5th graders have upped their level of critical thinking this year by learning how to code and integrate there learning of fractions within their programing. It's amazing to watch how their minds work and grow during this process, not to mention the great engagement from all students. We, at Gold Rush, are putting in a lot of thought and work into the use of technology in the curriculum. We feel strongly that these new tools should enhance our students' learning and not just be "extra." We believe that integrating tools, applications, and software into the concepts and standards we already cover will make the learning most meaningful to students and provide a real-world application.
Ask your kiddos about what ways they've loved using technology in their learning this year!
