Math & Science Team Newsletter - Love LEARNing 2015-16

August 31, 2015

Hello Awesome Teachers,

It has been a busy first couple of weeks, and I am so excited to see all the engaging activities already happening in your classrooms. You are off to a great start with fantastic procedures in place. Let me know if there is anything that I can do to help, and I will try my best. Please read the following math & science newsletter. I have included some resources and links for you to use.


Reminder:

All bar-coded items will need to be checked out through the library. I will check out any materials that I deliver to you from now on. Please remind Marilyn to check out your Investigation Card Kits & TE sets when she comes around to scan your materials.


Love Learning,

Hilary

Versatile Kits

VersaTiles: Getting Started

Need more tiles, just ask ...

Remember that kits will need to be checked out through the library. If I delivered your kit to your room, then I have already checked it out to you before I dropped it off. Each kit has 10 tile sets, but we have plenty of extras. If you need more, just ask. I am trying to label them so we will know where to return them at the end of the year.


Tip: If you don't want your kids to see the solution, you can easily cover it with a sticky note.

I have checked, and it looks like everyone has a log in that teaches Science this year. This is a fantastic resource for those of you who plan science, but all teachers who teach science will need their own account as well.
