HEY KIDS! Would you like to get excited? Would you like to have some fun? How about playing a game? Here is a great game that you can play, http://www.askkids.com/games?gmid=11&pop=1 and click on the "Super Hyper Spider Typer". Click "how to play" to learn how to play the game. Then click on "start," choose "medium" level, and see how high a score you can get. If you're really good you can try the hard level!
Parents: As part of the Ontario Curriculum, by the end of grade one students are expected to know "how to spell some high frequency words correctly." You may want to help them with their spelling!
