pictured above are your creative inventive students. Using marshmallows and pretzel sticks we welcomed winter by creating delicious snowmen! Some other creations included a dog, and a marshmallow over a fire.
We are thankful for your donations to our class.
Some families donate time by coming into our classes to volunteer. Others donate their time at home by doing cutting and other special projects for the class. For example, some families build blocks that students use in free time centers! Some families cut out sight word cards and put them on rings for us! Also some people have cut out centers, and paperwork that Ms. Palmer can give to students.
Some tangible donations we have received and are extremely grateful for are snack and "stuff" donations. Some families have donated beads that students use when they get on pink (Have an Outstanding Day). Some families have donated expo markers and other supplies to the classroom.
Again our classroom only runs from the love of the community. Our community is the teachers, paraprofessionals, parents and students who all put out 100% each day! Our students enter school happy and leave the day happy, all due to wonderful positive at home and school support.
Computer Science Education Week (CSEdWeek) is an annual program dedicated to showing K-12 students the importance of computer science education. CSEdWeek is held in recognition of the birthday of computing pioneer Admiral Grace Murray Hopper (December 9, 1906).
This is what Ms. Davis said students are working on in Technology class on Tuesdays!
“For Computer Science Education Week, all classes are participating in Hour of Code activities, but we will be stretching it out for the entire month of December. In Kindergarten, these are the apps/websites we are using: Code Spark Academy - https://thefoos.com/hour-of-code We actually use the app and the students to track their progress. Last week completed the Donut Detective challenge. This week we will be working on the Snoopy Snow Brawl. Kodable - https://game.kodable.com. We will use this later in the month. Tynker - https://www.tynker.com/hour-of-code. “
Below are resources to help students learn about coding, computer science, and technology! I also have fun online games we wouldn’t have without computers, computer science, technology! Enjoy!
Also I have collected all these online websites on my blog so students can play appreciate the technology that goes into creating online games.
Extra! Extra! Read all about K!
