Practicing telling time

March 8, 2017

We have practiced time a lot lately. We’ve used regular clocks and even clock apps to help us practice. This is an important skill to keep working on at home even after we take the test tomorrow.

Math – Telling Time

We are working on telling time this week, learning how to tell time to the five-minute mark, like 1:25, 6:45, etc.  This is a great skill you can help your child practice at home.  We are also talking about AM and PM and using terms like “half past”.

Pete the Cat – Reader’s Theatre Videos on our Website

Most of the kids finally finished their first iMovie project on the iPad.  They took the audio from the reader’s theatre play “Pete the Cat – Valentine’s Day is Cool” and put that with pictures from the book to make it into a video story book.  The kids who are finished have their videos posted at our classroom website.  Check them out!

Keep Reading!!

We’ve got one more month to go for the kids to earn their trip to see the Fort Wayne Tincaps baseball game.  Please make sure your child is reading at least 10 minutes every night and turning in their reading logs on Friday.

Prodigygame.com

The kids have another fun website they can use to practice math skills.  It is called Prodigy.  The kids love it.  They get to collect treasure and “battle” other wizards in the game.  In order to do well, they have to answer math questions.  This is a game they can play at home or anywhere they have internet access.  Their username for the game is in their SeeSaw app.

Students used iMovie to make a Reader’s Theatre video – Part 3

March 2, 2017

In this project, the students in my class were learning how to use iMovie on the iPad. They used the audio from a reader’s theatre play based on “Pete the Cat: Valentine’s Day is Cool”. The students, in teams, recorded their voices reading the play. Pictures from the book of the same name were used as the visuals. The students then worked in iMovie to put the words and pictures together. This is the end product of their first time using iMovie. Enjoy!
