Peek at the Week

Week of September 19th

Prodigy- Math Game

This week we began using a game called "Prodigy". This game allows the students to play a game while learning math. They practice assigned skills that I have selected for them, which are current to what we have been doing in class. The kids are SUPER excited about this, which is great! This will become a part of math workshop next week, in addition to their regular in class assignments. Their in class assignments will not be homework unless they do not use their in class time well, or unless they need a lot of extra help with it.

Seesaw

Seesaw is a portfolio app that we will be using this year, the students will be posting things that they are interested in or that they are proud of here. Students can comment on each others, and I will approve all things that are posted or commented on. As students work in this app and add things it will notify you also that they have posted so that you can see what we are working on in class. This is a great way for you to talk with them about things that we are doing in school! Follow these directions to find your child's account:


This year we're going to use a new tool to share what we're learning in class called Seesaw. Your child will have his or her own learning journal, and you can get notified when your child adds new items. It's completely private -- only you can see your child's journal outside of class.

Click on https://app.seesaw.me/s/717-872-136 to sign up -- it takes just 30 seconds.

Once you sign up, you can download the Seesaw Parent app for iPhone or Android, or access your child's journal on the web.

Thanks!

P.S. If you have more than one child using Seesaw, or want to add a new class/school year for your child, follow the link in this email, then click 'Sign in' tab at the top. You do not need to create a new account.

Accelerated Reader

As the year is starting out it is important that your child is reading. They have their weekly reading for 30 minutes three times a week, and that is due on Thursdays. In addition to this they also need to be getting their AR points started out. This next week we will be setting individual goals for AR points and the students will be working towards that goal for the quarter! Please help them remember how important it is that they read!
