Thursday, September 13th, 2012

gamesThe “Can Dos” were happy to be back in the computer lab with Miss Pat. They didn’t know it, but the Language Arts teacher asked Miss Pat to make some computer games out of vocabulary words.

Miss Pat Made up two matching games about fruits and vegetables most often eaten in the fall and the winter.

Why not play the games along with the “Can Dos” and see how you do?

Go to the Home page, to Club House and choose Games. Then choose Do You Eat and/or Fall and Winter Vegetables.

Have fun and good luck with the games!
