Grades 4-8 students created their own animated films using the Toontastic app on the iPad. They got to choose the characters and setting for each scene, then just move the pieces around like they were playing with action figures, and even provide their own dialogue as the iPad records it all. They were also able to add a musical score. This free app didn't just allow kids to make their own cartoons, it also taught them the fundamentals of storytelling.
We are learning all about CODING!
Our students from Grades 1-8 learned all about Coding. They were introduced to the world of Computer Science basics in a format that's fun and accessible, even to our youngest learners. Some skills developed and mastered in the course of this lesson are:
*Loops and Events
*Problem solving and perseverance techniques
*Meaningful collaboration with others
At the end of this course, students will be able to create interactive games or stories they can share with anyone. The lessons align to CSTA Computer Science and ISTE standards, and reinforce concepts and skills taught in other subject areas by integrating national Math, Language Arts and Science standards.
In Computer class, LEARNING is so much FUN!
Students applied what they learned about Internet Safety in a variety of creative ways.
Grades 4-6 created informative and eye-catching Internet Safety flyers using MS PowerPoint.
Grades 7-8 wrote their own original plays on the Dangers and Prevention of Cyber Bullying, Social Networking, and Identity Theft online.
They did such great jobs and I am so proud of them! More importantly, they are now aware of the importance of Digital Citizenship and Internet Safety.
We learned all about INTERNET SAFETY. It is very important that we know the Do's and Don'ts of using the internet.
In this digital age where we do almost everything online, we also need to be aware of the great risk we can put our kids in, even in the safe confines of our home. Here are some sites you can go on to learn more about internet safety.
