Happy New Year!

I hope everyone had a wonderful break.  I enjoyed listening to what everyone had to share about their Christmas.  We worked on building back stamina on Read to Self and Read to Someone during Daily 5.  We also did more work on iPad.  We wrote a math problem using an app called Educreation, recorded our voice and embed it onto their blog page.  YES, now we each have a blog page that we will be using to post our creation on iPad or simply write about what is happening in our lives.  Here is a link to the students' blog.  (You can also find the link on the sidebar.)  Please pass this address onto grandparents, uncles and aunts, cousins and more!  It would be wonderful if everyone can leave comments on the students' posts.  The goals for having first graders blog is so that they can share their learning and thinking with people outside of their classroom. They will also learn that writing is another way of communication.  Kidblog is a very secure site.  All the posts and comments have to be approved by me before they appear on the web.

I will keep using the folder at as another sharing tool.  You should get an e-mail notification whenever we upload a new project.

Here is a January calendar. Please provide a case of water for the week your child name is posted on a calendar.  Thank you!
