Videos Backlog

Hiya Friends and Family,

Was going through our iPad and found a few videos that I hadn't posted yet, so here it is, a video clearinghouse! I'm also trying these out as YouTube videos, so I can embed them into the blog itself. I hope it makes things easier for you!

We also had the chance to walk up to the high school to see Spirit Series: The Story of Harriet Tubman, performed by fourth graders:




This is one of our Lego WeDo sessions here at YES, using the Lego WeDo kits supplied by Yarmouth Education Foundation and taught by Mrs. Wolinsky:




One of our new math games is called Salute!, and it helps us practice math facts.
Factor x Factor = Product

Happy February!
