All About Sci-Tech
CO-VID 19 Learning Update:
Hello everyone! Just wanted to take a moment to explain a few ways of getting assignments from me. Remember it is either the packets OR online. You do not have to do both. 2nd-4th grade it is the same assignments online as in the packets.
Kinder: everyone should have packets. If you do not, just message me and I will send a link for continued science work.
1st grade: I sent those of you that the homeroom teachers indicated were doing online work a message on dojo. Those students will do the assignments listed in science4us.com. If you picked up the packets, the science work is included in that.
2nd-4th grade: I have google classrooms set up for each grade level. They are labeled with the grade level and then distant learning. For example 2nd grade distant learning. There are assignments posted already for the week. 4th grade has access to science on Education Galaxy as an optional tool as well. If you have a packet and do not want to do it online that is 100% okay.
Gifted and Talented students: There is a google classroom that you have been invited to (if you are not already in it) that has OPTIONAL assignments. This is the continuation of the projects we were working on in class.
**Remember when logging into google classroom, you must use the moody student email address. firstname.lastname@example.org. The password is initials followed by lunch number.
If anyone has any questions, do not hestitate to reach out to me on messenger, by email, or phone!
This year the students in grades K-2 will come to Science and Technology during their specials rotation. Third and fourth grade will rotate during Tutorials at the end of the day.
In Science, the students will be expected to learn a variety of different standards in a fun and meaningful way. They will experience what it is like to be a Scientist by using the Scientific Method process. The class will be engaging and hands-on while providing enriching academic opportunities for the students.
In Technology, the students will begin to type properly on a keyboard and master different computer programs such as google slides and google docs. They will also learn digital citizenship, internet safety and security, research, and information literacy.
Both of these classes blended together will help foster creativity, critical thinking, collaboration, and problem solving skills needed in the 21st century.
