Mrs. Edwards' Class

Week 18: January 11-15

Art Room Supplies Needed

The artists in first and second grade are working hard on their student choice animal paper mache projects. The art room is running low on the following items. Any help is greatly appreciated.

  • newspapers
  • masking tape rolls
  • any small plastic container (ex: butter bowl, sour cream, etc. )

Suggested Apps to Download

From time to time I will suggest some apps to download (if your child is bringing a tablet to class). All of the apps will be free downloads. These apps are already on the school iPads. If you could please download the following apps this weekend, I would appreciate it (if you haven't already).

  • ThingLink
  • Xtra Math (this is actually a website -, but can be saved to the tablet's home screen for easy access in the future)
  • Show Me
  • Qrafter

Please let me know if you have any questions!

Get excited and mark your calendars for our first TCE FAMILY S.T.E.A.M. NIGHT on Friday, February 5th from 5:30-7:30pm. STEAM is an educational term to describe real world opportunities for students to learn with science, technology, engineering, the arts, and math. At the TCE FAMILY STEAM NIGHT, TCE students and their family members of all ages are welcome to come and participate in a variety of unique, educational STEAM experiences. Participants will travel as a family (children with their adults) to share in the learning process! Pizza will be available in the cafeteria for families to purchase. More details will be forthcoming! We hope you plan to be there!
