Rachel Wheaton's Math Class

Rachel's sixth graders reviewed equivalent fractions for the beginning of their fractions unit. Students were given everything they needed to make granola, but were not given the most logical measuring tools. For example, they needed 1/4 c. chocolate chips but only had a 2/3 measuring cup. They had to create equivalent fractions for all of the measurements to make sure they had the correct amount of each ingredient.

Brenda Zoller's Class

Brenda's fifth grade students used a Nearpod lesson to learn about giving respect to authors and making proper citations for citing a source. Using Nearpod, students were able to engage in the lesson and submit their drawings and responses.

Brenda would love to share this resource with you. Talk to her about using Nearpod!

Using OSMO for Building Customized Spelling Lessons

Connie Jesch's Grade 3

Connie's students are learning how to build customized spelling lessons with the OSMO app. They are given spelling words to depict with pictures. Once the picture is loaded in OSMO, they can attach a word and set the difficulty level.

Practicing spelling words with OSMO takes students deeper into critical thinking and improves retention of knowledge.

Ann Wilder's Grade 2

Students from Ann's class used their spelling words to find picture associations. They uploaded their pictures and added words using the OSMO app. They were then able to share the lesson with the entire class.

Talk to Ann and Connie about OSMO!

Carrie Staib's Kindergarteners

Carrie's kindergarteners enjoyed making collaborative and individual projects using Strawbees. They are one of the first classes to use the new Marrs MakerLab!

We look forward to their next visit and new creations!

Good Luck to Alicia Schmidt

Alicia, and the new little Schmidt, worked on a video submission for the Jacobs Educator Award from Indiana University. Students from Alicia's classes demonstrated their use of technology to support problem-based and/or inquiry learning. We wish both of them good luck with their entry!
