Another fantastic week - the new year is off to a great start in STEAM Lab!
Ms. Hernandez, Ms. Brown, and Ms. Giron's did a wonderful job learning about the Galapagos penguin, making a their cardboard models, and learning to use Scratch Jr to create a project sharing what they learned.
K & 1st went out for the year's first campus clean-ups and made some excellent observations outside - Ms. Brown's Monarch Heroes spotted 7 chrysalides and more than 20 larvae.
3rd grade's second week of X3 with Houston Ballet was even better than the first as they named their teams, learned their first segment of choreography, and played an awesome game called Fruit Salad.
The maze projects by Ms. Mallona's class were really fantastic!
Ms. Hernandez & Ms. Brown's students came back to play Ms. Reilly's 4th and Ms. Limon's 5th grades' Cardboard Arcade and agreed they really knocked it out of the park!
@PineyElem in #STEAM Lab Ms Limon's 5th & Ms. Reilly's 4th hosted @jackiebrown01 & @Lid__Hernandez 1st & K classes to their #CardboardArcade.
