Learn at Home

  • Hi Everyone!! 

    I hope you are staying healthy and busy this week! 

    I wanted to give you more suggestions and options for things you can be doing to learn at home this week. 


  • Parents: 

    All students should know their log-in information for all of these sites. If they don't remember, send me an e-mail (mary.bair@d11.org) and I will send them their log-in information. 

    Comcast is offering now their Comcast Essentials reduced internet program for free for two months because of COVID-19. D11 families may click here to access that information.

     

    I have found an application online that will allow video conferencing for multiple students that is free. If you are interested, I am here and would love to help! 

     

    Things to do for math: 

     

    If you chose not to do the choice boards

    You should be working on something in math everyday

    Freckle: 

    -You can always practice your facts

    -Practice the Adaptive Math Paths (Parents: these are leveled based on how the kids answer, so they should be able to do it all on their own)

     

    Prodigy:

    -I have updated this to be practicing problems for the CMAS test- of you get stuck and want help, send me an e-mail!

     

    Lumos Learning: 

    Take the math practice test, or do some of the lessons (parents: this is a great way to see what the kids are expected to know for CMAS) Click here

     

    Work Books: 

    I know many of you took your workbooks home, pick a couple of pages a day and practice! 

     

    Other: 

    If you want a challenge problem or something specific to work on, write me! 

    Things to do for ELA/Social Studies

     

    If you chose not to work on the D11 Choice Boards

     

    Freckle: 

    I put in a few assigned readings, or you can read and answer questions

    There are a TON of articles on the American Revolution-- if you want to find out more!

     

    Lumos:

    READ:

    I know many of you took books home- if you are reading something wonderful, tell me about it! If you didn't bring a book home, D11 has given each child access to the Pikes Peak Library District online. More information here: https://www.d11.org/PowerPass
