1st Grade Research on Colonial Times
To gather information about Colonial times the students went to various stations in the library. They had opportunities to create clay marbles, try writing with a feather pen and ink, use wooden dice to play a math game and try their hand at writing with chalk on a chalkboard. They also used the online resource PebbleGo to gather additional information. The students created a slide on the ShowMe app on the iPads to demonstrate what they've learned.
We Love Our Volunteers!
Hour of Code
The National Hour of Code is a global movement designed to help students understand coding and develop a foundation that will help them in any career path in the future.
The students loved coding and a student said, "I want to be a computer programmer!" after trying out coding. Even the teachers tried it out and showed that we are all learners.
