We have mostly been working with two specific apps during math time. They are Math Bumpies and Computer Carl. Today we talked about what we liked and didn’t like about the apps and how they are helping our learning.

Our class set of ipod touches are here! We have done many fun things with them in just two days. We are using them during two our “Daily five“. (1. Listen to Reading, and 2. Word Study) We are also using them for about 10 minutes every day to try to get faster at our math facts. I want the kids to do some reviews of their favorite apps in the comments and share how it is helping their learning. Everyone else, if you have favorite apps, please share with us. It may become our favorite as well.

Today is Dr. Seuss’ birthday. We have celebrated it by wearing green and reading lots of books by Dr. Seuss. We had a trivia question too.

We watched Horton Hear a Who at lunch. Mrs. Buckner, our librarian, has a blog. We voted for our favorite story.
