Ms. Andrea Love Art and Gifted Educator
. Today was an eventful learning day in TAG! We started off very excited to write about what Christmas means to them and they requested to write about what the "Gingerbread man/girl" was that they take home and write about.
Students then created their own "Fuzz" icon on paper, and recreated the one they had already created on Kodable.com. I uploaded photos of their work on Class Dojo. Students made the connection that we must design a code within the program for the computer to design how exactly we want an icon to look like. Students noticed that their paper version and Kodable version were quite different. Kodable had certain preset layouts that the student had to choose from unlike their paper designs.
We ventured into two new robots, a MakerBot named, Rocky, and a Robot Mouse Maze. There are a couple of videos on Class Dojo of them experimenting with the two new items.
Students were invited to a recess around 2pm and then returned to class at 2:25. They were able to learn about ocean animals on the Virtual Reality and manipulate the Cubeletts for the last 10 minutes of class.
I hope that you and your family have a wonderful break and I wish you a Merry Christmas!
