Robots to Teach Coding Part 2 (Yrs 3 & Yrs 4) - TinkeringChild - 0 views

  •  
    "Coding or programming is the language used to talk to computers. It really is the 21st Century language being introduced into our schools' curriculum through the Digital Technologies curriculum. In the junior school coding can be so much fun as robots can be used to program and carry out instructions. This can be so rewarding for young students to engage with code and seeing the impact their code has. In this post (2 of 3), I thought I'd share some of my favourite robots which are available to suit students in Years 3 & 4."

    "Your two eyes each see an image and your brain takes these two images and creates one image in your mind.  The eye with the red lens filter only sees the blue lines and the eye with the blue lens filter only sees the red lines. When your brain puts the two different images together in your mind it creates a 3-D image.  "

Understanding Middle Schoolers: 4 Tips for Success | Getting Smart - 2 views

  •  
    "Understanding those on the verge of or in the trenches of middle school can be like finishing a complex puzzle only to realize there is a single missing piece - just when you think you have them all figured out, they pivot and leave you just as confused as you started. They sometimes feel like a walking contradiction: they want your love, but would prefer you did not show it in public; what makes them laugh one day, brings them to tears the next; going to school used to be the best part of their day, now they dread it. Whatever the contradiction is in your household, it is important to remember that the journey that these soon to be adults are traveling is a difficult yet AWESOME one. They are in a constant state of learning and discovery and as parents and guardians, we GET to be along for the ride!"

Creatubbles for global galleries (time to retire the refrigerator?) - @joycevalenza Nev... - 0 views

  •  
    "Creatubbles is a global platform for sharing and interacting with children's visual art. I believe this is a tool many of us having been looking for a long time. Designed for elementary through middle school-age kiddos, the platform allows young artists to safely showcase, archive and share their creative work. It also allows them to discover, to be inspired by, and to interact with the work of others."

    "Mystery Science is a relatively new service that is offering nice science lessons for elementary school students. The lessons on Mystery Science feature a series of videos and images arranged around a science subject. After each video there are questions that students can answer on their own or work through with your guidance. The lessons don't stop there. After the initial videos and questions you can extend the lessons by leading students in hands-on activities that reinforce the concepts shown in the videos. Mystery Science provides materials lists and detailed directions for each hands-on activity"

Ten (Plus Two) Tried-and-True Read Alouds for Middle Grades by Melanie Roy | Nerdy Book... - 2 views

  •  
    "Before becoming a librarian two Septembers ago I was a fourth grade teacher for seventeen years.  My favorite part of the day, the non-negotiable, the very best way to build classroom culture, was read aloud time.  My kids knew that no matter what our day looked like we would carve out 20 minutes every day for this sacred time of day.  Read aloud time gave everyone a level playing field to access text.  It gave us inside jokes. It gave us a shared experience we could refer to and I could use to model reading and writing strategies."

12 podcasts that will tell you a fantastic story - 4 views

  •  
    "It's official - the popular podcast Serial has surpassed 5 million downloads, making it the fastest podcast of all time to reach this milestone. This tells us that people really like murder mysteries, but also confirms something else we've known for a long time - listeners want to hear a good story. Unsolved murders are compelling, yes, but Serial is compelling because it puts the listener as close as one can possibly get to an event that happened in 1999."

10 Middle School Novels to Add to Your Classroom | WeAreTeachers - 5 views

  •  
    "In search of the spell that will compel kids to turn pages, raise hands, journal and jump in, we asked teachers and experts in our social network community to share the novels they bring to their fourth- through eighth-grade students time and time again. We asked them which middle school novels not only inspire that magic-wand effect, but also teach cross-curricular content. "

STEM and Writing: A Super Combination | Edutopia - 0 views

  •  
    " brought a superhero into my classroom the other day. He wasn't wearing a cape. He didn't have an alias. But he had the greatest superpower of all: inspiration. When you teach using project-based learning (PBL), one brings outside expertise into the classroom. My eighth graders begin the year creating science fiction based origin stories for original superhero characters as an introduction to a greater advocacy unit. Therefore, it seemed natural to bring in an actual scientist. Which brought me to CalTech and Dr. Spyridon Michalakis."
