Our students will be engaged in a wide variety of activities that involve the following websites. Students will be required to access these sites quickly and know their usernames and passwords.
Google Classroom -- This website it used as a place to utilize "flipped" teaching. In other words, students will receive assignments via Google Classroom that require them to watch a video, read an article or research on the internet. They will then submit their work through the website for grading. As a parent you may sign up at any time to monitor their account. Please ask for details.
NewsELA -- With many thanks to our generous PTA, the 4th and 5th Graders will be using this online resource to read articles regarding current events and history. Your student will receive reading assignments tailored to his/her specific reading level. Teachers assign reading, quizzes and track progress.
Discovery Education -- This website allows students to search for videos that enhance the learning they are doing in class. At times, they may be required to watch these videos for homework. They can also be used as study tools to review content learned in class!
FOSSWeb -- This Website is brought to you by our FOSS Science Curriculum. Students will be able to read the text and complete activities online!
Typing Web -- This website tracks student practice on their keyboarding skills. It is an expectation that they practice this at least 3 nights a week.
Biblionasium -- This website allows students to engage with each other about reading. Students set goals, write reviews and recommend books to each other, while the teacher manages their progress.
