This week

We had a great week this week.  Students are doing a great job on some end of quarter assessments.  They also started learning how to do some computer coding.  Throughout the week students have been researching different countries and how they celebrate Christmas.  Once there research is complete they will begin a presentation on their iPads.  They will get to share their presentations next week.  The video below is a short movie showing the Marshmallow Challenge that we completed today.  Students learned a lot about never giving up even when you fail the first time and working as a team.
