iPad Success Continues!

Thank you SO much for your home support with getting the iPads going (and getting them back to school)! I appreciate the feedback. Also, I am just fine if students wish to complete their homework on paper instead of on Schoology.


We will be taking iPads home again on Tuesday, February 9. The goal will be to complete the math homework for that day on Schoology (or try an app we use in the classroom).


**THANK YOU TO ALL FAMILIES WHO CHARGED THE IPAD AT HOME! I didn't ask students to do this, but many came back with 100% battery life. Awesome! It made a big difference. I greatly appreciate your help with this!

Sharing

The students have shown an interest in using one of our weeks of sharing time to bring in something to share with their classmates. I've never tried this before, but with a few guidelines, it sounds like a great way to get to know each other on a new level.


During the week of February 8th, on their regular sharing day, students may BRING something to share. Please help your third grader pick out something appropriate. I will keep the items safe in the classroom during the day. Please refrain from sending anything perishable, living, or extremely valuable. Let me know if you have any questions about this.

Friendship Celebration

Our classroom celebration will be held on Friday, February 12 from 10:30-11:30am. We decorated bags to collect our valentines. If your third grader wishes to bring in valentines, please bring enough for each child. *This is completely optional. We do not have any allergies relating to candy (if you wish to include with the valentine).
