Learning to Read is FUN in Kindergarten!

Learning to Read is FUN in Kindergarten!

This week in the computer lab our kindergarteners were introduced to Lexia, an application St. Justin School utilizes to provide differentiated instruction in reading. Lexia’s lessons are custom-tailored for each student as the program identifies which reading concepts have been mastered and which are in need of reinforcement. The program’s fun and engaging activities keep the students motivated, and the teachers appreciate the detailed data and helpful resources provided by the app. Lexia is used in the computer lab as well as in the classroom and is proving to be a wonderful asset to our early literacy...

Full STEAM Ahead at St. Justin School!

Full STEAM Ahead at St. Justin School!

Starting the fall of 2016, St. Justin piloted a lunchtime STEAM club, where students can learn technology skills and how to innovate for tomorrow’s workforce. Students use a LEGO Mindstorms robot, a New Matter 3-D Printer, and coding lessons from code.org. They have quickly learned the essentials for computer programming and design thinking.   “It’s very interesting learning to code and using the 3-D printer,” says Mitchell, a member of the club. The code.org resources have helped the students’ ability to program, and they are able to create designs and print them on the 3-D printer.   “The STEAM club has been very fascinating and fun,” says Kirsten, another member of the club. The club gives students the opportunity to try new things and to make mistakes, a key component of design thinking.   “I think it is important for students of all ages to learn technology through a hands-on curriculum,” says fellow student Andrew. The hands-on approach is very helpful, especially with being able to program robotics.   The STEAM club has been a resounding success, and St. Justin looks forward to expanding in...
