It was a wonderful first week of school. The students did a great job settling in and we got right to work. Thank you for coming to the back to school night meeting on Wednesday. If you have any questions please let me know. I’ve linked my presentation here if you missed it.
This week I’m sending home information on logging in to several web sites. Sum Dog is a math web site that we use often and is a great way to practice basic facts. Spelling City is a web site that allows the students to practice our weekly spelling and vocabulary words. I plan to post assignments on this site for the students to do for homework as well as in class assignments. We will also be using Kid Blog. On this blog we will be able to create a virtual portfolio of the students work. The settings I created for our class don’t allow anyone other than our class to view the posts. We won’t be using this blog for a few weeks. All of the log in passwords and codes will be taped to the inside cover of the students homework assignment book. Snap a picture of the passwords so that you will have a copy of them. I’ve also created links to these and other websites on the First Grade page of the school website along the side bar.
I also wanted to let you know that parent’s are always welcome to join us for the first Friday Mass or other school Masses. We will be going to Mass this Friday for the opening of school Mass if you would like to join us.
