Students in Mrs. Avery's class painted and chose the items to represent each letter! LED light strips line the back and can be turned on and off with a switch.
Due to an assembly in the media center this Friday, 1st and 4th grade rotations moved to the art room.
1st graders drew color codes for the Ozobot to read. The tornado and zigzag codes were a popular move!
A group of 4th graders who already had Ozobot experience, used their knowledge of Ozo codes to create a path for their Ozobot to visit the regions of California.
4th graders in Mrs. Gardner's class wrote programs to get their Ozobot through the course. It was challenging! The Ozobots didn't always roll straight. They had to make adjustments to their code to compensate.

Creating Ozobot races, programming Dash to spell vocabulary words, making fortune tellers to practice using a thesaurus, and finishing our STEAM letters ... it was a busy Wednesday in the Media Center!

2nd Graders filled their footprint with information that is OK to share in a multi-player game where they can communicate with other kids. It's OK to share hobbies and favorites, but never your full name, address, school name, and birthday! Do not leave a "digital trail" for a stranger to find you.
5th graders used Google Slides to show what is already in their Digital Footprint. What websites do they visit frequently? Do they have a username or screen name that protects their identity? Are they using the Internet to communicate respectfully?
We had another busy week in the media center! Mrs. Gardner's class came in for more coding with Ozobots and Dash and Dot. 3rd-5th graders began typing practice. 1st graders practiced internet safety by being aware of advertisements on ABCya. 4th graders explored Snap Circuits and even turned the Flying Saucer into a spinning art disc. We introduced a mosaic coloring station in the library too!
Check out the spin art HERE!
It's been a busy week in the media center! Mrs. Gardner's class came in for some explorations in coding. Some kids worked on their Code.org curriculum, some learned to use color codes with the Ozobots, and others helped us learn how to use our new Dash and Dot robots! During rotations, a few students in Mrs. Avery's class helped paint our new STEAM letters for our Makerspace. We also tested our new puzzle center during library time and it was a huge hit! Mrs. Zasadny created a LEGO build project where kids had to put the Dewey Decimal numbers in order ... love the creative ways they chose to build.
