Dear students and parents,
Practice for World Math Day has begun! Your children each have a unique username and password pasted into their student planner so they can log into the World Education Games site and practice anytime!
Click the ‘Login’ button in the top right corner.
Type in your username and password. Click ‘login’ again.
Now you can click on your ‘avatar’ to change your appearance, or choose a level to start a new practice game! You play in real-time against other children from around the world in your age group (4-7 years).
I suggest you start at Level 1, and once you’ve played ten or more games at that level you can choose if you want to stay there or move to the next level. It’s up to you! Careful though – 3 strikes and you’re out of the game, so type carefully.
All games played prior to Wednesday 6th March are considered practice games. Games played on Wednesday 6th March are counted towards total points for our school, and there is the possibility of prizes. I believe only the first 10 games at each of the five levels count on the day. Please read the ‘Rules’ on the site if you want to know more. Certificates of Participation will be issued to anyone who completes at least one game on the official World Math Day.
Playing on the World Education Games site is so fun and addictive! Not to mention great for basic math fact recall. Practice makes perfect.
Please play a few games at home when you can between now and the end of the week. I will check your progress!
PS: Your sign in details will also work for World Spelling Day and World Science Day, however that is not a focus for our class, so it’s up to you if you want to try those.
It has been an eventful week with the Loy Krathong festivals at this time of year. Your homework for this week is to write about Loy Krathong and have an adult help you type it onto this website. You can write about a school or other event. Perhaps you will write about making your krathong in Thai class, a game you played at school on Friday, or floating your lantern in the sky.
- Choose what event (or part of it) that you will write about
- Write at least 3 detailed sentences using describing words in your Homework book
- Have an adult help you type your recount on this page as a comment
- Hand your homework book in at school by Thursday 6th December
If you are unable to access the internet at home, please bring me your Homework book with your written sentences early next week for me to help you at school.
I have written my recount about the Loy Krathong festival at MBC on Wednesday below.
