The lab has been so busy this week, that I did not get a lot of pictures, but wanted to share what has been going on. 4th graders have been doing keyboarding drills, and learning how to use text boxes to label parts of a diagram. They also continue to do coding exercises.
One group of 5th graders worked on programming projects in Scratch, but another group learned about pixel resolution, learned to use graphic filters and other tools to modify graphics.
6th graders from Trish’s class are learning to code in Python using codehs.com.
Turns out that I went off plan Wednesday morning. Could have been spring fever, or that I was running a fever, but I thought it was time for some creative electronics, so I got out the littleBits Challenge Cards, and something magical happened.
Just wanted to let you know that the plan for the week includes Spring Acrostics and coding exercises. Not all students have finalized their Shapes iMovies, but this post’s video features three of them. Our 4th graders are very proud of their creations
