3rd and 4th Grades & PARENTS!!!
Good Morning. I'd like to take this first day of our extened e-LEARNING to explain my page and how it will support your learning needs.
First, this page is not 'extra' work. My page is here to provide support for assignments assigned to you by your classroom teacher. These supports may include: accomodations such as multiplication and hundreds charts, support videos that provide additional information on the content your class is working on, support extensions and online practice. Your teachers may assign my page as part of your daily assignments, so please make sure you are accessing this page daily. 3RD GRADERS: SUPPORTS WILL BE LISTED UNDER THE GRADE LEVEL PAGE (LoGreco, Shimala, Harmon, Hernandez) starting tomorrow.
In addition, there are reading and writing supports available to you on your Chromebook. Your assignment today is to watch the attached videos and familiarize yourself with the features of these supports. If you work with me in a small group, these should be familiar to you. If not, here is your opportunity to familiarize yourself to them. These supports will be extremely helpful with reading and writing assignments. Snap&Read will also be very helpful with word problems on your Math assignments.
These extentions are found as icons on the upper right hand corner of your ChromeBook.
