Technology and Information Access
First Grade Weather Unit
During the time that first grade was learning about weather, we used the green screen in the library to create our own weather forecasts.
Technology Integration in the Library
Storybird was a hit in both 3rd and 4th grade.
We used it to write poetry as well as to write our own original stories.
Through our library time, students in 4th and 5th grade have all had time to learn about the purpose of their portfolio, what type of work to include in a portfolio and how to personalize it.
We have used Ozobots to start to learn the basics of coding. These robots are great for working on sequencing and following directions. They are also a great tool to teach creativity and perseverance.
Flipgrid has been a great response tool for students to use. We've used it for the following:
- book recommendations
- book connections
- sharing our own stories with an author
We have reached beyond the walls of the library this year and zoomed with the following:
5th grade - Lady Bird Johnson Middle School - Net Zero
4th grade - Patrice McLaurin and Jarret Lerner
3rd grade - Jill Esbaum
2nd grade - Corey Rosen Schwartz
1st grade - Tara Lazar
Kindergarten - Josh Funk
