Ask Your Child About

Did you like having your own Ipad to use for our Math lesson?

Was Abbie a hero form the story Keep the Lights Burning Abbie?

What do you do when you see parenthesis in a Math problem?

Ipads

On Thursday I borrowed enough Ipads from other teachers so that every child had one. I did this because I wanted to use a new program called Nearpod . I developed a lesson that helped the kids to review for the Math test. During the lesson the kid could see each slide from the lesson on their Ipad and answer the questions using their own Ipad. The kids LOVED it!!!
