First, we are starting unit 3 (division concepts) in math this week. I am giving students the option choosing to have paper notes as we've been completing for units 1 and 2 or a digital copy. We have been using an app called Notability on our iPads to annotate (take notes) on PDFs. Many students have been enjoying this new method, plus there isn't the issue of lost notes.
If students (or parents) find that after a couple of lessons that their selection isn't working for them, they will be welcome to choose the other option.
Second, we will hopefully be wrapping up our life science unit this week. In the past I've passed our critters (Dwarf African Frogs, pond snails, and guppies) on to another classroom in ZPS, but they don't want them this year. If your family would like to have some/all of the critters, let me know. You would need to have:
- a 10 gallon freshwater tank
- a water heater (water is kept at 72 degrees)
- flake food for guppies, dried blood worms for the frogs
