I know that this time is very difficult with this COVID-19. I would like to notify you of several things.

          1. If you are having trouble understanding anything the best thing for you to do is contact me. If we work together we can figure out a solution. 

          2. Every child has a clever log in and password. On clever, they can do the following:

                                                   A. Sumdog (Math)

                                                   B. RIVET and One More Story (the students can read stories from these APPs)

                                                   D.Mobymax.com (all subject areas. This website is differentiated to your child's level. They can work on all subjects areas. Please make                                                            sure they do phonics, spelling and reading comprehension first before any other.)

                                                   E. Typing.com (It is advisable to have your child practice his/her typing since they will need to utilize this skill next year.)
