What's Going on Here, Anyway?
- We're making our way through Type to Learn 3 in the 3rd grade. By the time we're finished, your children will be well situated to put more of their great thoughts on paper
- 4th graders are enjoying (well, mileage varies) an introduction to Keyboarding for Kids this week. We'll work for a few weeks to build a solid foundation in the use of the program before sending home textbooks for daily homework!
- Kindergarten and 1st graders are exploring the "other centers" at K-1 Go Here!, my portal for those grade levels. We've looked at the BBC Little Animals Activity Centre, the Li'l Fingers storybook site, and this week we're finishing up by visiting the great Starfall beginning readers' site. Visit K1GoHere! to check these out!
- 2nd graders are working with the same graphing tool we visited in previous sessions, the National Center for Educational Statistics "Create a Graph" website. We've made a simple pie graph and a simple bar graph and now we're using our pie graph data collected last week in response to the question, "Who Went to Fall Fest?" Here's my graph:
I also want to point you to a nice little movie I put together after Ms. Dent's 4th grade class spent nearly an hour seeing and hearing and visiting with Kiana, their classmate who's in Holland with her parents until January. Visit my USN Interactive Videoconferencing blog to view it!
