We visited Mexico today...well, sort of!

Mrs. Haberman is in Mexico for holidays and we have been missing her! We were so lucky for the opportunity to talk to her (and see her on SKYPE!!!)
The kids asked her sooo many questions and we learnt a lot of things like, there are lots of mountains where she is, it is hot and you need a lot of sunscreen, and hump back whales live in the ocean and they are as big as a school bus!!!
We had a great time visiting with her (and meeting her mom!!!)
See you soon Mrs. Haberman!

IXL math

Just a reminder to check out the IXL website. (The link is on our school's homepage).
It really is a GREAT place to practise what we have been working on in class as well as to go back and refresh on past lessons.
I can look at how your child is doing and see their strengths and weaknesses, I can then plan according to what your child needs (as well as the needs of others). This might mean re-teaching a lesson to the entire class, taking out a small group, or one one on support.

I see a few of you have been on it. What do you think? I'd love to hear your comments!

I hope you enjoy the BLOG! :)
