Second graders are starting the year learning how to be responsible digital citizens. They understand the difference between public and private information, including personal information that they should never give out. They have also been discussing what makes a good password. They have school-based email accounts and have learned how to use those accounts safely.
Second grade lessons are continuing to engage students. The "Pulleys and Simple Machines" unit has really taken off, using videos from Youtube to demonstrate how these things work. Youtube is also being used for phonics and helpful sing-alongs. The classroom sets of computers are used daily, especially for individualized reading, using sites such as Raz-Kids, Bookflix, and Tumblebooks. Virtual math manipulatives are extremely helpful during Math In Focus lessons. The Spanish teachers have been using the computers for an animal research unit.
First grade continues to use interactive Mimio lessons. Student engagement is high, especially during math lessons. The virtual math manipulatives are especially useful and hands-on.
