Week 4

This week, lower levels learned about the draw tools in Pixie. We began our class whole group where I demonstrated the tools. Students were excited to get to their own computers and learn begin exploring the tools on their own. The 3D and smudge tool were big hits!'

ISTE standards: 1(b), 6(a), 6(c)

4th & 5th Graders continued with learning Microsoft Word. We started a new document about African Elephants and students added a 2 new tools to their Word toolbox: bulleted lists and page borders. Nice!

ISTE standards: 6(a), 6(c), 6(d)

5th graders finished up their Super student green screen comic pages and began a new inference activity with the green screen. Students were given a topic such as 'you are an astronaut lost in outer space'. Students had to brainstorm what they were likely to see and what they would be doing in the situation. After brainstorming, students created the scene in Pixie and later posed in front of the green screen. They then will import their pictures into their scene. Cool!

ISTE standards: 1(a), 1(b), 2(b), 4(d), 6(a), 6(c), 6(d)
