After our Hour of Code sessions with students it is great to hear how many of them are continuing to explore computer coding and program creation. Our final week of classes before Christmas break has found students writing Christmas poems using a Poem Generator, copying and pasting their poems into Word and adding clipart. Final products have been turning out great and Mrs. D hopes to create a Flipbook over vacation highlighting those poems.
Primary students have been creating Gingerbread Houses and Christmas Trees on ABCya and printing them to share with their families while 2nd and 3rd graders wrote holiday letters to either parents or Santa.
Our first year of having a full size Christmas tree has turned out great with many students of all ages creating paper ornaments that share their favorite book title on them. Thanks everyone for the wonderful decorations!
Finally students who check out books this week have been given the opportunity to check out one additional library book to read over the long winter break! Feel free to visit our Christmas Around the World link under Student Websites over the holidays to see fun websites that explore all of the holidays that are celebrated this time of year.
