Congratulations to our first Tweeters!!! Christian, Daniela, Gabriella and Annabel all did a terrific job of using the success criteria and rubric to ensure that their Tweet of the Week was fabulous. I was very impressed with their confidence and the depth of thinking that their tweet included. They were all able to answer the challenging questions posed by their classmates with ease. I look forward to two more groups of Tweeters in the coming weeks.
Two news items
1. We are going through a lot of glue, so I would appreciate it if you could please ensure that your child has a glue stick or white glue to start back to school. Also, we are using the iPads regularly, and headphones are very helpful when listening to text. If your child doesn't already have earbuds or headphones at school, please consider sending some in. They will be stored in the students' desks, for easy access.
2. I am using Showbie (there are buttons to the Showbie login page on this website's Math page and English page) and will be uploading weekly math practice problems, to allow for additional practice. Each week, I will post a new problem set, and I'll add the solutions on Fridays so that you can review the problems with your child, as required. Sometimes, you will also find a web link or free app suggestion, for further practice. If you don't have access to Showbie (which is a free app for any device), please send me a note in the agenda and I will provide your child with a hard copy of the assignment. The weekly problems will reinforce the concepts we are working on and will help to strengthen problem solving skills. Students should have already completed "Problèmes de la semaine #1".
