Another wonderful week in the Piney Point STEAM Lab!
The lab hosted:
Ms. Caro’s Kindergarten – who made amazing progress in their Code.org course! They quickly got the hang of Pair Programming and their excellent collaboration helped them solve a remarkable number of puzzles this week!
Ms. Pesce’s 1st grade learned to navigate to Code.org, sign into their course as partners, and work together using the Navigator/ Driver strategy.
Ms. Greenhouse’s 2nd grade learned how to sign into the universal password and access all their grade level resources through the PANTHERS page! They did a great job communicating and collaborating to solve problems!
Mr. Briceno’s 3rd, Ms. Martinez’s 4th, and Ms. Mulry’s 5th grade had a very good 1st week in STEAM Lab. Mr. Briceno’s class learned to use all the new organizational tools: the goal setting Padlet and the Classroom Q digital help function. 4th & 5th split their time between Code.org and their Genius Hour Bio Bottle projects.
3rd grade didn’t meet this week, but completed their Arts Partnership with Houston Ballet's Dance to Learn program.
4th & 5th grade made a very strong start on the Bio Bottle projects!
Eco-School’s Green Heroes:
Our Monarch Heroes launched the Monarch Money campaign this week to raise funds for new gardens! They also prepped their ambassador butterflies for their Journey North Symbolic Migration to Mexico.
2nd grade Recycling Team made their recycling pick-up rounds on Thursday, and artist teams from each class visited the lab to make their reused material recycling reminders for their hallways!
No Place For Hate:
Our Student NPFH Coalition and especially the Erasing Hate sub-committee did a fantastic job hosting our 1st event! Congratulations team! See highlights HERE
Name That Book: Our K-2 club is in full swing! Readers from Ms. Brown, Ms. Leal, Ms. Thormodsgaard, and Ms. Ballentine’s classes have read their first books, practiced their read-aloud techniques, and have made an all-around fantastic start.
