First Grade at O.C.T.

January 11-15

App of the Week: Venn Diagram

This app allows users to create Venn diagrams that contain two or three overlapping circles. Users identify and record concepts that can be placed in one of the circles or in the overlapping areas, allowing them to organize their information logically. The finished Venn diagram can be emailed out or saved to the device's photo album.

Highlight of the Week

This week, we researched, learned about, and compared Abraham Lincoln and George Washington.
