Exciting news in Kindergarten!

Miss Torano’s class is participating in a country wide Gingerbread Exchange! The students decorated gingerbread people to send out to schools all over the country, and the class has started getting other gingerbread people back. Miss Torano’s class is marking off where they are coming from on a class map so they can see how far the gingerbread people have traveled. They are learning about distance, mail, and spreading kindness from this holiday season activity. Keep checking back to see if anymore gingerbread people have arrived!

_____________________________ ​Hour of Code

The 5th grade students in Ms. Gallagher's class were very excited to be a part of the Hour of Code.  Students worked in pairs to code their way through different challenges.  Most of the students worked on a Dance Party Challenge, where they chose a song, some dancers, and choreographed the moves to a new dance routine.  Other students worked on a Minecraft based challenge where they went on an aquatic adventure.  All of the pairs completed the challenges successfully in a hour! For the rest of the week they will be sharing their activities with other students in Brookwood.

took over the STEAM Lab recently to work on their teamwork; problem-solving; and engineering skills.  The challenge:  Build a structure using only gumdrops and toothpicks.  Your structure must be as tall as a paper cup, and strong enough to hold your Social Studies text book.  Check out their results!
