Computer Lab

Wednesday's are our math day in the computer lab.  When we get into the lab, the first item on the agenda is completing an xtramath.org exercise.  We have a reason to celebrate!  Two of my students finished the multiplication portion of xtramath today!

These two students will receive a bead for their Outdoor School necklace, a Bullpup brag, AND a token for a free ice cream cone from Dairy Queen!  OH, not to mention.... they do not have xtramath for homework ANYMORE!

Our next order of business, is to work on khanacademy.org.  I am trying to build incentives into this, so I have told the kids that for every 5 skills that are mastered, they will receive a bead for their Outdoor School necklace.  The student with the most mastered skills, so far, has 65!  He will be receiving at least 13 beads for his necklace!

Remember, your child can work on khanacademy at home and from 7:00 - 8:00 in our computer lab Monday - Friday!
