This summer, Nebo School District is sponsoring a 2-day coding class for current 6th-8th graders.
Students will learn to code using Code.org's App Lab and BBC's microbit. They will use App Lab to create apps that can be published and shared to run on any computer, tablet or smartphone with a modern browser. The BBC's microbit is a small hardware processing device (about 1/2 the size of a credit card). Projects will include: LED message display, thermometer, compass, connection to external LEDs, composing music, etc.
Reflex Math is a fun, engaging game that focuses on math fact fluency. The program adapts to the individual student through an initial assessment and through continued practice. Mrs. Peck's 5th grade class has implemented the program in recent months, and it has been such a success that Mr. Duncan has purchased full licenses for each classroom to implement by the beginning of next year. The students love it and enjoy using the program. See what some of Mrs. Peck's students had to say about Reflex:
Last night, our 6th grade orchestra participated in Nebo's annual Monster Concert. Orchestras from all over the district come together for a night to showcase all of their hard word. These 6th grade students have come to school early every week to learn stringed instruments, and it has paid off. They performed beautifully!
Thankfully, the rainy weather held off for our third graders to visit the Tulip Festival at Thanksgiving Point this morning. Small groups split up, navigated the huge park with their maps, and saw so many types of flowers! Not only were there flowers, but waterfalls, animals, and sculptures to see. They had a wonderful time!
