Week of June 1

Here are some new videos to check out:

One of the important words in the first video is PAUSE. What's another

word for pause? Can you think of other times it's important to pause 

before you make a choice?


An important word in this next video is BALANCE. Why is that important? How do you balance activities in your day? In what other classes at school do you hear the word "balance"?


This last video has a long title: "Keeping Games Fun and Friendly".

Can you think of another title that would be good for this video?


You've done these 4 things when you use tech devices. But did you know these words? They are good to know, and good to use. 

Watch the video below:
