Computer and Stem teacher, Ms. Papaycik brings weekly, skill-building lessons to Grades K-4 classrooms encouraging creative and critical thinking that students need in today's world.
This week, students in Second Grade were introduced to foundational typing skills. They learned hand placement and letter sequence on the keyboard. This helps students become more efficient in typing, prevent "hunt and peck typing, reinforce reading and spelling skills, and much more.
In Stem, Ms. Papaycik challenged Fourth Grade students to create a snowman in 30 minutes, using only newspaper, masking tape, and toilet paper. The objective is to create the tallest snowman in the allotted time. Results show how clever our students truly are! Teamwork, problem-solving, and experimenting are a few of several benefits of this Stem activity.
