Part of our learning includes a participating in a variety of learning experiences using technology. During math workshop students are on the computer for a short period of time each day to practice a math skill. Twice a week most children use the iPads for RAZ-Kids. Then there’s always blogging, writing stories, accessing documents in Google Classroom, using Educreations, and more. Technology is just a natural part of our day. But, that also means that children are sharing headphones throughout the day. If you do not want your child sharing computer headphones used by others, in both the computer lab and our classroom, please feel free to send in a pair of headphones or earbuds in a baggie with their name on it. Earbuds for iPads/iPhones/iPods work just fine with our laptops and desktop computers.
A couple of little things: Thanks to everyone who has been commenting on their child’s blog, and the blogs of other children in the class. The kids love it! Layers are helpful at this time of the year. Our classroom seems to go from warmer in the mornings to cooler in the afternoons. When you’re comfy; not too hot or too cold, you can learn better!
