Today was the first day we were able to use the Chromebooks for our classroom. I received the 21st Century Technology Grant 3 years ago through Education Foundation. This grant equipped my classroom with a set of Chromebooks for the classroom, MimioVotes, an interactive projector, a document camera, and many other devices we will use throughout the year. I discussed with the students the importance of using the technology appropriately and purposefully as we experience all parts of fourth grade. The students were given the opportunity to set up their person account for their Chromebook and then take the STAR reading assessment. The students will use their Chromebooks to turn in assignments, practice concepts addressed throughout the day, and much more!
We also were able to learn about the word convey and review our base ten number system. The assignment notebook code for today will be the name of the place-value after the hundred-thousands.
