I hope you had a wonderful and relaxing break. I am so happy to see all of my students refreshed and ready to learn. Today the students received their Chromebooks. We are all very excited to be using these in the classroom. One of the ways we will be using these will be to "listen to reading". Please send your child with ear buds that they can keep in the classroom if they have an extra pair at home. I will hopefully supply the rest. If you have any suggestions on where I can get a bunch of these for cheap, please email me.
The month of January is going to be a busy one. Here are some of the concepts covered this month.
