Hour of Code

Last Saturday 1st year students of class 1 As took part in the activity Hour of Code within the "Settimana del PNSD" (you can find more info on PNSD clicking here )

They had the chance to carry out  computing activities and even programming their personal game with Minecraft.

At the beginning the tasks were easy but then they became more demanding and children had to be more concentrated and they worked hard and really very well. Most of them worked in pairs having the opportunity to help each other and to learn from their peer. They also decided what kind of game to realize and do it.

At last we shared all the games created in the following padlet that will also be used in the eTwinning project "Children's toys: yesterday, today, tomorrow ..."

It really was a very fruitful experience: great job! 

Talking about friends and best friends

These last days before Christmas holidays 3rd year students have started studying how to describe people's personality.

Here are two mind maps that can be useful to organize your presentation. Have a look at them and try to describe and important person for you in 3 minutes saying the most relevant things.

The Old Man adventures in Italy (part I)

During these months Italian students have been working on the etwinning project "The Old Man with his FIAT 600 in Europe" and wrote some stories.
Meanwhile the Old Man has been to France and is now on his way to Finland.

Packing in France
Leaving France

The stories have first been written using word and then transformed in books using storyjumper and storykit.

Here are some examples
