Today we learned about tools and how they can be helpful to us during math. Each child got a tool kit today to keep their tools in. Ask your child about theirs and the tool that they got today!
Today we also took out the iPod touches for the 1st time. We talked a lot about my expectations for how they should unhook them, carry them, and use them. We learned about the home button and that each little picture is called an app. Today just to get everyone use to how they work we used the note app and wrote our names, words we knew, etc. Some of the kiddos even started to write notes to each other. It was great to see the excitement and you could have heard a pin drop with the exception of the sharing of sentences. Some of the kiddos even figured out how to get their screens to flip horizontally. I'm excited to see what the future will bring with these wonderful tools in our classroom. The best part is, as of right now, we have 15 students and 15 iPods, so everyone has their own! Totally awesome!!!
