What We Learned Today...September 6th

Working on our Quizizz this afternoon!

ELA: This morning we started out our morning a special Sorting Ceremony where students were sorted into their proper Hogwarts Houses. These teams will now work together to earn points for their houses through displaying positive behaviour in our classroom and school. Points can also be deducted from their houses for displaying inappropriate behaviour , but I don't believe that will be a problem with our class!

ELA Cont. We used this period today to go through the Connected Educator project that our classroom was granted this year. Essentially each student will have their very own assigned laptop for the entire year that they will be able to use at school. More information about this project will be going home next week. If you would like a peak at the procedures we went through as a class feel free to check out our One to One Device Procedures.

Quizizz Activities: After we got the hang of our new devices the students participated in two online quiz games to review the procedures from our class as well as a quiz that helped them get to know their classmates a little better.

Breakout EDU: After lunch the students worked together to solve our first Breakout EDU. Essentially a Breakout EDU is an activity that teaches students teamwork, problem solving and critical thinking through the completion of numerous problems and puzzles. (Very similar to the popular "escape the room" type games).  The students did an awesome job and I can't wait for them to participate in their next one!
