The 3rd graders along with learning how to type, using typing.com, have also been learning how to create Wordles, using wordle.net. They type words in a Google document and have learned cool shortcuts to get their words into the program, wordle.net. To accomplish that, they have learned to use Command-A, Command-C and Command-V. The fun of course is in the creation of the wordle, and being able to change the font, layout and colors. So far we have practiced using MA state symbols, our own characteristics and traits, and spelling words! Here are some examples.

The 1st graders have been hard at work in their classrooms discovering information about their family's heritage. They have colored flags and have been giving presentations in the classroom. In technology class, we used the Pic Collage app to show off their wonderfully colored flags, their picture, and their family heritage. Please enjoy these fun Adobe Spark videos.
