Students have been working hard to learn how to code their own ping pong game by pair programming. One student is the driver (i.e. the coder) and one student is the navigator (i.e. makes suggestions). Students will change roles throughout their coding time and work together.
We have also been having success with students taking on leadership roles and helping other groups in the class. Check out some of our games below:
What is the trickiest thing you found when coding your game?
We have been learning all about ways we can stay cool in situations during our No Putdowns program. Miss Granger came up with this fun way to have us create our own special “recipe” of ways that work for each of us to stay cool. Check them out in the gallery below!
We are going skating every Thursday this month! During this time we have had some excellent hockey and figure skate teachers from our class and Mrs. Sharpe’s help to lead stations so that we can learn some skating skills such as stopping, skating backwards, crossovers, balancing, jumping, and how to fall safely and get up.
Here are the links to videos we watched on stopping.
We were back to school this week and started learning about something new in math – time! We talked about the differences between digital and analog clocks and discovered how handy it is counting by 5’s.
Check out this fun song about the 5 times tables. We will be learning more about multiplication soon!
