Hoping you are all well and safe. I am thinking of you all and miss the students very much. Please give them my love and tell them I am thinking of them and I am here if you should need anything. I thought I would do a few more things to help our little ones with math and literacy. I have entered all the students into Zern and will put their usenames/passwords for you to log in. You will only have to enter the class code once the first time you enter the site. IPlease remember that your child has been bringing home math games the whole year and these will REALLY come in handy now for skill review! In addition, I will write up a lesson plan for you for the week to help you with reading ideas and you can follow the ideas at home. 🙂
