No Packets.Yeah!

Although I did not send any packets home, your child can still keep learning during the break. Please take advantage of all the sites, videos, etc.. your child can access at home!


They can write a post on Kidblog, do some coding, watch videos, read current events on Newsela, and take a quiz, check out the Weebly site, go on Sumdog and compete in math games, get on Dreambox(Math), watch a video on Brainpop, the list is endless.


We don't want them to spend all these days home doing absolutely nothing but playing video games, do we? :)

PLEASE read one of your child's blog posts!

I know we're all busy, but it would mean so much to your child if you would take a minute to read one of their posts and leave a comment. Send the link to friends, coworkers, relatives and have them comment too!


When your child has an audience for their writing, they write better!

Thank you if you have already done this!
