Lessons the week of February 14th - 18th
This week the kindergarten students are using Pixie 2. They will be typing in a speech bubble, "There is only one of me and I love you!" Next they will take a webcam picture of themselves so it looks like they are saying these words. Finally they will use the shape tool to make a border of hearts within the frame.
The first and second grade students are going to be using http://illuminations.nctm.org/ActivityDetail.aspx?ID=26 to be balancing equations. They are working with a partner and each making an equation to equal 10. Once they have balanced the scale ten times the second graders are moving up to the number 25, then 50 and finally 75. The first grade students are starting with the number 5, then moving to 10 then to 15 and finally 20.
