A few minor victories!

We finished our first “movie” today! Each of the students took pictures of multiplication arrays and used them to make Microsoft Photo Story movies. PowerPoint intro slides, text added with PS, and created music: they did a lot and had fun doing it. We’ll try again next week with solid objects–I’m looking forward to it.

Logo programming is going well. We haven’t had as many “formal” lessons as I would like, but that might be OK. I was looking at the AMSTI web site and had to chuckle: next year (year 2) we’ll be learning a program called “Turtle Tracks.” Gee, I wonder what programming language that’s based on…

Logo is really cool; I recommend it for students K and up.
