We had a blast last month learning about coding and participating in the “Hour of Code.”  Below are some photos from our celebration of CODE!

The first grade students are learning about using MAPS online.  We were able to use Google Maps to view places all over the world.  They especially loved seeing Disney World, The Eiffel Tower and of course… Country Elementary!  We practiced using the Earth/Satellite view and the “street view.”  It might be fun to let your child read the Google Map instructions on your mobile device as you travel to local places around Pinckney.  This will help strengthen his/her MAP skills and ability to use navigation tools like Google Maps.  Below are a few photos.

The 2nd and 3rd grade students spent three weeks in January taking the MAP test during Technology Class.  They will resume regular Technology classes the week of January 26th.
