K-1, 4-5: Technology Focus- Keyboarding Skills

Kindergarten and first grade students practiced finding the letters on the computer keyboard and were introduced to the home row.

Fourth and fifth graders were reminded of the home row and found their average (words per minute + accuracy) while playing NitroType.  We then set a goal to work towards for next time.

5th Grade – Coding- Adding Events

Our fifth grade students wrapped up their coding unit by creating events in the game Flappy Bird.  The students have come a long way since their first experience with writing code back in September.  I am proud of their “can do” attitudes!!

4th Grade – Could a Volcano Pop Up in Your Backyard?

The fourth grade students participated in a mystery science lesson to answer the question:  Could a volcano pop up in your backyard?  They used Google Maps to plot the locations of volcanoes around the world and then filled out a Google Form that asked them questions to reflect on the lesson.  They discovered that volcanoes tend to follow patterns and it is unlikely that one would pop up in Hudsonville.

First Grade – Find my camouflaged animal!

Our first grade students were given an animal picture and asked to talk with a partner about how this animal could use camouflage to hide from predators.  They were then given a piece of drawing paper and asked to draw a habitat, and glue their animal in that habitat so that it could hide.  Students were able to call on a volunteer to come up and find the animal that was hiding.  We have some amazing artists!
