Lights! Action! Cameras!

Students in the Photography Club  are equipped with digital cameras and computer netbooks to help them achieve that "Perfect Shot."

Along with the help of a guest speaker, who showed her displayed work on the Internet, students were able to view the photographer's work without leaving the confines of the building. 
The Photography Club at Blackland Prairie Elementary meets twice a month after school. Club Sponsors are Carmen Scott, Lori Corbett, and Kris Korfanta.

Lock in Your Answers!

First Graders in Mrs. Jami Allen's class have been busy learning all about Matter in their Science class. After viewing a Brainpop video clip, they enthusiastically participated in answering the quiz questions, submitting their answers via Turning Point clickers. As the question was posed, each student responded his/her choice, and awaited the revealing of the correct answer. Immediate feedback met with some very excited students, as they conquered the quiz! The time of this lesson? It was 2:30 pm, Friday afternoon, taking a quiz - and having fun! Great work, First Graders!
