First Grade at O.C.T.

January 19-22

App of the Week: Timeline

Timeline allows students to create a graphical representation of an event or process by displaying items sequentially along a line. Timelines can be organized by time of day, date, or event, and the tool allows users to create a label with short or long descriptive text. Adding an image for each label makes a timeline more visually appealing.

Highlight of the Week

Fraction Scoot! The students have been working on fractions this week. This week we played a "scoot" around the room fraction game!
