Students did a great job in their first visit to the STEAM lab this week!
The lab hosted:
Ms. Almanza’s Kindergarten, who learned how to use the laptops and were introduced to Code.org
Ms. Montoya’s 1st grade, who finished their Monarch Hero wings and make great progress in their coding course
Ms. Lugo’s 2nd grade, who started Course C in Code.org and made posters for recycling! Our 2nd grade team sent classroom artists to make door reminders and start work on hallway posters made from reused materials. They kicked off schoolwide recycling this week!
Ms. Roesch’s 3rd grade, Mr. Torres’ 4th grade, and Ms. Guzman’s 5th grade almost immediately mastered all the new lab procedures and tools! They jumped straight into Code.org, and found that the class assignment hyperdoc, goal setting padlet, and Classroom Q gave them a lot more control over their own learning experience!
During G/T Genius hour:
Ms. Massey’s class wrapped up their Scratch projects, and started work on their display objects – I can’t wait to see their interactive research projects! Ms. Grimaldo & Ms. Martinez’s 4th graders started work on their “Poetree”. They learned about Haiku and then wrote their own about trees on paper leaves. They ground up old crayons to make wax paper fall foliage to showcase their poems.
Looking forward to week 5!
