PVES Parent Newsletter
Each day, for the next two weeks, I will send out daily lessons for you to work with your child at home. Try to pace things out each day. By assigning and working over these next two weeks allows our county to apply for a waiver to the state avoiding making up these days in the summer.
Below is the daily assignments given by each grade level and specials class for Monday, March 16th. They will also reach out to you via email or APP used in class.
This link is to our website where you can download packets for each grade level.
-Two packets went home with your child on Friday – one filled with math and one filled with reading worksheets/activities. All of the worksheets in the calendar below refer to ones within these packets.
-Instructions for getting on iReady and IXL at home went home on Friday along with the packets. Student usernames and passwords also went home (in your child’s zipper pouch in his/her binder).

-3rd Grade Teachers
As you have heard, we will be e-learning for the next couple of weeks. Each student brought home an ELA and Math Packet in their binders last Friday. (Mr. P also sent the packets via email in case your child did not make it home with a packet.) Each day on Seesaw, we will post additional activities/assignments that we would like your child to complete. We can take grades on assignments that are completed at home during this time. We have not decided if we are going to do this yet, so please make sure you keep EVERYTHING your child completes in their binder to turn in when they return. Students will receive points for EVERYTHING completed online and at home for a reward when we return to school.
Students will need passwords for the following during this time. We will post assignments from:
· iready (Contact Mrs. Haynes, Mrs. Stout, or Mrs. Hager for passwords) https://login.i-ready.com/
· IXL (contact your child’s teacher for passwords) www.learningfarm.com
· Brainpop/Brainpop Jr – Username: cheathampve Password: brainpop
Students may have these passwords in their binders.
If you have a public library card, it would be helpful to sign-up for the FREE e-book loan service at
This will help the students READ each day. You can also get free e-books on many book apps like Kindle and GetEpic.
Please don’t hesitate to contact us with any questions!
Thank you so much,
The Fourth Grade Team

I have set up a google site where I will be uploading different videos over the next two weeks. There is already an introduction video uploaded, but more should be up over the next few days. The link is below.
Computer lab students can practice the following over break:
2nd, 3rd, and 4th grades can practice their typing skills in typing.com. They do not need to log in to their account in order to practice. They will just click on students and lessons.
Kindergarten and 1st graders can play math games in ABCya.com
Parent instructions to log on to i-Ready (our online program) at home –
1. Go to https://login.i-ready.com/
2. Click on the K-1 Card Login button
3. Use your child’s i-Ready log in card (in the zipper pouch of your child’s binder) to log your child in (your child knows how to log him/herself in at this point)
4. Click on the big green button that says “Next Lesson” to begin
5. After they complete the lesson, click on the “To Do” tab to continue to another lesson
Reading at home can make a huge difference!🙂
Choose books that are at an appropriate reading level for your child.
- Use the five finger rule. Open the book to any page and ask your child to read. Put up a finger every time your child does not know a word. If you have put up more than five fingers before the end of the page, this book may be too hard for your child.
- Choose books that match your child's interests and likes.
- Keep plenty of reading materials in your home: books, magazines, newspapers, and comic books. Children enjoy a variety of reading materials.
- HAPPY READING!
