4TH GRADE

4th Grade Virtual Learning

If your child needs to be quarantined at home, these are the learning platforms they will need to use for all virtual assignments:

Google Classroom with be used for attendance and for a link to the weekly Social Studies Newspapers. Individual usernames and passwords for Social Studies will be sent as needed via Dojo.

IXL.com

Students should know their usernames and passwords as they use IXL in the classroom, but we can send individual usernames and passwords via Dojo if needed.

Thelearningodyssey.com (referred to as Edgenuity, Pathblazer, or Odyssey)

Usernames are all first/last name with no space. Passwords are all Broncos2021. When logging on you will be asked for a school code which is MeadowISD

Students are practicing using these platforms in class, so in the event they need to stay home they should be familiar with all of them. We will also be giving students a list of usernames and passwords that they will keep in their purple folders.

ClassDojo

Our primary method of communication is ClassDojo. All virtual assignments will be posted on Dojo daily/weekly.

If you have any questions, please contact us via Dojo.

Thank you!
