New Student Blogs…and Happy Holidays!

This was an exciting week in 2KM and 2KJ because we started…

Glitter Words

Mrs Morris and Miss Jordan have a system where students are able to earn their own blog if they leave lots of comments on our class blog and our blogging buddies’ blogs.

Congratulations to Keira, Kayla, Alana, Ava, Ella, Amelie and Jordi!

Using Glogster

Over the past two days Miss Jordan and Mrs Morris showed some students how to use Glogster.

Glogster is an online tool that allows you to make free interactive posters, or “glogs”. The word glog is short for graphical blog.

You can add text, images, photos, audio, video and special effects to create a glog, and finished glogs can be embedded into blogs so you can share them with everyone. Glogster is easy and fun to use!

Here are some glogs we made about our holidays.

Have you ever made a glog before?

Learning Scratch!

Today Mrs Morris’s husband, Nate, came in to investigate Scratch with six lucky students in 2KM and 2KJ.

Scratch

Mr Morris is a teacher at Kardinia International College and he is on holidays already. Mr Morris teaches Scratch to his year seven students.

Scratch is a programming language that lets you create your own interactive stories, animations, games, music and art.

Will, Kayla, Liam, Mia, Jordi and Harry learnt how to make sprites (objects) move, change colour, produce sounds, produce speech and be controllable with the mouse and arrow keys.

Here are some of the students’ creations…

Scratch is a free program for anyone to use. If you want to download it, just visit the Scratch website and click on download. There is a great support page on the website to teach you all about Scratch. Click here to find the Scratch cards that 2KM and 2KJ students used to try out their skills.

What do you think of our students’ Scratch projects?
