In case of weather related distance learning, packets will be sent home in advance when possible. If no packets are available, googleclassroom has a week's work at a time. Googleclassroom can be opened by opening a new tab in google; clicking on the nine boxes (waffle) in the upper right hand corner; select account and have your student input their number @shafferschool.com. This should access their google school account and a green blackboard for googleclassroom should show up. Many assignments are each day during the week, so not just the assignment that is due that day. For example, daily reading log, xtra math, daily math, spelling games, and read live are a daily activity. If you can't get on googleclassroom- please read, read, read - use epic or readlive (acct. # 00058906); work on xtra math or times table facts, and spelling words. Epic is accessed at getepic.com code zzb5913. Xtra math, prodigy, and readlive are accessible from the student tab on the the web page. Spelling words are updated weekly on this page. Take care, stay safe and warm. Together we can do this.
I will zoom at 11 am if there is no school. Here is the link:
Homework will not be sent back and forth this year. Spelling words will be posted and tests will be given on Fridays. Spelling packets will be done in class. Please practice the words at home. We will be doing the Accelerated Reader program this year and students will have a required amount of points to earn by reading books and passing comprehension tests. Please read 20 minutes a day in order to meet the reading goal. You can use epic (getepic.com) and the class code zzb5913 to access digital books if you prefer. Lastly, please practice multiplication flash cards - times tables are supposed to be memorized by the end of 3rd grade.
