Students are expected to work for 30 minutes a day in MindPlay. They should be completing these lessons independently, as it adapts to their level.


In order to complete the lesson, students need to click the "Open MindPlay" link inside the course and actively work for 30 minutes in MindPlay before marking the lesson complete in the OLS.

Kindergarten-2nd Grade

This year Kindergarten-2nd grade will focus on literacy. Our goals are to instill a love of reading and learning to our students, as well as work to get students reading on grade level by the end of 2nd grade. I will hold an optional, live 15-minute class Monday-Thursday at 11:00am, and read a book aloud to the students.
