What do we know about Chinese Culture?

As part of their Comparing Cultures unit, second graders at RES learned about different aspects of Chinese culture including education, food, the arts, language, celebrations, and clothing.  Miss Darling's class put together this Voicethread slideshow with text, audio, and video comments about what they learned. We hope you enjoy it!

Fastt Math #resvt

March 20, 2017

Dear Second grade families,

I am sending home information regarding the Fastt Math online computer program with your child today. Students have experienced Fastt Math in the classroom, practiced logging on and completed lessons. Attached to the letter explaining Fastt Math is your child’s login and password information.
This is NOT required for homework! Students will have time throughout their days to complete the required 6 lessons a week. If your child would like to complete more lessons at home, they are more than welcome to, but it is not required. Please note that students are only allowed to complete two lessons a day, so if your child already completed their lessons at school, they will only be allowed to play games.
If you have any questions regarding Fastt Math, have trouble logging in at home or any other questions, please don’t hesitate to ask.

Take care,
Kristin Darling

Kahoot! #resvt

On Thursday Ms. Thompson led us in a math review with an online created quiz called Kahoot! Ms. Thompson created the online quiz for students to review the math concepts, how many more and subtraction facts! Students had to solve problems and then click the corresponding shape on their screen. It was loads of fun and students had terrific strategies for solving problems! You can create you own quizzes online at Kahoot!.
