - 06:36

Ms. Craner's class was so excited to learn about the roles we all play when working together in a group for our social studies this week.  We used our Code and Go robots for the first time!  The Driver programmed the mouse, the Navigator created the program, the DeBugger fixed the problems in the program and the Designer wrote down the program.  Everyone had so much fun learning about their roles.  We programmed the mouse to go to the beginning of the nursery rhyme.  Every group got to do at least 2 boards with different nursery rhymes on them.  We can't wait to use our robots again.
