In honor of the 100th day of school (January 27), we will be working on our building skills! There will be 100 of a variety of supplies (legos, cardboard, cups, etc.) and students will be challenged to build something using the available materials.
Makerspace Moments are Tuesdays and Wednesdays at 1:30pm in the Learning Commons! You can send students in small groups, or we can schedule a whole class visit - just let me know what you would like to do!
Hear Ye! Hear Ye! January will be Presentation Month!
Teachers that are using Google Classroom or Google Drive can create a shared presentation - each student can create one slide in the show!
Younger students can open MS PowerPoint in the computer lab and create one slide.
Let them share their New Year Resolutions!
Please let us know if you need help!
LifeSkills & Lifelong Guidelines SPOTLIGHT!
There is a display of books when you enter the Learning Commons - CHECK IT OUT!
I also add links and resources to our shared document available here: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1NFsEIehMDFzjrxnwBPpJsen3KBnIgTe4EHJwA2nJLC8/edit
