Fourth Grade students are making presents for the holidays - using paint, popsicle sticks and Elmer's glue. They have been very creative in their designs, and working hard. They are making a whole host of designs, including jewelry boxes, bowls, ferris wheels, phone holders and trucks, to name a few.
In the spirit of giving, their constructions are for gifts for other people,
and not simply for themselves.
Using a digital book writing app, called Book Creator,
second grade students wrote and narrated books
on how to be respectful learners.
A sample of individual book videos are below:
On Wednesday we start a new After School Club, entitled Cardboard Creations.
The students chose the topic. It will run as a three week mini-club.
Registration is now closed.

During STEM Project Integration time, second grade students come to the STEM lab for introductory lessons on how to use computers. They are learning how to log in using their school usernames and passwords, and are then using a set of typing lessons entitled Keyboarding Without Tears. This is a great program that has them do games and activities which forces them to use correct hand placement while learning and playing. They really enjoy it.
