Computer Science Education week is an annual program designed to inspire students to take an interest in computer science. The students at the E.E Little School participated in an Hour of Code. Each grade level had the opportunity to learn to code through games and activities on the Hour of Code website. Students and families also worked together to complete a bingo card of at home coding activities.
Digital citizenship is a theme that is revisited in every project that we do throughout the year, but each fall we spend some time reviewing how to be a good citizen in school, our community and online. Each grade level focuses on a unique activity. Grade 5 students used the knowledge that they learned from k-4 to make citizenship bookmarks for the younger students. Students must research, plan and create a bookmark using Google tools. The completed bookmarks are then displayed and voted upon. The winning bookmarks are printed and used by the Little School students each week when they visit the library.
Our #Getintobooks activity is in full swing at the Little School. Students are discovering creative ways to put themselves into a book. This experience is allowing them to discover new books in the library, use digital photography skills such as green screening and forced perspective as well as summarizing stories to share on Twitter.
