Find iReady in your Clever account under ELA/Social Studies or Math. (Remember to click login with LDAP when logging into Clever.). I highly recommend signing up for one of the training sessions. This program is VERY user friendly. There are lessons intertwined with assessments. Take a look. I think you will really like it. I love it and am very excited that we have it. And the students are already rostered for us!

iReady printable packets:
If for some reason we are home longer than anticipated, our students may need new packet work. These links lead you to downloadable packets (with English or Spanish instructions) for math and reading. There are packets for grades K-8. I will be posting a link to these on our Montessori School 31 homepage if we ever do need them.

Great Minds is Eureka Math (our math program.) Right now they are posting video lessons for certain modules. Students may want to view these lessons to keep up with the Modules. This will only be useful if you happen to be in the same module that Great Minds is posting about right now. The lessons run about 30 minutes. They come with links to download the necessary math pages.
Video Libraries on YouTube:
If you are not on the same module as Great Minds, you may want to share lessons from these video libraries from You Tube.
These are great for grades K, 1, 2, and 3. Please send me links to your favorite pre-K, and grades 4, 5, and 6 video libraries so I can share them as well.

Flipgrid is a way to set up a private room to share quick videos. Any teachers involved in the STILE program have used this resource already. It is a nice way to check in with students and see each other again.

*The following suggestions are from Saunders High School, but they may be useful to you as well:
Google Voice: is a telephone service that lets you make and receive calls, texts, and use call forwarding free of charge. It provides a U.S. telephone number, chosen by the user from available numbers in selected area codes, so that your personal phone number and location are not disclosed. This can be used with PowerSchool to reach out to students and parents.
