Thursday and Friday

Please make sure that your child has been working in Codehs for today and tomorrow.

6th grade – They need to have completed Tracy’s World and Moving Tracy Efficiently – Please have them log in and you actually can see it complete.

8th grade – They need to have completed Introduction to Mobile Apps and Components and the Style Sheet.  – Please have them log in and you actually can see it complete.

Again: (All grade levels, All students)
Please make sure that you log into your child’s OneNote notebook to actually see that they have pasted the link to their game.  I still have quite a few students that have not done it.

7th grade is not doing Codehs, but project Yellow Light.  It is due this Friday to be uploaded to their OneNote notebooks.  Please have them physically show you the work in their notebooks.

Week of March 23, 2020

I know that Bloomz is having a hard time loading because of the amount of traffic, the students can still complete their work because it is in their OneNote notebook.
—————————————————————

 Monday – Wednesday
All grade levels need to be completing their games for the Games for Change Competition that is due on March 28th.  I went through the students OneNote notebooks and there are quite a few students that have not been working on their games, nor have they put their links in the notebook.

If they are having a hard time with Scratch, I sent a Bloomz about switching over to Bloxels as long as their partner agrees.  Also, if they have decided to not work with a partner because of lack of communication, they need to let me know asap.

Thursday – Friday
1st and 2nd periods – Codehs – Moving Tracy Efficiently.  If they did not do Tracy’s World, they should do that as well.

4th and 5th periods – Codehs – Last week you were supposed to complete, Intro to Mobile Apps and Components and the Stylesheets – Intro to Components and Introduction to the stylesheet API.  I graded those assignments and made comments where needed.
This Thursday and Friday you need to complete in Codehs – Styling View Components, Styling Text Components, Challenge Score Keeper 1 and the Components and Stylesheet Quiz.
6th and 7th periods – Project Yellow Light.  I gave 4 great examples of videos here on Bloomz.  They need to be as creative as possible.  Video :10 – :25 seconds only and radio :25 seconds only.  You can upload the video and radio to the Project Yellow Light page In your OneNote notebook.  You should do that asap so that I can give you feedback.

I have been looking at the work that I assign for the week and I have a lot of students that are not working.  Even though we are not putting the grades in to Synergy, these grades will be used upon our return to school.  Better to get it done now:-)

Friday, I will do the students of the week again!

————————————————————–
 If your child needs a break from work, hopefully after they completed my assignments, they can dabble in robotics programming with Coderz.  All they need to do is click on the link below:

This weeks work posted in One Note

Parents if you have not signed up for Bloomz or if yours is not working, please use that instead of the blog.  It is easy for you to communicate with me through Bloomz.  The kids can even use the codes to create their own accounts for their phones.  I have the handouts below for each class in English and in Spanish.  I urge you to sign up for Bloomz Asap.:-)

I already told the students that they need to check their OneNote daily.  We have the Game for Change games due March 28.  Your child may be working with a partner and I told them that they still need to work together or split now so that each of them have time to build a game.  Parents have them open up their OneNote Notebooks and look for 3/16 – 20/2020.  All they have to do is make sure that the work is put in the OneNote or Codehs – this depends on their assignments.

Have them email me if they have any questions about what to do, but they should know because we have been doing this since the beginning of the year:-)  

Since they will not be at school to have other students playtest their games, please as parents, guardians and even siblings playtest their games and give them feedback. If they have problems in Scratch, have them search YouTube for solutions or talk to one of their friends.

Game expectations:
You should have a workable game.  Make sure that you have something in the game that makes it stand out for the competition.  It should not be bland or boring.
