This is a digital twist on a traditional back to school activity. During this lesson students will have the opportunity to explore and express their likes, dislikes, preferences and tell their classmates and teachers their story by writing and illustrating their own book. This purposely simple template with sentence prompts allows students to create from scratch without distractions. This lesson will also open door the to have discussions about individuality, families, friends and all things involving the whole student. This lesson can be done all at once, or over the course of the school year.
Students will highlight an aspect of their culture and present it to their peers using an online video platform. They can highlight something personal (as in something unique to their family that is currently practiced), ancestral (passed down generation to generation), or cultural (something celebrated by people of their ethnicity, religions, race, etc.). Through this, they will celebrate what is unique to their own culture as well as celebrate and learn about the cultures of their peers.
In this activity, students will use the Sphero Mini to follow a path. This activity will start by driving Sphero through a maze. At different points on the path there will be "checkpoints" and students will respond to story prompts. This activity can be done multiple times for several different texts. Some of the checkpoints could involve characters, setting, problem, solution, etc. Join us as we explore a unique literacy activity with a Sphero Mini twist!
In this activity, students will direct Sphero to a sight word that is called out. Using the Activity Kit materials, students can create an obstacle course to add to the excitement of this activity! They will need to navigate to the sight word, say the word, and use the word in a sentence. This can be adjusted for each grade level and can be expanded on by having students write the words, write a story with the words, etc.
During this activity students will work on creating and understanding compound words. They will achieve this but using lines, color codes and the Ozobot robot.
