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!

A New Word Jumble

Thursday, February 23rd, 2012

Evert time the “Can Dos” have a long weekend, or a school break, the best word to describe their first day back to class…tough.

On days like this, mostly all of the boys and girls have a hard time settling in and paying attention.

Miss Pat tries to have new word exercises every day so the “Can Dos” can build their vocabulary, but after a school break, she needs to use word games to get and hold their attention.

So  here is the word game, a word jumble to be exact, that Miss Pat gave the class to do.

Why not print the word jumble and see how you do?



A Math Quiz

Friday, February 17th, 2012

It was the day before a 3-day weekend. The “Can Dos” were having a hard time focusing on school work. Most were thinking about what they were going to do with three days off!

Miss Pat had already reviewed what President’s Day was all about. They spent time talking about George Washington and Abraham Lincoln and all that they did for America.

So…now what thought Miss Pat. Then she remembered the math game she put on the computers.

“Class,” said Miss Pat, time for a math quiz.” Several of the “Can Dos” let out groans and moans.

“That’s enough,” said Miss Pat. “Go to your computers and let’s get started. Today’s math quiz is about the 2x table and adding one.”

Why don’t you play along. Just go to the “Can Do” Club House, choose games and choose times table +1.

Good luck with the math quiz!
