Things That Make First Graders Happy
After reading the story, the first graders headed to the computer lab and created a picture using the Paint program of something that makes them happy. The pictures were put into a video and the students each narrated their page, sharing what makes them happy. Below are the finished videos.

SECOND GRADE UPDATE
Students are also working on their problem solving and critical thinking skills through activities on Code.org. At their own pace, students are completing activities that require them make the computer do a variety of actions, including draw a design. The students are enjoying the challenge and are realizing that while they may make a mistake the first time, they can accomplish their goal by learning from past experiences.
