This week we had a garden lesson, an environmental justice lesson, and a Junior Achievement game about starting a business. We also managed to do some reading and math too!
I received a grant from the Anubis Ridans Motorcycle Club for voice recorders! Students have been reading with good expression and fluency as they use the voice recorders.
We have a great opportunity for kids to work on their math skills at school and home. Our iReady math program has great lessons, designed specifically for what each student needs. My goal at school is to have kids work on the program for 15 minutes three times a week. Sometimes this is hard to achieve! It would be fantastic if kids could fit in three sessions at home as well. Please use the math tab at the top of the blog to get to a link to the Clever login for iReady. Kids use this at school and know their login information.
We had a wonderful donation of snacks this week- thank you! We will need more soon so if you are able to send in something, thank you! I appreciate, and I know the kids do too, their mid-morning snack. So many of you have generously donated! If you are able, we would appreciate donations of crackers, pretzels, fruit, veggies, or other healthy snacks.
