There’s been lots of change to the library and computer lab space over the summer. THANK YOU to so many people at POP who have been working together to make the new space, the Media Lab, a wonderful new place to discover and learn while using many types of media.
Students and classrooms will be using many types of media and will be able to extend and enrich learning in the lab. The space is planned for literature, technology, and creativity to take action (including this blogging site!)
As our blogs grow, come back here frequently to read and leave comments on student blogs. We look forward to reading and learning from your feedback.
God bless our school year!
Have you had commercial jingles or music stick in your brain with incredibly lasting power? I have! And the amazing thing to me is that the jingles sometimes last only a matter of seconds such as a company giving their phone number. Put it with a rhythm or some music and it’s more likely to have sticking power.
Such the case here with Common Sense Media. I love their characters and clever songs & music. I bet you will too… and then we’ll all be singing or humming along! Their lessons are great ones, so this is good food for the brain too. Fun and smart – Win! Win!
I’m taking the Teacher Challenge in learning about Edublogs so we can all experience the most and enjoy making some fabulous picture perfect posts!
We all need to remember to give credit for pictures and work that is not our own. Edublogs gave LOTS of citing examples and site examples to use with ease. That’s great because we want to blog correctly without becoming bogged down by loads of rules.
The one I chose to use is one I’ve never heard of before.
Hello! I’m Mrs. Peterson and am excited for this new role that I’ve entered this year. I’ve been a classroom teacher for many years. I reached my 25 year milestone last year at POP! What started in the Preschool department led to Fourth Grade which now has led me to MEDIA LAB!
My love of literature, language arts, and technology are a great combination for learning in the lab. I feel it’s ultimately important for all to share learning in order to build a strong learning community together.
Sharing learning can look so many different ways: speaking, writing, journaling, blogging, drawing, and using technology platforms as well as other creative options. This is a list that could go on and on!
Incorporating the Bible and Christian faith are the building blocks for all learning and living life out loud. I love that daily life at POP is God-centered. We will build each other up and encourage one another in love. (1 Thes. 5:11) We are ROOTED in Him (Col. 2:7; 2020-21 school theme) and FEARLESS (Deut. 31:8; 2021-22 school theme!) because Christ is with us always.
Please feel free to contact me at any time. I look forward to the year together with KP – Grade 6 students and families!
