Snowman Exchange

Build a snowman, type a description, and see if a student from another class can re-create your snowman based upon the description you wrote. First, build your snowman using the Virtual Snowman Builder. You can choose any of the parts except for extras. Give your snowman a name and include your own name underneath. Print a copy.

Next, use Stationary Studio to type your description. Use the snowman template under Holidays & Seasons. Have a teacher check, save, then print.

Once finished you will exchange your snowman with a student from another class and see how accurately he/she can re-create it.

Below is a sample description:

Type to Learn jr.

You are going to begin the first steps with learning to type by using Type to Learn jr. After starting the program, the Sunbuddies will guide you through logging in. Once you’re at the home screen, click the learning center on the top floor to get started. Tiny will give you a hint about correct posture and then you’ll practice lowercase letters first. After 15 minutes in the learning center, you can try one of the games on the second floor. Have fun!

Makerspace Stations (K-3)

A makerspace is an area where you can design, build, and play using materials. The library has been set up as a makerspace this week to give you the opportunity to think like an engineer and try out some new materials that were purchased. There are five stations set up for you to explore. Some of the new materials you’ll use are the ProBot and Kibo robots. Have fun!

Animal Talk

Present your animal research using the ChatterPix Kids app. After you finish finding facts, write a script from the perspective of the animal. Practice reading the script, making sure it can be read in 30 seconds or less. Then, search for an image of the animal on the iPad. The image needs to be front-facing with a closed mouth. Next, import the image into the app, add the mouth, and record.
