Each class reviewed the matrix to remind students to use their PAW behavior everywhere when in school.

It was Nick's birthday today and he gave US a present! Thanks so much for the playground balls. We will put them to good use during our PBIS extra recess reward each week!


I also want to thank all those who have donated candy, markers, stickers, paper, etc. Your generosity is much appreciated!


Finally, a big thank you to Mrs. Robbins for decorating our door for the Fall. It looks fabulous!

Keyboarding Skills

We started using a new keyboarding app on our Chromebooks this week called Typing Club. The students love it and I hope over time it will improve their typing skills:) I also created a Keyboarding Skills page on Haiku with many useful tips, tricks, and resources for proper technique, accuracy and speed.

Mrs. Hassels' Math Class

In math we started learning about the new unit. Next we did an exit slip to see if the people would take the test and most of the class did the test. Also some people finished the test. The next day we did math boxes and we had to do challenging things that are the same as the top number.Then the rest of the people that did the test finished. The next day we played a fun place value game and it was Mrs. Hassels version and I got a learning contract with fun math games. Finally I worked on some worksheets and then I played math games on my chrome book.Today we used raisins as a math tool! First, we estimated how many raisins in the box the average was 95. Next, we learned about landmarks, then we charted how many raisins and said what the maximum, minimum, range, and a little bit of median and mean. Finally we did a time test.By Jonas
