2ND Grade Today:
Welcome back to school and Happy New year!! We worked hard today with coding via robots and online block coding. We also began our research project online through Google Doc and Classroom. See below of what we worked on in class today.
Warm up and Discussion:
Tell me a story about your Christmas Vacation! Was it as crazy as the movie,
"Christmas Vacation" or was it a calm gathering? How would your story go and where would it start? Would it start from school or at home or on the road? Be creative with your "Christmas Vacation Story by YOU!"
FIELD TRIP ON 2/26: WILL BE WORKING A LITTLE BIT WITH OUR PROJECT FOR GAM ALONG WITH WRITING CODE IN BLOCKLY, AND RESEARCHING/WRITING ABOUT THE MUSEUM VISIT.
12:30– Warm up/Discussion/Exploratory Time
- Exploratory time Robotic Centers: Colby Mouse and KuBO
-work on Blockly coding through Brainpop. Following the steps to move the robot through a maze to the final destination. Game becomes a little more challenging as each level is passed. This learning game is similar to Scratch but it forces the programmer to make difficult decisions with only so many movements allowed. Looping, repeats and many steps are the focus of this learning module.
2:00 Work on research project. I am giving you time to work on it in class, YOU SHOULD HAVE AN OUTLINE FIRST! INTRO, 3-5 PARAGRAPHS THAT WILL TALK ABOUT YOUR SUBJECT, CONCLUSION. INTRO & CONCLUSION SHOULD COLLABORATE. INTRO SHOULD DISCUSSION YOUR PROBLEM; CONCLUSION SHOULD TALK ABOUT HOW YOU SOLVED THE PROBLEM WITHIN YOUR 3-5 PARAGRAPHS. PLEASE DO NOT START WRITING YOUR PAPER WITHOUT THE OUTLINE.
10:20 GOOGLE CLASSROOM: Express what you accomplished today under the General “streaming” area that I started.
