Solids elementary app
This is an app that parents and educators can use to support their children learning about 3D shapes. Children often find 2D easier to grasp as they have difficulty visualising a 3D shape. This app is perfect to help children understand what makes a solid shape. Here is a great link to a video that shows you how to use the app: http://vimeo.com/49236015
This is also a great app to help children classify and sort shapes. Happy learning!
Today was certainly one of those days. A day when the weather was dreadful and the wind made the kids crazy. We have all had them. Days when you find yourself counting to ten, breathing just that little bit deeper and finding the nearest cupboard to silently scream. As I left work today, all that was racing through my head was negativity. I had to tell myself STOP- that thinking is not helping. Sure it was a challenging day. But tomorrow may not be. I am still going home to a warm house where I can find time to chill. I hope today that all of you out there take the time to stop, adjust your thinking and be grateful for what you have.
App of the week: operation maths
This app is a must for parents. It targets a variety of age groups. It also helps children to revise their addition, multiplication, division and subtraction facts. Essentially, children complete missions after choosing an operation like addition. The game promotes speed as well as accuracy. New levels become available as the children improve. The added benefit is the mission information takes place around the world! So give it a go.
Annette and I are very excited to announce the opening of our Teachers Pay Teachers store. Affordable and quality resources for students and educators are important. We think that we will bring something new to the market. Our store address is:
Parents are essential in any learning journey so join us as our market for parents grows and develops.
