Hour of Code, Digiteen, Typing, Diamond Poems, Moon Project, ABCMouse, and Christmas games are just a FEW things we did in the Lab! Read about more:
Students have been playing games, puzzles, and listening to songs. They are also feeding and playing with their animals, adding things to their room, and playing with their hamsters. There is so much to do!
Grade 1-5 Coding!
The students really advanced, moving at their own pace. They also helped each other! They like the ease of the lessons on www.code.org.
Grade 2 Mystery Skype!
The 2nd graders joined me at a special time to do a mystery skype with a class of 6th graders from Colorado. Our 2nd graders discovered the state first!

The students continued to work on their Diamonte (Diamond) projects. They also worked on typing skills using Typing Club (www.typingclub.com)
Grade 7 Digiteen Project
The students continued to work on their assignments for the Digiteen Project. For the final project, students can use PowToon or Google Slides. They are doing a nice job on their projects!
