For winter break I will be sending five new apps to your iPad for you explore. This is not required homework, they are fun educational apps for extra enrichment. Trust me, you will love them!
This week we will celebrate 'Hour of Code' with thousands of others across the world. We will be coding hands on with the Osmo's! You will control Awbie, a playful character who loves delicious strawberries. With each coding command, you guide Awbie on a wondrous tree-shaking, strawberry-munching adventure!
This week we signed into your Google Drive accounts, this is where you will be keeping a record of your work throughout your time here at KISJ. Please make sure to update and upload your work weekly.
When you finish all 18 levels of Math Planet Grade 2 (remember to have 3 stars on each level), please email me and I will deploy Math Planet Grade 3 onto your iPad. Once you are done with Grade 3 I will give you Grade 4! Keep up the hard work!
