Chief Tech Tips
Tips for 1:1 iPad Integration - January 20, 2015
First in Math Team of the Week
Stay tuned next week for a class trophy for the top earner and medals for the top student in each classroom!
This year the dates are February 23 - 27.
Also if you know anyone who works in the field of engineering who might be willing to come and work with the kids, please let me know who they are as well.
An App and a Snack
Join me this afternoon! We will be exploring World Book Online and possibly taking a quick look at Smore.
This semester An App & A Snack will meet on the 3rd Tuesday of the month (unless there is a need for a special session at another time).
STEM Parent Night
More details are coming soon, but plan to come and join us!
As usual, please let me know if I can help you or your grade level with planning or gathering materials!
For K-2, check out "Follow the Digital Trial", for 3-4 take a look at "Super Digital Citizen", and 5th grade check out "Trillion Dollar Footprint". Also remember that if you are doing research this month, you might want to check on lessons on citing sources, searching effectively, or copyright. I can help you find good lessons for all of these topics!
Once you have taught your 5th lesson (many of you will do so this month), you are ready to apply for Common Sense Media certification. See me for details when you are ready.
For Your Information
- If you need to access your transcript (for recertification purposes) on PD360, there is a video that shows you how to do so on 7ignites.com. Go to the Teacher Page, then the filing cabinet and look under Edivation (PD360).
- If you are a Twitter user, you may have noticed that Twitter is now open to staff. Please share photos and ideas of what you are doing in the classroom using #7IgnitesUs. You can also use the handles @7Ignites and @D7Super as well. Let's show off some of the amazing things we are doing here at Chapman!
Chief Photo Gallery - Jr. FLL Teams
Jr. Lightning Chiefs
The Jr. FLL Teams started meeting last week. In these pictures they working on team building.
Each team is hard at working trying to build a tower of cups. The challenge is that they can only use the rubber band tool to touch the cups. You should have seen how hard they were all working!
We got it!
One team met the challenge and built the pyramid of cups. Can you tell how proud they are??
