Ms. Andrea Love Art and Gifted Educator
1st Grade today begin their day learning about "trash to treasure."
Writing prompt, write a story about what trash to treasure means to you and if you have ever seen someone change something old into something new or if you were ever given something that someone no longer wanted.
We played a card game called "spoons." We learned that we are getting others "trash" that may help us with the winning outcome. The game is fast pace and it was a challenge to locate what we needed to win a complete match of four. Have your student play the game with you. All you need is a deck of cards and five spoons or forks or straws.
After our game, students solved challenges in a group coding the mouse and programming the circuits. Working as a team is not always easy and we are learning to work together instead of alone to solve problems.
The last 30 minutes of class, students continued to another level on Tyker.com. Students are quizzed at the end of the level about what they learned.
It was a great day today and I look forward to next week.
Have a wonderful day,
Boonville Talented and Gifted Program
