World Math Day 2011

World Math Day will be on March 1st this year. If you have not heard about it before, visit the official website: www.worldmathsday.com.

If you are in Grade 2, then you will learn about World Math Day in Computer class. You will be given your own username and password to go onto the site for practice anytime this month. If you are in Grades 3-5 you will get your sign-in details from either Ms Suk or your classroom teacher.

Grade 1 students will not spend any Computer class time playing the game, but if you are interested, you may have an adult help you sign-up at home and play whenever you wish outside of school time.

If you have your username and password already, click on ‘Sign In’ at the top of page. Then click on ‘Play Now’. Choose your level and begin! The site will then search around the world for who else in your age category is online at the exact same time, and you will compete against them by answering simple basic facts problems for 60 seconds.

Here is what it looks like when you are in the middle of a 60 second game. 3 strikes (wrong answers) and you're out!

It is just practice until 1 March. But it is so much fun! When it is 1 March your games and scores count toward the total for you, your class, and your school, and it is possible to win prizes.

Enjoy playing!

Grade 2 MS Word test

Graded papers went home in the last two weeks showing your test on formatting in MS Word. The test required the students to copy a sentence, then to change the font, size and color of text, and add a picture. The test was primarily on following instructions, and we completed the test together as a class, one step at a time. It was a great test of patience for us, wasn’t it Grade 2? Results from this test contribute toward the Computer grade for the Quarter 2 report cards.

In Grade 2 we are working on saving our documents to our USB flash drives. However we will not be graded on this, it is just good practice for next year, and it will be nice to have some evidence of our time in Computer class to take home with us at the end of this school year!
