Morning Carpet Time

Math- Mad Minute Monday

All February Mad Minutes went home today. Students can practice these for fun at home if they want.

New math centre- It’s an app called Front Row. If you download this free app on your child’s device at home, they can practice different math skills. The app actually judges how well they are doing on certain concepts and moves them on or gives them more practice if they need it. My teacher username is maleym and their name is first name and then just the first initial of their last name when logging in.

100th Day of School

Morning Carpet Time

Math- We used our 100 objects today to count to 100 by 10’s, 5’s, 2’s, and 1’s.  Most children were able to do this, but maybe double check with your child when they get home. Can they count by 2’s, 5’s, and 10’s to 100?

Twitter- 100 year old app

Chores and Mail- I apologize, but we definitely ran out of time during mail with all of the Valentines.  If your child didn’t get a chance to hand them all out, I told them I would keep them here and we would deal with it when we come back from the break! Sorry!

Home time

Have an awesome break! We will see you on February 22nd!
