5th Grade One-to-One Laptops

The first week of January our fifth graders embarked on their exciting journey of using their personal laptops as aids to improve their education.  They started by using their laptops daily in the classroom to easily access their textbooks and interactive materials online.  We have livened up math by having the students use their interactive materials to help them with the struggles of adding and subtracting fractions. They are able to watch videos that go along with their Scholastic News to enrich their reading.

The fifth-grade students have begun using their personal laptops to aid in doing their state report projects.  This is a major part of fifth grade and will take them about three months to complete.  They are being challenged to use Google Slides and Google Docs to improve their reports and presentations.   They recently made a state collage using Google Slides.  They will put this collage on the covers of their state report binders with pictures of important state features.

The students are enthusiastic and eager to be able learn and grow in new and exciting ways.
