Kahoot-it, Fan and Pick and Check out our Life-Sized Coordinate Grid!¡Kahoo-it, Abanica y Escoge, y Vea Nuestra Cuadricula Tamaño Normal!

img_9173Students in Mr. Park’s class checked their understanding of plate techtonics today using Kahoot! Kahoot is a fun and engaging game created by the teacher and played on a computer device. Students answer questions in real-time and compete with each other or as in Mr. Park’s class today – compete in teams!

The students love the competition as they are asked and answer questions in real-time, checking their understanding of newly learned content. 

In Mr. Yenney’s class, students checked their learning as they worked in alternating pairs using the discussion strategy, “Fan and Pick.” I was excited to be invited to play and thrilled that I remembered a bit of 7th grade Science! 🙂

img_3304Have you noticed our new addition?  We now have a life-sized coordinate grid between the commons and the Healthy Start building!  As a former math coach and lover of math, I was thrilled to be able to provide this opportunity for our students and teachers to graph outside! Our PE classes have started to use it, as well! I look forward to witnessing the learning creativity it may inspire! fullsizerender-13

 

¡La clase del Sr. Park repaso su entendimiento sobre placas tectónicas usando Kahoot!  Kahoot es un juego atractivo y divertido creado por el maestro el cual se juega en la computadora.  Los estudiantes contestan preguntas en tiempo real y compiten entre ellos o como en la clase del Sr. Park compitieron en equipos!

A los estudiantes les gustan las competencias de preguntas y respuestas en tiempo real, y comprobar su aprendizaje del contenido.

En la clase del Sr. Yenny, los estudiantes repasaron su aprendizaje al trabajar y alternar en grupos empleando la estrategia de discusión, “Abanica y Escoge.” ¡Yo estuve emocionada por ser invitada a jugar y alegre de recordar un poco de ciencia del 7 grado:)!

resized_20161205_113904Han notado nuestra nueva adición?  Ahora tenemos una cuadricula coordinadora tamaño natural entre el área del almuerzo y el edificio de Healthy Start! Como antigua educadora y amante de las matemáticas, estoy emocionada de proveer la oportunidad para los estudiantes y maestros de poder usar la cuadricula afuera de los salones.  Nuestros maestros de educación física también comenzaron a usarla.  Espero ver con anticipación la creatividad que inspirara!
