Learning Commons Updates April 25-29

We hope everyone had another a great week! Some important dates to remember for the year are Friday, April 29th and Friday, May 6th. April 29th (tomorrow) is the last day for student book check out, and May 6th is when all student books are due back. The learning commons will have a busy, busy May to prepare for, and we appreciate everyone returning their books on time.

Please see below for details about what each grade level worked on this week in the learning commons.

Kindergarten, 1st,and  2nd grades: All K-3rd grade classes continued to check out books from the learning commons. The Kindergarten classes started worked with  the bee bot robots to “drive” their bee bot to the correct answer when adding two numbers, and other students  worked with the book The Night I Followed My Dog. Some kindergarten classes also finished up their research on plants (AASL 1.2.2, NETS-S 1A).

3rd, 4th and 5th grades: Classes continued to check out books with their classes and use the computers to complete their research. Mrs. Sherman is also working with the Ford/Ross team to prepare them for their final writing assignment of the year, Frey Talks  (AASL 1.2.2, NETS-S 1A).
