Third Grade


Students learned the computer lab rules and reviewed parts of the computer on the first day of computer lab.

Computer Coding –  Students started computer coding on in December and worked at their own pace through the 20-hour coding Course D during computer lab. They learned to assembled a series of blockly commands into a simple program to move characters through a maze, perform a series of tasks, or draw geometric designs and pictures. Students also participated in the Hour of Code, a worldwide coding event organized by (See Classroom Links below). In early spring, students used different colored markers on paper to code instructions for Ozobots (tiny robots) to move along paths and complete challenges.

Digital Portfolios - Students created digital portfolios in Google Slides. As they complete various projects (Native American Days activity, I Have a Dream Poem, etc.), they will import them into Google Slides and comment on the project, what software/website was used to create it, what they learned, and what they thought about the project. At the end of the year, they will be able to share their work with their families.
