You Have Arrived @
Mr. Autenrieth's Website!
Wow - it's already March and I'm so excited to continue our learning for the remainder of the school year. First of all, I'm very pleased with all the effort and participation all students have made during various computer and STEM activities during the past few months. We've built towers, we've knocked down towers - we made floating lego boats, we've made robots, and we've even begun learning about simple machines. Additionally, our students continue to work on Google apps and keyboarding - every skill practiced is important and we'll continue to review everything throughout the year!
March Activities & Goals - students will continue working with their Google apps programs and understand how to utilize Google Classroom in a more interactive way. This month, students will also continue interacting with our Lego We Dos, which are programmeable robots that they design, build, and code. Additionally, our upper grades will be completing research slide shows in addition to the hands on activities that they will participate in. Something I'm really looking forward to during the last few months is incorporating a little video production within our school - and I'll certainly guide students along the way!
Students are working together as "TEAM" to plan, create, and improve their new STEM projects, including Lego sets, Keva blocks, and interactive marble runs. More photos to come as we continue to solve our classroom challenges! I'm excited for students to begin working in centers where they circulate among different activities during our classroom instructional times!Check out some of our recent "builds"--------Switlik School News - 2nd Marking PeriodExciting News - Switlik 3rd - 5th Grades Using Google Accounts, Robots, & Educational STEM Sets (Legos, Keva Planks, Magnetics, etc).During this marking period, all Switlik students in the 2nd grades have logged into their Google Accounts to join my Google Classrooms, where they will find assignments and activities during each class lesson. Students will next become focused on Google Docs & Slides as well as the Typing Club program which helps to teach keyboarding skills. Additionally - students have begun using STEM classroom centers where they complete a different activity and rotate around the room as they work with our new STEM kits - including Dash robots/iPads, Lego sets, and even simple magnet pieces!Thanks To All Who Attended & Participated In Some of Our Recent Switlik Events such as Holiday Breakfast, 5th Grade Chorus Concert, and all our school fundraisers! I look forward to seeing everyone at some more of our upcoming events for the 2018-19 school year!--------My Personal Switlik Focus Goals
