FCS Students Use iPads to Teach Zion Students Spelling
Mrs. Jessica Sauser’s 2-4 grade students at Zion Lutheran Elementary had the opportunity this past week to work on their spelling words along with their reading and writing skills in a new way. Natalie Lingenfelter, with the assistance of Plainview High School FCS students, instructed students in the use of iPads and the app Scribble Press to have students create books using their spelling words.
As part of her FCCLA STAR project titled “Teach and Train”, Natalie Lingenfelter (FCCLA and FEA Member) has spent the last few months researching a career in elementary education, observing classroom instruction, and interviewing elementary teachers. The major portion of her project included writing a lesson plan followed by the teaching of that lesson.
Natalie will complete her Teach and Train Portfolio and then prepare for the FCCLA District 8 STAR Competition held January 23, 2013 at Wayne State College. At districts Natalie will present her portfolio to the judges, give a 10-minute presentation explaining her portfolio and what she has learned, and then be interviewed by the judges about her project. All FCCLA members will be presenting their STAR projects January 17th at 7:00 pm at the high school. Parents of FCCLA members and the community are encouraged to attend the presentations and see the variety of projects members have completed so far this year.
