Tenth Week of School

This week's focus includes:

Math- Addition/ Subtraction

Reading- Questioning and Inference

Writing- Seed Stories

Social Studies- Earth and Space


Gaggle is a learning platform that we will begin using. My class, last year, piloted it for the school district in the elementary classroom and it was a huge success. We mostly used it for email and the children also enjoyed the social wall. It will provide your child many applications including a very safe, well-monitored email application, discussion boards, and a digital locker with document, spreadsheet, and presentation tools. It's pretty amazing. Last week, the school sent you an email about it and teachers were trained. This week, your child was introduced to Gaggle. I'm sure your children will share all the great things they do with it. You can learn more about it here. Please let me know if you have any questions.

Kinder Buddies

We will be working with Mrs. Vahrenkamp's kindergarten class. We'll have a monthly visit which includes assisting/ getting to know her children. We had our first visit last Friday making painted pumpkins for Halloween and reading books.
