A total of 127 Morrill Elementary students took part in a fun and interactive technology party on June 1.

Students from kinder to fifth grade were eligible for the party if they participated in a reading program such as: Reading Bunch Book Club, first grade reading challenge (read all 2x2 books for 2017 list), voted for their favorite Texas Bluebonnet book, participated in the Battle of the Books, participated in the Fairy Tale Bowl, and were a top reader in Accelerated Reader and myON. 

“Our goal was to have an engaging party that would be fun for our students. We wanted to show students that learning could be fun,” Morrill Elementary Librarian Desiree Benavides said. “Most of them didn't even realize they were learning!”

Students were able to use a green screen, Clips, Toontastic, Dash and Dot, augmented reality books, coding, and Google expeditions. Students rotated every 10 minutes to explore and learn new technology. 

Benavides collaborated with the district’s instructional technology facilitators to host the school’s first technology party.

“Ms. Dunn helped organized it, and I am very grateful for her help to ensure our first technology party was a success,” Benavides added. “Ms. Lowak, Ms. Montesdeoca, and our library assistant, Ms. Tober, helped oversee specific stations, and this made the process run that much smoother.”

The event was a big success as students are already hoping to have another technology party next year.

Way to go, Morrill Elementary!
