Exeter-Milligan IPOD

The Exeter-Milligan special education department received five ipods this year.  One of the apps that we use with the 8th grade and 10th grade special education students is the Flashcard app.  This is used to study their English vocabulary words.  The ipod makes it more interesting than using the traditional paper flashcards.  We also downloaded an app called Drivers Education that will assist students who will be getting their license or studying for Drivers Education class.  Other apps we have students use to help review skills include Algebra, Coin Math, Bills and Coins, Freddy Fraction, Count Coins, Apples in Hour Hands, Little Matchups Count Money, Pizza Fractions, States N Capitals, Capitals, Math Stripes, and Grammar Up.  If you have an ipod, check out these apps.  They are all free!

The signs are evidence that progress continues at the new Fillmore County Hospital in Geneva.  Outside the helicopter pad is ready, landscaping is complete and the new exterior signs are being completed.  The glass for the doorways is being installed and finish work continues inside.  The hospital expects to open its doors on March first, three months ahead of schedule.
