Parent Letter

Dear Parents, 

This week we are switching assignments over to google classroom. All students can complete assignments and submit them online through google classroom. We will continue to have weekly spelling practices, WOW writing, ReadWorks, Freckle reading & math, and live sessions with Eureka math assignments and Literacy assignments. 

How to turn in assignments- When students are completing assignments they can edit the document and their work will save automatically. At the end of the week students can turn in their work to be graded. 

ReadWorks and Freckle- You can find the class code and passwords to ReadWorks and Freckle under the description of each assignment. Each website is linked with the assignment so students can access it easily. 

For the week of April 20th, I assigned two Freckle and two ReadWorks articles. Students can complete them in any order. For math this week students will continue to use freckle for practice and Eureka math during our live sessions.

Thank you!
