TAG 6th Grade:
We are on an amazing path towards digital citizenship in the TAG classroom! The students are engaged and seem to enjoy the online simulation of the Everfi and Google Classroom curriculum. I am able to watch their progress while they are working and see their pre and post results of how well they comprehended the material. It is amazing how much more the students are understanding the importance of choosing a computer, wireless communication, virtual world, internet resources/credibility,and creating multi-media products. They will be beginning future modules of digital relationships and respect, and the future of technology and you.
Students are writing at the beginning of class in their composition books from a prompt on the board. We discuss their writing thoughts afterwards or at the end of class. This is their warm-up./thinker writing that will look like journal writing in the future.
After they work on the Everfi curriculum, students write about the daily question within the Google Classroom. All of their time, effort and work will be entered in the SiS gradebook weekly.
Next week, Tuesday, we will be on our field trip to Morent. Please pack a sack lunch. Students will eat their lunch outside of Morenet (outside mall next to Jazz restaurant) for 30 minutes). We will finish up our hands on technology with Morenet and leave by 1:15. We need to be back on the school grounds for dismissal at a safe time period to avoid traffic.
IF you have any questions, please feel free to message me on Dojo, Text me on my cell...573.982.9744, or email me... firstname.lastname@example.org
I will be positing pictures of the students working along with the field trip on Class Dojo.
Thank you for being involved in the TAG classroom,
TAG 5th Grade:
Welcome to a new week of school! The TAG students today came in and started on the Warm up Thinker, "What it means to be Gifted." We shared our individual thoughts to the class. We discussed our compliment/party day options and decided to use the word "TALENTED" to earn our fun day in TAG since I am unable to do a pizza party this year. Student's will decide if they are have a dance party, movie day, snack day, etc. This "party" time will only be for an hour of the class time. Students received 15 minutes of free-self explore time after we discussed our warm-up.
We began signing into our new Google Classroom which takes us to our new digital citizenship program through EVERFI. This program will help students make good decisions for themselves and their friends when it comes to computers, phones, online texting and communication. Students reflected what they learned on Google Classroom at the end of the class period.
Reminder of the field trip next week. We meet next Tuesday at the DB building out front at 7:45, after bus drop off. Please be prompt as we are on a tight schedule. Please bring a sack lunch, we will eat outside the building for 30 mins at 11:00 and return to our fun with Morenet at 11:30. We will leave around 1:15, to return to DB in time for bus departure.
Thank you for being a part of the TAG program, I look forward to a wonderful year with your students.
