Here's what we're working on currently:
My Kindergarten friends continue to wow me with their use of Kidspiration. We have mastered how to insert pictures and add text. Up next is a digital picture and text to educate others about germs and the prevention of illness. We're going to teach Tritt how to stay healthy!
We have been working in PowerPoint and Google Earth to learn about our global address. This is a challenging concept, but the students have begun to understand where they live in the world. We'll head to Word next and use many of the skills we learned (text and pictures).
We started 2016 with a bang! Second graders created dynamic story timelines about Jackie Robinson or Martin Luther King Jr. in the web app Sutori. They will be working with a partner to come to some conclusions about how these two men have similarities and differences. Then we're venturing back to our Monster Project to introduce ourselves to our sister school. We'll even throw in some graphing to be used during math!
Third grade finished their patriot infographics at the beginning of the quarter. Now we will continue our use of digital resources to research about Georgia's habitats and their threats and create a more robust infographic. Fun! We have graphic designers in the making!
Fourth grade will be tackling digital citizenship as well as social studies as they create a Fakebook page about one of our Founding Fathers. They'll put a modern spin on the lives of those men that started it all! #historyisfun!
We're continuing our public service announcement project using Office365's PowerPoint as well as Animoto (a web-based video creation app). They love this project! It encompasses each part of STEM (the engineering process and the 4 Cs). I can't wait for the students to share their final cuts. Some will even make it on to the morning announcements!
