Our interactive classroom continues to be a fun and exciting adventure each day! This month we've enjoyed learning how to use our Activotes! Each student has their own handheld device in which they can register their answer on their Activote. This allows every student to participate in learning! We've also been live iChatting with our new friends in Gretna, Nebraska each Friday! We're learning how different the weather is and lots of neat stuff about Nebraska!
