We're off to a great start!
Technology grades K-8
So far, we have explored educational games on our iPads, updated and installed 1:1 Chromebooks for grades 2 through 8, and completed our online assessments. Grade 7 is working on an electronics "dissection" project where we open up some decommissioned hardware and examine its parts. Grades 6 & 7 are starting their digital marketing projects.
Science grade 5
The students are working hard learning about matter! We have completed Unit 1, as well as several labs. Next up - forces!
For my classes, you will need only the 4 Ps:
- Pencil (or pen)
- PPE - Masks are required during all classes
- Positive attitude!
In Technology, all students will be expected to participate and try their best. The goal of this subject is to learn how to use technology tools to become better students. We will begin the year reinforcing Google Classroom skills and take it from there.
In Science, we will be covering topics ranging from matter and physical science to Earth and the solar system. Our most important goal for 5th grade is to start truly thinking like a scientist!
Students will remain in their homerooms and I will come to them. There will be very limited use of the computer lab, as all students will be working on their own dedicated Chromebook or iPad. We will try our best to get to the Science lab as safety guidelines evolve.
All students will be invted to join my Google Classrooms. This is where they will find all of their meeting links, assignments, and enrichment.
