Digital Integration on Display at Heritage!
Students in Ms. Dinwiddie’s 3rd grade class are using the app “Scratch Jr” to practice the reading skill of SEQUENCING. Students used the app to create and/or choose the setting, design their own characters, and create a simple plot that followed the “beginning, middle, end” format. They were challenged to get their characters to move from one “scene” to another to make a complete story. The digital characters only move and/or speak when they have been programmed (beginning stages of coding) to do so. The challenging part is getting the characters to do this in the correct order, but no sequencing challenge is too difficult for these third grade heroes!
