Students in 1st and 2nd grade have been in to learn about internet safety.We reviewed the three rules to stay safe while online. The rules are:
- Ask for permission before you get on the internet.
- Only chat with people you know.
- Stay on sites that are just right for you.
We also discussed how to decide if a site was just right for you. Students determined if a site was green, yellow, or red based on the content of the site.
All students will have gone through orientation by Monday. Students in grades 3-5 were reminded of the learning commons procedures by scanning qr codes and watching videos. I think they liked this better than just sitting and looking at another power point.
We are so excited for students to start using the Learning Commons next week! Here is just a preview, but we have close to 100 new books for checkout!
Cobb County Schools, Cobb County Public Library, and Scholastic have partnered again for our summer reading. Check out this site for more information.
In addition, students can access ebooks through the Cobb Digital Library and Myon. The username for both websites is your student’s lunch number and the password for both is read.
Second grade is learning how to use the app Puppet EDU to illustrate the butterfly life cycle.

Kindergarten is learning about the parts of the plant. This student drew the apple tree and told me where the roots, stem, and leaves were.
First grade students are learning how to classify animals. We are using the app called Classify It to reinforce the concept. This a free app you can download at home!
Students in the younger grades will read a St. Patrick’s Day book and discuss the story elements. Older grade students will explore this website and complete a web quest to answer questions about St. Patrick.
