Hello Hornets! Hoping you are having a safe and relaxing time with family! We understand that this whole remote learning is new and somewhat overwhelming. We want to make sure that you receive the help you need. We know that text messaging is much easier as a means of communication than checking the blog. As a result, we’ve joined Remind. Remind is an app that allows us to send you announcements via text message! Both parents and students can sign up. Students will be able to send us messages via text about any questions that they may have. Here’s how to join: Core 1: text @elacore to the number 81010 Core 2: text @43k4b6 to the number 81010 Core 3: text @fb848b to the number 8101 PLEASE MAKE SURE YOU USE YOUR FULL NAME! No nicknames. If you use a nickname, we will not accept your request. We want to know who we are talking to 🙂 Once you send that message, we will receive your request and add you. Then, you will be able to text us your questions! I hope this helps!

As you know, starting Monday we will be assigning some classwork on Google Classroom. We understand that some of you may struggle with reading a little bit, so I am sharing a free extension that you can add to Chrome. This extension will allow it to read text on almost all web pages, even Google Docs. Follow the two steps below to add to your Google Chrome:
Once you download it, there should be a purple puzzle piece at the top right corner of your screen. When you first click on it, you would need to sign in. Use the sign in with Google button. When you need something read, click on the puzzle piece, highlight text you want to be read, and listen.
***If you had a document open before you downloaded the Read Write extension, you may have to refresh the page for it to work.
We hope you enjoyed the two snow days that we had!
Today it was back to business as usual! We continued talking about Bedouins today, and we watched two videos about them. Students completed a worksheet that went along with the video. I will link the videos and the worksheet so that you can access it if you were absent.
Welcome back and happy new year! We are excited to see you back with us and ready to learn!
As you know, reading NWEA is coming up next Monday. We have been practicing for NWEA in class for a while now. I am attaching a few links that will help you prepare for NWEA and review some skills that might be on the test.
Prep Dog: This website has NWEA type questions that will be very helpful to you. It allows you to answer questions and then check if you answered them correctly. Practice everyday a different test so you become familiar with NWEA questions you might see.
