During our last rotation our 4th and 5th graders worked in assigned pairs and groups of three to practice their coding skills. What is Dash? According to the Wonder Workshop website “Dash is a real robot, charged and ready to play out of the box. Responding to voice, navigating objects, dancing, and singing, Dash is the robot you always dreamed of having. Use the Wonder app to create new behaviors for Dash — doing more with robotics than ever possible.” Mrs. D enjoyed seeing how well students worked together and helped each other figure out the challenges using the Wonder app.
2nd and 3rd graders were introduced to the app/website Prodigy which is a free, adaptive math game for grades 1-7. It integrates math into a role-playing game using a Pokemon-style wizardry theme. … As students play, question difficulty is increased or decreased depending upon their answers and facility with the skills.
Kindergarten and 1st graders worked on logging into their assigned computer using their own login and password.
