We have been discussing digital literacy quite a bit these past months. We have been making connections everywhere we look. Additionally, the 3rd, 4th, and 5th graders have been introduced to spreadsheets in Excel. Watch for the projects they are working on to be posted later…
I know that our time together each week is quite limited. I would like to make sure that we have not forgotten about our blog buddies and how to write quality comments. SO, in an effort to encourage you to practice your digital skills at home, I am issuing a blogging challenge! This month, students can earn 1 piece of candy per 2 quality comments left on our blog or on our Blog Buddies posts. Remember, a quality comment would include all of the items we have discussed in class. The top comment writer will receive a cool PRIZE! All other participants will have an opportunity to win a prize, as well, by having their name entered into a drawing.
Please post a comment here to tell us what you are learning from our friends and where you learned it. The student who finds the most interesting or unique fact will also receive a PRIZE. We will vote on the most interesting comments at the end of the month.
Don’t forget to ask questions and leave comments for other students.
Another part of the challenge involves practicing your keyboarding skills at home. You have an extra chance to earn 1 piece of candy each week that you practice your keyboarding skills at home. Visit Dance Mat Typing or E-Learning for Kids, from home, at least 2 times for 20 minutes each during the week. Then, leave a quality comment on this post with your first name and an adult family member’s first name who can confirm that you met this challenge.
What have you learned from our Blog Buddies?
Can you tell me about a time that you participated in a contest?
When everyone returned to school, I heard many stories about new cameras and fun pictures that were taken. It seemed like a great time to continue talking about photo editing. This week our 4th and 5th graders had a chance to try out some of the fun programs and websites that are available.
If you’d like to try too, visit these sites:

Flying paper airplanes in school will get you into trouble, right? Not if you are learning about force, motions, and energy! If you were paying attention in class, you know the forces acting on an airplane are:

Hey it’s Abby! Today we are talking about Video Games. Now video games are fun, cool, and awesome, but what about our health? Now in my opinion you should only play at the most three video game networks, because if you have more you will want to play it more. You sit still to play video games. If you are sitting still and not being active you can become obese! Obese is just a nicer word than fat!! Now I’m just trying to get you to relize what harm can do to you if you become a video nut! Just remeber to be healthy, active, and just have fun!!
Leave a comment and tell us your favorite video game AND your favorite outside activity.

Hey it’s the JJ Duo here again and I just have to say I’m so glad that college basket ball is over, so we can get closer and closer to the new season and see how Michigan State’s going to mess up again. This time Michigan is going to be there with state in the finals . When state messes up their going to get bumped. Finally states ego caught up with them and it’s going to eat at them the rest of the off season. There going to have to share the spotlight with a team who was better than them the whole time and just didn’t show it. I’m going to add, Michigan love em or hate em, there here and here to stay. I prefer to love em. I just thought WE’D have a quick talk with our auideance. keep commenting we need our fans. Michigan and Michigan State . See you for part 4.
