Math Video Tutorials

It has come to my attention that the cloud that stored all of my math tutorial videos dropped my account over the summer without my knowledge. I am so saddened to have lost the enormous amount of tutorial videos I had created last year!

Many of my links on the math pages do not work right now. The notes pages do still seem to be working.

I will do my best to remake some videos to help you through this module. Please let me know which lessons you are having difficulty with and I will focus on those lessons first. 🙂

Thank you for your understanding!

Today you watched a short introduction video about Ellis Island.

We will be learning a lot more about it in computer lab next week. 🙂

Post a comment and tell me something interesting that you learned from the video.

Also tell me one thing that you would like to learn more about.

We have been exploring the geography of New York using this interactive interface for instruction.

Be sure to ask your children all about what they have been doing. Also ask them to show it to you! They have their information on their password page of their agenda.

Do you need to change the language?

In order to reach all of the families of my students, I have added a translation button to my blog.

It is on the top right of all pages of this blog. You can change my blog into any language. Feel free to write me in your own language and I will translate it into English when I receive it.

I am hopeful that this will help us to keep our lines of communication open this year.

Summer Check In


I wanted to take a moment to check-in to see how everyone’s summer is going so far! It is going by so very quickly!!!!

I just returned from a trip up to Vermont and it was wonderful!!!! We went on an alpine slide down a huge mountain! There was also a mountain coaster that traveled down the mountain making huge turns and dips along the way!! It was so scary and fun at the same time!!!

Share something that you have done this summer!
