Lee Cook's Workout

Click here to look at information Lee gave out. You can also access the information on the Madison Mountain Lair, under technology tools. The theme was Anytime Anywhere Communication. Click on the tab, Digitized Classroom for some new information using Google Classroom. Try Google Cast for Education when students are presenting to the class. Under the tab, Digital communication, check out Adobe Spark. It is a tool like photo story. Very easy to use.

Thanks to the Shimp Family

The Shimp family built Madison School a Lego Board and purchased a White board for the GetFit lab. Fifth graders added positive words to the lego board. Students wrote their favorite book and drew their favorite character on the white board.
