Parent Notes

If you haven't sent a stylus pen with your child yet, please do so as soon as you are able. A stylus pen can be used like a pen/pencil on the iPad screen and will help your child with handwriting and writing skills while they are using iPad technology. There are many of these pens available for reasonable prices at Target, Staples, Office Max, etc. Nothing fancy needed! Please send one to school for your child as soon as you are able. Let me know if you have trouble finding one. THANKS!


Thanks for helping your child with iMovie. I know there were a few issues with the app and downloading. The homework project was meant to be for fun and so the first graders become familiar with the app. If your child wasn't able to complete the project---NO WORRIES! They can continue to work on it this week. They will LOVE to share it with their classmates when it is finished!

Please remember to remind your child to watch the math videos when they are due. I know schedules can be very busy, so we won't have a video every night. This week there are only two videos to watch. Your child should be able to locate the videos in Google Classroom which can be accessed through a link on their iPad. They should know how to do this. Please check with your child each time they watch a video to make sure they understand the video and do ANY homework activity that may be a part of the video.

Videos to Watch in Google Classroom:

Tuesday Night: 8.1 Plane Shapes

Wednesday Night: 8.2 Sorting Plane Shapes
