  • Miss Puff’s classes typed out their Bible verses this week using the Chromebooks and their GAFE (Google Apps for Education) accounts.  Her reading classes also showed off their tech-savvy skills. They read an informational narrative in reading last week. It is titled Look to the North and is written as a diary about the developmental stages of wolf pups. Students are working in small groups to find facts for each stage of the pups life. Each fact is entered on their Google Slide. Next week, they hope to complete it and present our slides to each other. Miss Puff’s students have enjoyed learning more about the Google app, Google Slides.
