Hour of Code Week

Students in grades 2-5 were given maze pieceswhich they had to form together to create their own path for Dash to get through. Each grade level had specific obstacles in their path (depending on what we are studying during our normal library classes, like continents, dinosaurs, and Amelia Bedelia) that they had to program the Dash robot to get around, while still staying in within their mazes. They utilized Blocky or Dash and Dot in order to accomplish this task. In grades K-1 and Krista Granieri’s class, we are doing an unplugged gingerbread activity, in which students had to create their own path for the gingerbread man to get to his house, while eating treats and avoiding enemies in their path. They then had to write the code for their gingerbread boards according to a guide.

Math & Movement Family Fun Night

Wednesday evening, October 24, 2018 South Bay Elementary School hosted Math & Movement Family Fun Night. 

With the combined help of the West Babylon Senior High School Honor Society, parents and teachers the event was a huge success. Over one hundred students and their families, had fun practicing basic skills while using visual, auditory and kinesthetic learning modalities. 

This has been made possible by the generous contribution of the Lowe’s Charitable and Educational Foundation (LCEF) for the Moving Students into Success project.
