This week was picture day! Haley and Hannah dressed the same and they both looked so cute!
During the faculty meeting I taught the teachers about Evernote. We are using it for submitting lesson plans. I have also set up a notebook and sent the link to parents to they are able to access newsletters each week.
My principal asked me about starting a technology blog. I have been trying to think of a catchy title for a technology blog but so far I haven't been able to come up with anything good. Do you have any suggestions?
I thought I'd also share about an iPad app I use called Music Cues. This app allows you to use the music on your iPad and title each for different things in the classroom. I use music a lot in class and often use it for transitions or to signal a certain time of the day.
Multiplying was our focus in math the week. We made a flipbook about the 4 ways to multiply. We used the following forms: standard, lattice, partial product, and area model.
Division is right around the corner and I wanted to share this idea with my teacher followers. At a workshop last week the presenter shared this with us. There are sticky hands on each vocabulary word. The hands stretch out and stick to the sheet protector with the problem in it. So you would take the hand on dividend and stick it on the dividend. I thought this was a great idea and think the kids would like this.
STUDENTS: Which way to multiply was one you might use? Why did you like it? Is there one you probably wouldn't use? Why not?
