This week is a short week we will not have class on Friday, Statehood day, so make sure you enjoy your extra day off!
Classes will begin having PE this week. Please make sure students wear closed toe shoes and bring plenty of water. Our class will have PE this week on Thursday August 16, 2018.
In class and at home this week we will begin to work with some of the online programs that we will use this year. This week students will be introduced to IXL, Typing Club and iReady, followed by 2 additional programs next week, Freckle and Prodigy. Please note that the iReady program will only be used for diagnostic tests unless your child needs additional assistance, if this is the case I will notify you and we will develop a learning plan together.
Before asking students to use each program I will model and cover expectations with them in class. In addition I will be sending home a printout detailing information to help you and your child locate and log onto the programs so please check your students take home folder for this information. Direct links to each site can also be found here on our classroom Weebly. Student username and passwords for each program will also be located in their take home folders.
You will also notice an OPTIONAL assignment area located at the end of the weekly homework section. These assignments are for fast finishers looking to extend and enhance their weekly homework assignments.
All weekly assignments are due by Monday August 20, 2018
