ELA Looks Different This Year

This year I have three classes and Mrs. Bortner has the other set of three classes. We will be working together to create a cohesive alignment of structure while working on learning targets to get your students reading for high school! We are excited to be on this journey together.

How to Help Your Child be Successful

  1. Make sure your child is using a planner for due dates and planning out their weekly work. This year we are using Google Classroom instead of Schoology for ELA.

  2. Check their planner to see if there is anything that is coming up they may need to work on to turn in.

  3. Assignments will be posted in Google Classroom and in Infinite Campus as quickly as possible so you know how your student is doing.

  4. If you have questions, please feel free to send me an email or call ext 315. I am here for you and your child.

Technology sites we will be using:

  • Flowcabulary.com - You will start seeing this on a weekly basis. This will be a "Work At Your Own Pace" but if you student needs more structure - they should complete ONE section on a daily basis to be done by the end of the trimester.

  • Quill.org

  • Biblionasium

  • IXL - this will happen often!

  • KahnAcademy

  • FreeRice.com (A fun game where correct answers funds feeding people.)

  • Writewellapp.com (A template to use when writing the essay for those who are needing a little bit of help getting started.)

  • Prowritingaid.com (Similar to Grammerly but on steroids.)
