Do you have a minute? Timed Flash Cards

Want to improve your math skills? Then head over to Vector Kids and practice with their timed flash cards. It only takes a minute. Practice every day and I bet you will improve your skills quickly.

You can choose... 
  • addition
  • subtraction
  • multiplication
  • division
A great way to check your progress would be to graph it. I will add a graph as soon as I find one.


Click on either picture to get started.


Click on the picture to play.

Do you like word games? If you do, I think you will like "Dunk-a-Duck". It's very much like hangman except a duck gets dunked. It's your job to keep this little guy dry. You will have lots of fun while practicing word skills and learning new vocabulary.

There are many categories to choose from. You can start off playing with "school" vocabulary but check out some of the others too.

Token Store Wish List

Click on picture and choose download to print.
Students here's your chance to help me choose items for the Token Store. 

     Let me know what you would like to buy with your points. This "Wish List" can be given to me until February 2012. It can be filled out individually or by an entire class. Just print it, fill it out, and get it to me.

Here's a couple of hints...
  1. Try to choose items $10.00 and under. You will have more of a chance of seeing your item in the store.
  2. If you know what store sells your item let me know. I won't have to spend a lot of time looking around for it.
  3. If you want a certain color mention it.
  4. If you need a certain size tell me.
  5. Do not include items such as weapons, inappropriate movies or games, or things that are seriously sharp such as darts. I will not buy these things.
  6. Gift cards will be bought in $5.00 increments. Let me know which stores you would like me to purchase them from. These will be 800 pts. each.
  7. Don't yell out in the hall telling me what you want. I will probably forget. Write it down on this "Wish List"!
Remember...just because an item is on your list does not mean it will be in the store the next week. I try to buy items when they are on sale so we get the most "bang for our buck". If your item is very expensive, an iPod for example, I will not be able to buy it.

Any questions about items please ask Ms. Bolotin or Mr. Payne.

Happy Token Store Shopping to All

Sincerely...Ms. Bolotin
