Introduced the kiddos to a new app today and they were mesmerized! Many of them began to understand how control and subtle movements had a big effect that they could add on to with another controlled movement. Others just went for it and made repetitive swooping motions . . . which were quite interesting as well. Next week they'll use them to learn how to email an attachment to themselves and then open it up on a PC and print it from there. That will be their first time using their own school email!!
Not sure which one belongs to who. Ask your child as they will know for sure.

How much longer 'til they're frogs?

It doesn't matter how many times I tell the children that it takes several months for the complete metamorphosis of a frog, they still ask. Perhaps that's because they change so much from day to day. They enter the classroom each day and make a bee line to the tank . . . are they frogs yet?
Not only are we learning loads about these amazing amphibians, we are also working on many multi-step projects that really encourage listening skills, creativity, writing, reading, art, and patience. Our fabulous frog folders are beginning to burst with froggy favorites.
