Mr. Frank DeGrazio
My name is Frank DeGrazio and I have been a teacher and coach in the Yonkers Public Schools for 21 years. I am very happy to be part of the YMA family! My email is firstname.lastname@example.org. My availability for any help or questions will be Monday-Friday 8:00 am-11:00 am. Please email me any questions or concerns.
I have seen the number of users go up, thank you for helping your child complete the assignments. I would like to have everyone on Edmodo and Clever, all the information is on my home page. I am planning for this to be the norm for quite a while. Your continued cooperation is needed and appreciated. The district will be instructing us on how to move forward, and to be able to gather assignments so i can give the students grades. I will probably be using Edmodo for them to turn in work, so please log on.
I also want to be able to interact with the children. I feel its important that we see and talk to each other during these times. Once I get clearance on a platform, I will let you all know.
New Math Assignment is up on my page, scroll down and you will see Shapes and equal Parts, or got the assignments section and you can find it there.
There will be two quizzes the end of the week. More info to follow.
Again thank you for all your cooperation!
Please email me so I know you have seen this information!
More assignments coming shortly!

Once your on Clever goto my teacher page F. DeGrazio. Clever is a resource where you can find educational apps. We use the Discovery App in class to watch clips on certain topics. Also the KHAN Acedemy app can help with any topic in math. NEWSELA is a site that has a lot of great articles covering numerous topics. The articles come with questions and writing assignments. I will be using this at some point as well. I am going to use a few of the apps to supplement the work that I give the kids.
3. NEW! Edmodo.com Download the Edmodo App for your device, go to edmodo.com, or use the app on Clever. Sign up for an account, and use this class code: nusder I have put a post on our class page. This will be a great place where we can share pictures, and messages. I think its important to communicate with the students during this time. I will also post some assignments on there as well.
4. Please keep any work that your child does in a folder, and have them bring it back to school when they return.
