We are an inquisitive, fun, smart and excited community of learners. We are diverse in every sense of the word - culturally, economically, racially, linguistically. Our school was rated one of the most diverse schools in Oakland, pulling from many socioeconomic levels. We are proud of our cooperation and support of the children. We come together in the classroom to create a common learning community.
Our district is a "Gmail" district where all students have Google Drive accounts, making our students technology familiar at a young age.
We love Chromebooks in fourth grade! However, we share a Chrome cart with two other classes. This makes it hard for us to have consistent access to the Chromes. We have computers that are always in our room, but are three short of a class set. A class set would be a different life for us. We use them a lot for our education. We have been learning how to collaborate online by reading, researching and writing using Google Read and Write Tools and Google Docs. We also use the Chromes for math practice using programs like XtraMath and ST Math. We also do "Scratch", the online coding environment from MIT. Now that all of our standardized testing is online, it is ever more important for us to provide all students with computer practice.
