Students have been busy using technology in the classroom!
- All ninth graders received Chromebooks to use in their classrooms and at home for class projects
- 5th-grade students are using Google products to write letters to their pen pals from neighboring rival LeRoy
- Fifth-grade students are assisting their first grade partners as they learn about using technology in the classroom
- Teachers and students are using video apps for creative purposes
Mrs. Macy-Flint's class is engaging in an extremely rewarding and relevant learning opportunity for our students. They have connected with teachers in Le Roy, NY to work on a pen pal project. The students have used Google Apps for Education to communicate with students from LeRoy.
The first activity involved creating an “All About Me” presentation so the pen pals could get to know each other before sharing their written work. The fifth-graders have also read written work created by their "pals" and have provided feedback. One of the latest assignments has been a mid-year check in where the students gave their LeRoy friends an update on their school year and home life.
The students are excited to be the first class ever at Caledonia-Mumford to participate in the “Google Pals” project.
Google Classroom is basically a virtual classroom. Teachers can use their digital classrooms to post announcements, assignments, or questions. The students can also work on assignments together and be in separate rooms. It allows for the four components of the 21st-century classroom: critical thinking, creativity, communications and collaboration.
Video in the Classroom
The second video was created by a reading group from Mrs. Cornwell's class. They made a movie trailer for the book Lon Po Po.
