2nd Grade Receives iPads

Mrs. Henrichs and her second-grade class purchased two iPads and covers with a grant from the Cissna Park Education Foundation.

Throughout their reading block, students have the opportunity to work on their spelling words on an app called Spelling City, they can also work on many other phonics and literacy apps to help build their reading skills.

According to Mrs. Henrichs, “We also use our iPads during our math block.” She added that “We have many different apps that help students build problem-solving skills; there are also apps that help the students work on building up their fluency with math facts.”

In the months of April and May, students will be conducting a few research projects. They will be using the iPads to search for information regarding their research projects.
