The first quarter is almost over, and we sure have done a lot of great work!
Sixth-graders have just completed their Fun Fact Cards in Google Docs, look for some of those to be posted here soon. We will be printing, laminating, and placing our Fact Cards in the library soon! Great work, sixth grade!
Seventh-graders are in the final stretch of a biography project, also in Google Docs. In a matter of weeks, every seventh-grade student will have a media-rich e-book that they can show their friends and family. They have worked extremely hard in compressed time, and the results are fantastic!
Eighth-graders have started working on their portfolio websites, and they look pretty great so far! We will periodically update these websites throughout the year. Eight-grade has also had some fun learning how to edit images with Pixelmator, a powerful image editing app for iPads that is similar to Photoshop. We have created some great looking business cards and recently learned how to superimpose one image over another, or “How to go on a Vacation Anywhere Using Image Editing Software.” We have had some very creative submissions so far!
Next quarter, we will take a dive into programming and see what else we can create. Thanks for checking in!
