We have had a great first week! Here are our fifth graders hard at work on brainstorming what our classroom rules should be this year. They also had fun completing a scavenger hunt about their classmates. Next week, we start switching for all classes as we start our regular routine.

We Did Some Coding in Library Today

Snoopy Squad did some coding with Sphero robots and the Lightning Labs app on our I-pads.  Each student on the team took a turn writing the code to make the Sphero robot move, light up a certain color , stop and speak. In the future we may be coding to make the Sphero robot navigate some jumps.

Mystery Skype to Argentina

Memorial's Geography Club had their first Mystery Skype. We got to play Mystery Skype with Ms. Wilner's class in Buenos Aires, Argentina. Her students did an excellent job with their English.  After a few quick questions about if we were from Europe, they quickly figured out we were Americans but had a harder time pin-pointing the state. Our team guessed their city and their team guessed our state. Great job by our 4th and 5th graders. (We noticed that their students were all wearing uniforms.)
