Laptops, Math, and Seasons

Today your child is bringing home their laptop for the first time. We discussed how they need to charge their laptop and bring it to school EVERYDAY! We also discussed how we take care of their laptop: No stickers on it, do not use it when your are eating, do not put it in their backpack, and put it in a safe place at home! Their is no assignment! The class in math has continued to learn about number bonds. We learned about the number 7 today. Check out this utube that helped us understand this concept.

The class also has been learning about the 4 seasons. We finished up our last season today: summer. The students LOVED listening to this seasons song!

Thanks again for your support!! Mrs. Braun

Terrific Tuesday

Today the class started the morning by listening to the story Recess Queen. We reviewed class and school rules and then unscrambled a sentence to go along with the story.

Later in the day we practiced logging in to our computers and learning how to use the microphone in SEESAW. In math the class continued to practice subitizing. Ask your child what this means. We watched a Jack Hartman video and then played a game to review this skill!

The students also had time to explore their own math buckets. Each student will have their own bucket that has tools for them to use during math! Thank you again for your continued support
