News From Room 16

  • -Thank you so much for your patience and understanding during these times of uncertainty.  I will do my best to stay in constant communication with all of you using my classroom website and Google Classroom.  Please keep in mind that this is new for all of us, and I am learning something new each day how this might work in the event that we do use distance learning.  This week is kind of a trial run, and all of the work on Google Classroom and the homework page is OPTIONAL.  Please stay safe and take care of your family!

    -During Spring Break your child can work on some of the websites below.

    Readworks.org - The class code is 2427ZN.  I will assign a few stories that your child can read and answer comprehension questions during the break.

    getepic.com-  The class code is vlb8622.  Your child can enjoy many different genres and titles of books!

    Iknowit.com (Instructions are on Google Classroom)  The class code is Panther16.  Your child's username is their first name and last initial (all lower case and no spaces).  Your child's password is their first and last intial (lower case no space).  The link is on my Learning Links page, and I have assigned several math assignments.

    prodigygame.com-  I have assigned test prep practice, and the students LOVE this website to practice their math concepts.  If your child does not have his/her username and password, send me an email, and I will get it to you.  Your child can also access this website from the link on my Learning Links page.

    -Please make sure that you initial your child's Homework cover sheet each night and help your child to remember to bring in his/her math homework each day.  The spelling activities can all be turned in on Friday as well as the reading activities.  

    -Scholastic Book Orders- If you could please order online, that would be greatly appreciated.  Simply click on the Scholastic Book Clubs link on my Learning Links page and enter the class code which is Q8QXK.  Place your order and pay online, and your child's books will be sent to the school.  This is a great way for your child to obtain books that they are interested in and build their library at home!
