Signs Game

Tuesday, January 17th, 2012

Miss Pat and signs games

Miss Pat wasn’t sure that the “Can Dos” understood some of the signs they see on the street.

She decided to make a matching game out certain signs and signs of things that can help keep the “Can Dos” safe.

Why not see how you do playing the signs matching games?

To play along with the “Can Dos” just go to the “Can Do” Street Club House, click on games and choose “signs.”

Why Does Willie Almost Always Win at Checkers?

Wednesday, January 11th, 2012

There was a checkers contest at the community center and Willie beat everyone who played against him!

How did he beat every one of his friends at checker? When asked by a group o the “Can Dos” who lost to him,  Willie told them that he played checker often and that was why he was so good at it. Well, just as he was saying that, Grandpa Dooley walked by and heard what he said.

“Willie,” said Grandpa Dooley, “Why don’t you share how you really got so good at playing checkers”? “Oh, do I have to,” said Willie. ” No,” said Grandpa Dooley, “But it would be the fair thing to do.”

“Okay, ” said Willie, “Grandpa Dooley found me a computer game that lets me practice checkers any time I want to. I play against the computer and that can be tricky.”

The “Can Dos” all asked him to show them the game. Grandpa Dooley offered to install the game on the computers at the community center if Miss Sue agreed it was okay to do.

Why don’t you take a look at the game with the “Can Dos”? Why not play a game or so?

Just go to the “Can Do “Club House and choose the balloon that says more games, then click on draughts and checkers.

Have fun!

The Word Jumble

Sunday, January 8th, 2012

Well, the second day back to school was not much better than the first. So, Miss Pat decided it was another day for making a game out of learning, this time for spelling and vocabulary using a word jumble.

She chose a word jumble for them to do, hoping this would get their attention and they would learn and have fun while learning.

“The first three of you to finish the jumble correctly will not have any homework tonight.” Don’t shout out when you are finished the jumble, just raise your hand and I will come over and check your work,” said Miss Pat

Miss Pat handed out the jumble and the room got quiet. Soon Orrie’s hand went up. Then Maria raised her hand and then Yundi. Sure enough, they all had the jumble right! No homework for them.

Why don’t you see how you do with the jumble?
