The fourth graders recently created thanksgiving “Raps with Apps” on the iPads. They began using the Smart Drums feature in GarageBand app to develop a pattern of beats. Then they wrote their rap to go along to the beats. Then they used a second iPad with the iTalk app to record their rap with the beats playing in the background. The final step was to email their completed file to Miss Bosch.
Students had a lot of fun and did a great job being creative with music tools while praising God. Here are a few examples of their raps:
Recently, the Kindergarten students used the Faces I Make app to make funny food faces. Here is a video I put together showing their faces. (If your child’s project is missing, they may have been absent or we may have had a technical problem when saving their picture.)
The second graders recently made these “Happy Thanksgiving” pictures in computer class. While doing this project, students learned how to format text to change the size, color, centering, and font. They also had to follow multiple steps independently to draw their turkey using a variety of tools and then learned to send the completed picture to the printer without help. Here is a gallery showing all the completed turkeys. (If you did not see a turkey for your child, they may have been absent or it might not have been completed during our class time.)
