Each year, ABC/25--the educational fundraising foundation for our school district--awards grants to teachers for classroom materials that will be used to spark excellence and innovation in student learning. See how Dryden students are benefitting from these wonderful opportunities!
Students are learning about coding and programming with Beebots in kindergarten.
The ELMO document camera allows students to project their work and present to their peers. It's great to see students in the lead teaching and learning from one another.
Students can solve mysteries, manage a pizza restaurant, and participate in a variety of individualized hands-on learning with Osmo Play.
Creativity, problem-solving, teamwork and engineering skills were utilized by students as they built Art-bots in art class with Mrs. Fuglestad.
The fourth grade study of the transfer of energy was enhanced when students got to see first hand these concepts in action after building and launching their straw rockets.
Additional items Dryden acquired this year include bridge-building playsets, interactive postal mail centers and books to build students' inferential thinking. We are very grateful for the efforts and generosity of the ABC/25 Foundation.
