WE HAVE REALLY BIG NEWS!!

We are now a 1:1 classroom, which means we have a brand new Google Chromebook for each student in our class!! Thanks to a generous donor, the Chromebooks were purchased and delivered on Friday. The sky's the limit since our Chromebooks turn on instantly, and we have access to these devices all day, every day!! We are looking forward to expanding our digital horizons!

In one day, we already used our Chromebooks to play Kahoot, do some coding, write a Storybird, and play Battleship. WOOHOO!!!
