Fifth graders in Peter Halligan’s class at Hillside Grade School have been using Google Jamboard, a digital interactive whiteboard app, for their HMH Science Dimensions unit.

Using the app on their district-provided Chromebooks, students identified how and when scientists and engineers work together to make discoveries and solve problems. They also utilized the new Newline Board in the classroom for the lesson.

The fourth grade team is focusing on building a classroom community of creative learners with a growth mindset! They are creating a class logo and name, and have been playing lots of “getting to know you” games. They also celebrated International Dot Day by reading the book, “The Dot” by Peter Reynolds, creating their own dot masterpieces and listening to Reynolds explain the meaning behind his book through a video on YouTube. This was a great segway into teaching about growth mindset and the power of "yet!"
