Technology Shout-Out!

Kudos to the Second Grade team for their use of technology in the classroom to reinforce and share students' learning. Second grade classes have been using technology to "explore and create," a great way to bolster learning. Through Wixie, students created trading cards about famous Americans. Mr. Jacobs' students have created book trailers in iMovie to share their reading. You'll be impressed by our tech-savvy second graders. Are you using technology to support student learning? Let Ms. Sinclair know, and you could be in next month's Tech Shout-out! Want to try one of these ideas in your classroom? Click the button below the movie and email Ms. Sinclair!
