Celebrating Techy Teachers and Sharing A Few Techy Finds...

Spotlight on our very own Patty Domenick!

In a recent study of weather, our very own fabulous 4th grade teacher Mrs. Domenick encouraged her students to be creative scientist, writers and critical thinkers! Using the app Touchcast, 4th graders created weather reports about tornados, hurricanes and thunderstorms! Using the skills they have learned in multiple subject areas, they incorporated cause and effect reasoning and safety tips for these natural disasters in weather reports to share with their classmates! What an engaging way to teach science while also incorporating language arts, math and technology! Way to go 4th graders and way to go Mrs. Domenick!
