This week we worked on Lesson #2 in our Project Lead The Way Lessons. We learned the features of Scratch Jr using our iPads. We are learning how to change a scene, add motions and text, add your voice to characters, and save your story.
I put a link to the Scratch Jr. information page (which has the link for adroid or apple apps) on the right hand of this page.

We will try to get a few screen shots posted later.
We have a lot of be proud of!!

January 2017 Monthly Update
GOSA Announces 2016 School Awards, Updated School Grades Website, and Updated List of Chronically Failing Schools
On January 5, Gov. Nathan Deal, along with GOSA, announced that 218 Georgia public schools in 53 districts will receive Highest Performing or Greatest Gains school awards, an increase of 31 schools from last year. At least 60% of eligible schools in Buford City, Decatur City, Forsyth County, Heard County and Oconee County received awards. Gwinnett County had the largest increase in award schools with 26 schools, compared to 13 in 2015.
In addition, GOSA released the 2015-2016 update to the School Grades website, which provides interactive school performance reports for all public elementary, middle, and high schools in Georgia. These reports will help parents, students, educators, and communities have clear and concise school performance information so they better understand the strengths and challenges of their local schools. Additional reporting elements will be added and made visible later in January when the Georgia Department of Education releases the 2016 Climate and Financial Efficiency Star Ratings. These elements will include student mobility rates, star ratings, district per pupil expenditures and an additional school comparison capability that identifies schools with similar characteristics.
GOSA also updated the list of chronically failing schools, which now includes 153 schools in 35 districts, an increase of 26 schools since last year.
