Hola estudiantes y padres:
This blog is a very important tool for you and your parents. This blog will help parents, students and me to keep in touch and informed easily. 

I will post information about what we do everyday in class, as well as assignments: hw, test, project, portafolio, etc...


We will be using our electronic device for academic purpose some times. We will be using to play Kahoot or other website. 
What is Kahoot:
Kahoot! is a free game-based learning platform that makes it fun to learn – any subject, in any language, on any device, for all ages! 

I know my students love to use their device but we need to follow some instructions. Please, first ask permission to your parents to bring your phone or I pad. In order to use Kahoot often, students you need to follow teachers' instruction. Please do not use a nick name or emoji. Use your first name. If someone does not follow the instructions I am forced to cancel this activity.

LUNCH TIME: FOR MY 3th  PERIOD : A Reminder of the following cafeteria etiquette:

1.  Remain seated during lunch. Do not seat in other table


         2.   Make no attempts to pop plastic bags, clap, chant, or sing “Happy Birthday.”
 3.   Clean up behind themselves.
        
4. No horse playing and no sharing seats

    *** If you don't follow these simple etiquette, I will be force to assign seats to some of you*** ( I really don't want to do it)
