Did you know...

When you press the windows key and L key at the same time, you can lock your computer without shutting it down. It's a great habit to get into when you walk away from your desk.

Tools for the Classroom...

  • Unite for Literacy is a free digital library with an abundance of books for emergent and new to English readers. It works on iPads and can be read in English and Spanish or in the narration setting of 37 different languages. You can download the QR code below to print off and scan for quick access to the site on the iPads.

  • Cute Monster Sorting Activity - I received this from a tech blog that I subscribe to. If you would like to use it, you can open it in the Slides app on the iPad or you can use it in whole group instruction from your computer.

  • Candies in the Bag: This activity has the students counting candies in the trick-or-treat bag and then checking their answer with a QR code. You can extend this activity by asking the student how many candies would there be if we added candies or take some away.
