Merry Christmas from Mrs. Barlow’s Class!
Mrs. Barlow’s class created pumpkins on the website ABCya.com. Once they made their pumpkin, each student wrote a story about their pumpkin.
Mrs. Barlow’s 2nd graders discussed with a partner where a leprechaun might be if he were hiding in the school. Next they worked in small groups to plan how they could catch a leprechaun. (You can see their planning page here.) Finally, these using the Explain Everything app to make a movie explaining their plan. Enjoy their work!
Mrs. Barlow’s students recently participated in the worldwide Hour of Code event to celebrate Computer Science Education week. (Click the embeded links to learn more about these events.) When students work on coding, they are learning to collaborate with others, developing critical thinking and problem solving skills, learning how computers and programming works and having fun! Some of the coding apps we use are:
Enjoy the pictures of them working!
Mrs. Barlow’s class listened to the book, The Soldiers’ Night Before Christmas.
Next they made Christmas cards using this card maker from abcya.com. Before making them, we discussed how our military serves our country every day of the year, even on holidays. Students were asked to keep our service men and women in mind as they created their cards. Enjoy their work below!
Merry Christmas to our service men and women! Thank you for your dedication to our country!
