Kahooting and Kidblogging

Are you ready to Kahoot! today? 

Kahoot! Activity: Vocabulary Review  Your Flocabulary vocabulary quiz has been rescheduled for tomorrow, Thursday, September 14. Let's report to Kahoot! to prepare and have fun reviewing your vocabulary words! 

I would encourage you to continue studying by reviewing your digital flashcards below.   




KidBlog: Getting Started  Mr. McGinty has a blog. Shouldn't you have a blog of your own? Today each of you will have the opportunity to set up your very own blog using the site Kidblog



After arriving at the site, click on "Students" in red, and then I will provide you with your class code. 

Next, try signing up by linking your Google account. Once you're logged in and if you have time, try making your first blog post. Entitle it "About Me" and introduce yourself to your community of fellow bloggers. Without using your last name, tell your readers about yourself, your background, your interests, your values, your passions, your dreams, etc. Have fun! 

We will hopefully be using KidBlog a lot this year, as a way to express ourselves, improve our writing, and connect with people from around the world. In fact, on Friday you will be publishing your 100 Word Challenge stories on your newly created Kidblog.  

Homework  (1.) Read for at least 30 minutes at home each school night. (2.) Continue working on your 100 Word Challenge: Roald Dahl Inspired Story, which is due this Friday, September 16(3.) Study for tomorrow's Flocabulary vocabulary quiz! (4.) Time to order books as part of this week's Scholastic Book Order is running out. Get your order in by Friday.
