Brain Breaks and Exercise!

This year my students will be using Go Noodle for "brain breaks" and some exercise. Research shows this is quite important for increased oxygen and brain activity!  The kids LOVE it!

Our class is enrolled in a program called which 


meant as a daily training for arithmetic.  This is not a game.  It is training which takes a few minutes daily then is finished for that day.  Students just complete their training and logout.  The program tracks their progress and gives practice based on their needs, emphasizing accuracy, memorization and speed. This is a free resource for us to help increase speed in math computation! 

Our school is working hard to make sure that all of our children get the basic reading skills they need to be successful in school both now and in higher grades. At the beginning of each school year, we will check every child in Kindergarten – Grade 3 to see if they are reading as well as they should be for their grade. If your child’s reading is not on track for the grade, he or she will receive extra reading help. Click above to read more.
