I wanted to write a quick little mid-week blog to let you know about couple of happenings in our classroom…
First off, thank you to everyone who ordered Scholastic books through our class page. I am in charge of the Scholastic order for all three first grade classes this year. Every book that is ordered builds points for the classes, which I use to order copies of books for the classroom. With the points I had built up from our most recent order and a few left over from last year, I was able to order 39 books for the first grade classrooms! Many times, I use these points to buy duplicates of popular titles so that more students can read these popular titles at the same time. If you want to make an order for this upcoming order, please log onto our class page by October 25th and click on the Scholastic button. Our classroom code for the year is L44LX.
I have had a few questions about the ipad donation for the first grade. We are waiting to order the ipads until we have raised $100/per student. The office is ready to receive the donations, feel free to send checks through the orange folder or drop off in the office with Ms. Kirch. Checks can be made out to QAE. I am attaching an inspiring article found by Ms. Meck about a school with one to one ipads.
Thank you for your support,
