It might have been a short week, but it’s been a busy week! We took some time to examine a few online resources, all of which can be accessed from home, and I want to share with you. Login information for each is written on their printed newsletter that came home on Friday.
The first is enVision Math. This is the online resource for our math curriculum. After logging in, students and parents can view the instructional video from the day. To access it after logging in, click on the “Explore” button on the right side of the banner. From there click on topic, and then select the lesson. Students (and parents) can also access the book once logged in.
Next is MyOn. This is a free ebook site! On Thursday students took an interest inventory and placement test. Books were then recommended for them that are appropriate to their level and of interest to them. After reading a book students take a brief, 5 question, comprehension quiz. I am able to access and analyze their reading data. Login as your child and you can see their data, too. Video and print tutorials for MyOn can be found here: http://prodev.myon.com/at-home/get-started
Last is Typing Club. This is a keyboarding site, which steps students through learning to keyboard, including graphics which show the correct finger placement and usage. This program retains student progress if logged into with their District Google credentials.
Here's what we're learning about next week:
- Reader’s Workshop: Understanding figurative langage
- Writer’s Workshop: Putting together all the pieces that go into personal narrative writing
- Math: 3-digit addition and subtraction with regrouping.
Please remember that my door is always open if you have any questions or concerns. I also check email frequently. Together we are partners in your child’s education!
