Students will learn about Community Helpers. I will present a Power Point presentation about the different types of community helpers then students will given a chance to watch videos and play games that relate to community helpers and what their roles are.
1st and 2nd graders will get caught up on Magic School Bus lesson (Habitat) and practicing logging in with usernames and passwords. 3rd graders will take pre-test for Digital Citizenship. Lessons will continue to follow that relate to digital citizenship.
Monday students will be introduced to using ABC order, Tuesday students will learn about germs after reading the Magic School Bus book and watching video clip that goes along with it. Wednesday students will be provided with their Student I.D. numbers and will get practice logging onto the computers and practicing using the mouse using the link provided below.
This week classes that have not been introduced to ABC order lesson and activity will get a chance to practice this week. We are continuing practice with logging in on our own onto the computers. Students will be introduced to the idea of HEAT and how it works, this will followed up by reinforcing the idea with the Magic School Bus.
Students are learning to login with their student I.D numbers and birthdays as their passwords. Logging on is a work and progress and understandable, especially with the first and second grade. I have presented how to alphabetize a list of words. The words are scrambled and fit into a group, for example, ANIMALS, students are to identify where the word belongs and glue their words in ABC order. The second and third graders were given a more challenging list than the first graders to accommodate to their academic/grade levels.
This week I am catching up all my classes to whatever they have missed. Due to Labor Day and not meeting some classes until this week because of half days and scheduling in building my classes are doing different things.
This week: Monday students met me for the first time and I did an Intro to Me, Tuesday students created their own bookmark that I will laminate and return to teachers, and Wednesday students will start to learn how to log onto their computers with their own username and passwords, followed by practicing Language on Starfall. Some of the younger ones may struggle logging on but I will help them if they cannot do it by themselves yet.
I am Whitmore Bolles today. Students will create their own creative bookmark that I will later laminate and pass back to teachers so the students may use them all year in their classrooms. I will provide student examples on a Powerpoint, colored pencils and crayons will also be provided so students can have fun with their designs!
