Type 2 Learn February 26, 2014

Filed under: Uncategorized — mkeough @ 2:21 pm

Dear Parents,

As you know, the 3rd, 4th, and 5th grades will be taking the Smarter Balanced Test this Spring.  This is only a practice test and we will not be receiving any scores back.  Students will be taking this test on the computer.  To help improve their computer and keyboarding skills, the district has asked us to regularly have students practice these skills using the Type 2 Learn program.  It would be a great help if students practiced these skills at home, as well.  I am attaching the directions to download the program on your home computers.  I encourage you to have your child practice at different times throughout the week. 

Please email me with any questions or concerns you may have.

Thank you!

Ms. Keough

Happy New Year!  I hope everyone had a nice, relaxing holiday break!!

I wanted to touch base on a couple of new thoughts and ideas in the new year.

First, it has been very difficult to keep up with posting homework on the blog each day.  I am very sorry about this.  There are just some days that are so busy, it is hard to remember.  It is my New Years resolution to be more on top of this.  :)  In case we do run into one of the busy days, or if I am not at school, students will have their homework written in their assignment books.  

Second, I will be posting updates each Friday on what we worked on throughout the week.  Please feel free to ask your child to tell you more about each of the new concepts we practiced.  

As always, please feel free to email me with any questions you may have.

Thank you so much!

Ms. Keough
