We continued our lessons on digital citizenship today as we learned about the power of the words we use through digital communication. The students discovered the importance of face-to-face communication as we discussed how one might interpret a phrase that is sent through digital media. The students discussed how important it is to be clear on what you are conveying as the person receiving the communication does not have the opportunity to see your body language, hear the tone of your voice, and sometimes does not know you personally. We will continue discussing the basics of digital citizenship this week and applying these understandings throughout the year.
The students experienced a wonderful lesson on personal hygiene in health today. Mr. Pertuit tested the students' hand washing abilities today as a way to show students how important it is to wash their hands. I do warn you that it might take a little longer for your kiddos to wash their hands as some of them found out they are not doing a good job with washing the germs off their hands.
I have truly enjoyed our lessons on Montana History this year. The students looked at the major physical features of Montana today and shared their experiences with the class. The students will have a quiz some time next week on the major MT physical features we have identified in class. I will remind the students to take their Social Studies notebooks home so they can identify the major rivers and mountains in Montana.
Our word of the day today and yesterday fit the theme of digital citizenship this week. The students learned the importance of determining if information online is valid and how to verify if what we read is the truth. The assignment notebook code for today is for your student to tell you how they would verify if a website is safe. I hope you all have a wonderful night and I look forward to another great day of learning!
