Tech Tips (and other goodies)

Hour of Code Week

  • What is coding and why is it important?
  • Next week! December 4-10
  • We will address coding during library, but you may use Code.org in your class, too!
  • This can be a "go-to" website for free time/stations/etc
  • **I recommend that you "play" on Code.org yourself to help you understand any questions the kids might have.

AR Check In

  • ALL students should have reading level and goal inside library folder.
  • ALL students should have goal recorded in AR program.
  • Please make CERTAIN that all library folders are signed.
  • Tentative incentive party will be December 19th during specials.
  • To qualify: three genres read and tested, goal met, at least 80% accuracy
  • Please remember....if a student scores BELOW their previous score on STAR, leave their ZPD the same as it was.

Two Helpful Apps

  • Google Keep: checklist that will sync across all devices! Add collaborators to your list! Honey Do list, anyone?
  • Santa's Bag: lifesaver if you have multiple presents to buy! Great especially if you have young kids!

Woolsey Book Fair

  • Next week during library classes
  • Book Fair will not be open to public
  • Each child will receive two FREE books!!
  • Thank you letters the following week?
