Second graders just learned about QR codes and used them during a math scavenger hunt around the room. Students worked with partners as they searched the room for addition and subtraction facts and answers while scanning QR codes to get the next clue.
During the last evening of February, Traver School held its inaugural arts festival. All the students had artwork and sketchbooks on display, as well as art submissions for the anthology competition. The theme of the anthology this year was “Make a Mark”. In addition to artwork, the seventh graders presented a film festival, showcasing their technology projects.
Attendance was excellent and enthusiasm ran high. It was a wonderful opportunity for students to experience what it is really like to have an audience see and appreciate their work. This festive gathering will surely become an annual event in the deep of winter!
Shortly after winter break, the sixth, seventh, and eighth graders traded in their Macbook laptops for iPads. The iPads are the students' new technology that they will carry with them at school and take home. Their are lots of similarities with the iOS and the Mac OS, so students transitioned easily. Students learned about changes in file storage and navigating through different apps to do work. They are having fun with their new equipment!
