Today I introduced the students to Raz-Kids. This is an engaging online levelled reading program that students can use both at school and at home. There is a wide variety of fiction and non-fiction books available at every reading level and fun incentives that eager readers can earn. I like that I am able to monitor student progress and parents can also register to keep track of their child’s reading. Students can access the book on a computer through the Raz-Kids website or on a tablet by downloading the app. Students who remember how to login can start exploring tonight. Otherwise watch for an information sheet with more details coming in your child’s agenda tomorrow.
Today the students mailed hand made cards to 29 different schools in the United States. We are participating in the Holiday Card Exchange that is organized by Jen Wagner at http://projectsbyjen.com/. In return we will receive 29 cards and learn a little bit about all of the other classes participating in our group.
Here is the link to our Halloween Padlet where students can post Halloween jokes and riddles. The password should be in their agendas. On Friday we will read the jokes and riddles and try to figure out the answers and punchlines. There are lots of great sites on-line to find jokes. Use Kidrex for a safe search.
