As part of Mrs. Grillo's Spanish Class, our 8th graders headed to Federal-Hill in Providence on Friday. They needed to order and converse in Spanish during this "delicioso" trip.
Don Jose Tequilas restaurant is well-known in historic Federal-Hill for having the best upscale Mexican cuisine. They provided excellent service and authentic dishes for our students to experience.
Kindergartners explore the world of coding during their Friday activity period. Our young learners explore the basics of building this computer language with unplugged activities using Lego platforms and creating algorithms to move a peer around the rug to collect jewels. This promotes computational thinking—teaching how to break down a problem into small sequence of parts. They work in cooperative groupings to sequence the steps and test their series. We have the opportunity to work on iPads using a free app of ScratchJr. https://www.scratchjr.org/
