Project Impact:STEM & Innovation at Laguna Road
Laguna Road took another step forward this week by introducing another resource for introductory coding, Bee Bots! Kindergarteners took their time to learn about these tools for teaching by exploring different mats with challenges associated with each. Some involved spelling certain words while others focus on adding and subtracting on a number line to reach a desired tile. After having already experienced coding with other Robotics the students were intuitive in their use of the Bee Bots. I can’t wait to see what these kids can do with their newest tools for coding! 

In 2009, for the first time over one-half of U.S. patents were awarded to non-U.S. companies because shortcomings are forcing a hold on domestic innovation. Per a study conducted by the STEM Education Coalition. 
Film Festival Prep
Kindergarten students are learning how to be filmmakers! In this class students were using their iPad and green screen technology to do a weather report. Students wrote a script, rehearsed, and then set up to film their own weather report. 
Tech Corner
The 2nd annual Laguna Road Film Festival is coming up on February 28th.  This year's theme is "What is Your Impact?" Students will be showcasing their films that address issues impacting their world. In these photos, 4th and 6th grade students are using green screen technology to create backgrounds, they are filming at different angles to provide multiple perspectives, and they are using their setting to provide context for everything from earthquakes and natural disasters to recycling!
Writing Workshop
One major focus for our Writing Workshop school initiative is to help students become stronger writers. Part of this work is helping them know how to add more details. In this week's Teaching Point, students learned that writers draft by writing partner sentences to give details.
