Ms. Andrea Love Art and Gifted Educator
Today in TAG, we wrote about our experience while at our Morenet Mill field trip and we discussed how we could use those devices to learn coding in our Socratic Circle. Students expressed ideas of how we could incorporate more patterns, maps, control directions of robots, adding more sounds, lights and movement, connecting other blocks to contribute to the other blocks and having virtual reality to explore where most can't go, such as a volcano. Students contributed valuable ideas to the discussion and Ms. Love is documenting those ideas to help us have those devices in the classroom.
Students had there self-expression time to freely explore building, designing or creating.
We ventured back into our logging in to Google Classroom and the Everfi Digital Citizenship program. Several Students were stuck on the post testing for Choosing a computer. Frustration set on as they tried to answer the questions so they could pass and go forward to the next simulation, but they were able to get through and learn from the missed question and move forward. Most of the Students are on the next simulation about:Wireless Communication and how to be responsible with cell phones and how to pick a cell phone plan, the dangers of cell phones and driving and how to be a helpful passenger of those driving and texting.
We had a productive day in TAG today and earned a letter, "F" toward our compliment party. Once we have the word, "Gifted" on the board, we will decide on our award party.
Have a wonderful rest of the week!
