**All students K-12 now have access to their g-mail school accounts - be on the look-out for an email from Mrs. James - please reply by Monday, March 30th at 2pm so that I know you received the email and understand the directions below regarding what to do for our class. Also, please let me know if you do NOT have internet access.
Please let me know if you have any questions:)
1. Students should continue to work on their Lexia PowerUp Literacy lessons at https://www.lexiapowerup.com/ (or you can download the iPad app). Directions for accessing Lexia at home are below. Try to aim to meet or beat your weekly online usage target in all 3 areas - I will be checking:) AT THE VERY LEAST, ALL STUDENTS SHOULD BE WORKING IN EACH AREA FOR 35-45 MINUTES PER WEEK (depending on what your individual targets are).
PARENTS: As stated in the directions below, please do not provide your child with help while using Lexia PowerUp at home other than encouraging them to meet or beat their weekly usage target.
2. All students have mastered the 72 Essential Sight Words for reading. Those students still working on mastering these words for Spelling (or for those that just want to practice:), please continue practicing on SPELLING CITY (in the left hand column, click on Interactive Websites, then click on the Symbaloo link, then click on the Spelling City icon OR go to https://www.spellingcity.com/users/kjames2).
Let me know if you want a copy of your individual list(s). Due to the new student privacy laws, individual student lists can no longer be posted online. To practice, you will now click on GAMES for "Essential Sight Words A->M" and "Essential Sight Words M->Y." Once you have mastered these 2 lists, please work on the "Additional Sight Words" list. Whenever you feel you are ready, you can test yourself using the "Spelling TestMe" game. Try to aim for 75%-80% correct:) Feel free to send me an email telling me how you are doing on SpellingCity (for example, % correct on a game or test:) - you can also send me a screenshot.
- Also below are directions for accessing e-books and audiobooks for FREE using the SORA app.
