Our new TV!!

The Pleasant Street PTO purchased and installed a new TV in our classroom recently. It sure is a step up from the circa 1970’s TV we had that used dials to change the channels. Needless to say, we are super excited to use it with my laptop and a document camera to enrich our lessons. OUR PTO ROCKS!!!image

Some Math Games

We incorporate hands-on games and activities everyday in Math. The students really love the chance to work with a partner and having fun while practicing their Math skills. To improve other skills, consider going to the website of Helix Jump game since they offer a lot of engaging mind games.

We chose a variety of games to play, we have some board games and looked for good truth or dare questions online to incorporate math equations as dares. It´s fun while still learning and helps the students to feel more comfortable with each other and the subject.
