First graders just wrapped up their animated storytelling module. Students began the module learning how to use code cards to write a program for a robot dog to pick up her bones and get home. Then students learned how to use Scratch Jr. and coding blocks to create programs for their characters. Students finished the module by solving the problem of making an animate story. It was amazing to see what they were able to come up with! Check your student's Seesaw account to watch your student's animated story presentation.
This is my tenth year teaching and my second with Ann Arbor Public Schools. I spent the first eight years of my teaching career as a K-8 technology teacher. I joined AAPS last year as a Media Specialist and I am thrilled to be a part of PLTW this year! In my spare time I enjoy going to the gym, baking and spending time with family and friends!
