STEM and Innovation At Laguna Road
            Third grade was in the STEM Lab this week to learn all about herd mentality. Every student broke into herds of different size and with differing numbers of “young” and “adult” members represented by small and large tools for the activity. Through simulations of food-gathering exercises the students learned about positive and negative factors that affect animals that choose to live in herds. The exercise also allowed the students to problem-solve in real time by finding multiple solutions to aid the “young” members in getting more food back to their home. This was a wonderful exercise to challenge the student’s perspectives and motivate them to think in new ways they often would not have to.
Tech Corner
These 3rd grade students are enjoying the launch of Nearpod in their classroom this week. Nearpod is an interactive platform teachers can use to deliver instruction. Teachers can create or download a presentation and students will join the lesson on their individual iPads. Students then respond to the teacher's prompts on their own, in real time. This transforms the way students interact with traditional presentations by allowing them to be hands-on throughout the instruction.
Writing Workshop
In 3rd grade, students are learning about fables, and writing their own fables. Students are brainstorming "Mighty Morals" and using their iPads to post their ideas on a class Padlet. Padlet is a free application to create an online bulletin board that you can use to display information for any topic. You can add images, links, videos, and more. It's a great tool for fostering student collaboration and increasing their participation in class.
