Holiday Gifts for Classrooms!

If you would like to provide a gift from your family to ours,  Longfellow Elementary, let me share some ideas:

1.  Read a book to the class

2.  Purchase your child's favorite book for the class

3.  Volunteer to sing songs or make an art project  with the children 

4.  Purchase a favorite CD of songs for children 

5.  Buy a safe small plant  ( no spines)  for the classroom.  Preschool classrooms must have three live potted plants in the room.  Lowes has some indoor tiny plants for $3.00 each.  

6.  Make playdoh for the classroom

Thank you for you continued support!

Code.org

Parents:

 

Have you heard about Code.org.  Two weeks ago, they announced the first new Hour of Code activities from dozens of partners. Now, they're excited to share a brand new activity from Code.org and Microsoft, Minecraft: Hero’s Journey! Introducing the Minecraft Agent, students write code to instruct the Agent to execute commands and overcome in-game obstacles. Using the Minecraft world they know and love, students of all ages and experience levels can learn how to use loops, debugging, functions, and problem-solving to achieve their goals. If you’ve used a previous Hour of Code Minecraft activity, this new one provides a perfect way to expand your students’ knowledge of computer science. The learning doesn’t end there: students can import their code into Minecraft: Education Edition to bring their own creations to life in the real game. And of course, Minecraft Designer and Minecraft Adventurer are always available to play!

Played around the world 70 million times, over the last two years students have used the Minecraft tutorials to build new worlds and bring them to life over a single hour.  ** 4 year old children can participate with support in several of the activities.  Enjoy!


 

The Milestone Tracker!

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has launched
the Milestone Tracker, a free application (app) for tracking a child’s
development in a fun and easy way. The app adds to the suite of free,
family-friendly materials available through the CDC Learn the Signs, Act
Early program available at https://www.cdc.gov/ncbddd/actearly/index.html.
 
The Milestone Tracker provides a way to document developmental
milestones, recognize delays, and share information with health care
providers. The new app offers:
 
 Interactive milestone checklists for children ages 2 months
through 5 years, illustrated with photos and videos
 Tips and activities to help children learn and grow
 Information on when to act early and talk with a doctor about
developmental delays
 A personalized milestone summary that can be easily shared
with the doctor and other care providers
 Reminders for appointments and developmental screening
 
Additionally, health care providers can use the app to help with
developmental surveillance as recommended by the American Academy of
Pediatrics, and early care and education providers can use it to better
understand students’ skills and abilities, and to engage families in monitoring
developmental progress.
 
Learn more and get information on downloading the app on the
CDC Milestone Tracker Mobile App Web Site
