Ms. Dobbs's First Grade

Learning together while we are apart!

And the winner is.......LEEUM!

Last week, I challenged each of you to complete 100 minutes of Lexia last week. Congratulations to Mia, Damian, Kawainohia, and Leeum. I gave the wheel a spin, and Leeum is this week's winner of a set of magnetics.


This week's challenge is to complete 60 minutes of Lexia and have your parents send me a picture on their phone of one activity you completed. It might be the question of the day or even this week's drawing project. You can text your entries to 208 421-0669. The contest ends on Friday, April 24th. This week's winner will win some drawing paper and a set of markers! Good Luck!

zearn.org

This is a great math site! I can't add it to our clever site....but you just need to go to www.zearn.org


Unfortunately this requires a new username and password, but I made them super easy. In fact your username is your first name and last name together (case sensitive).

Example: Anthony's user name is : AnthonyAndrade

Your password is the same one you use to login to google or clever.

There were only a few kids who had to have a different username, because someone else already took it. Those kids are:


Khloe: Username: KhloeMcConnell3

Leeum: Username: LeeumBlanc

Damian: Username: DamianPluff2

Hunter: Username: HunterStewart34


You will need to type in our class code: GA9D7B



If you can't logon, please, please get in touch with me!

How does my child get in to Isation?

Ok....I finally figured this one out.

The first step is to install Istation on your home computer or phone. This is a quick and easy process. Go too www.istation.com/IstationHome You will need to click on the download and technical blue tab on the top right hand corner and follow the instructions.

Now your child should be able to go into Clever...tap the app....and it might take a minute, but now they won't need to sign in! They are now set up to do Istation (reading and math)


Here are some suggestions for your child to do this week:

Isation (on Clever)

Lexia (You will need my home email address ...dobbs4@cableone.net) (0n Clever)

Zearn (Math) www.zearn.org

Scholastic is a great site (on Clever)
