Hi Everyone! We made it through our first week! Again, next week I will not only be assigning through Readworks but also on Epic and assigning lessons to do in the textbook. I will also start to be putting grades in for our third trimester. 

Please make sure that once you have completed your reading on readworks that you hit submit. I see most of you have done that but there is a small few who I can see answered the reading questions but didn’t hit submit. If you have any questions or need help navigating the site, feel free to reach me anytime!

If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact me anytime :). 

Work for Tuesday, March 17th

This week we will have a review week. I will post new assignments each day.

Starting the week of March 23rd, I will assign more assignments in the students textbooks and worksheets. The class will also be getting social studies and science work to complete. I will also like to communicate by using google classroom. If anyone needs help logging on to the website, I will be here to help. Please do not hesitate to ask if you have any questions! We are in this together!! 🙂 

Math- Please have your child log onto their Mathletics accounts (using their username and password). I have assigned work for the class to complete. 

ELA-  Complete the following Readworks I assigned. Use the login information that I posted on my page from Friday to sign your child on. I also assigned the class a reading from Epic!. The following is instructions on how to log in to our class page.

  1. Then type my email: Mdavies@gscabk.org and password: Firstgrade
  2. Click on student/educator 
  3. Select their name and they’re in!

After reading the assigned reading-  Fast and Slow, please have your child write in their reading journal – 3 things that can move fast and slow. 

Religion- Write and draw a picture about a way you can show others God’s love. (This can be done on loose leaf paper, I will collect this once the class returns back to school.)

Mathletics and Readworks- will be turned in online and I will grade them once completed. All other assignments please have your child bring back to school and I will grade them once we return.’

 

Dear Parents,

In case of closure, I will be adding all assignments on my class page until further notice. Depending on how long we are out, we will begin using Google Classroom. To get to google classroom, your child will be given a gmail account. In Google Classroom I will assign daily ReadWorks and Mathletics assignments. The Mathletics app can be downloaded to a device or you can log onto the website from a computer. The username and password are attached to their take home folder and they are familiar with how to log on. They will be assigned work and I will see their scores when done. I will assign Readworks through google classroom as well. 

To use The ReadWorks instructions are below:

How to get students to their assignments

  1. Have students go to www.readworks.org/student
  2. Students enter class code ADGJ7D
  3. Tell your students that their default password is 1234

Note: Students can change their passwords when they log in, and you can change student passwords on this page.

On ReadWorks, you will be assigned readings and questions to answer. I will be notified of which students complete the assignments and the scores after completing the questions.If you have any questions, feel free to message me on Option C. I will be checking it frequently.

Thanks!

Mrs. Davies
