1st Grade Classes using wireless Active Slates and flipcharts

Our first grade classes have been working on telling time.  Ms. Manack's students used the wireless Active Slates to write the correct time on the flipchart,  as well move the clock hands to the correct time, and then to reveal the correct answers.  The kids loved it!!!!

Learning to code through games

video
In our NGDC class at Forest North our kids are learning the basic thought process for coding using a game called Kodable.  Our 1-5th graders have been playing the game and advancing at their own pace.  It has been great seeing the student’s problem solve issues and work together to help each other get past difficult levels.
