We hope everyone had a Happy Holiday! Also, we wanted to let you know what we have been up to in the Media Lab here at B-W. The kinders have been practicing their typing skills, constructing words using certain endings (ed, an, et, etc.), online movie making, and having fun taking pictures using Photo Booth. First graders are beginning their digital story writing lessons and are also practicing their typing skills. Some second grade classes had fun designing their own “desktops”. Others have been busy working on their “FavoriteThings” PowerPoint project. Third graders just finished their “Moon” project in Microsoft Word learning how to change fonts, colors, centering, and to italicize words. For the next two weeks, third graders will do a research project on Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Fourth graders have been very busy making and editing their “practice” films to get ready for the iVIE Film Festival. B-W’s 5th graders have been very busy in the lab working on progressive storytelling, M & M Excel project, making cover sheets for their end of year portfolio, PowerPoint Presentations, Garage Band, and practicing those typing skills.
These are just some of the lessons we work on in the lab. Please come by any time to see us in action. Here are some photos for you to enjoy!
Happy New Year,
