Please take some time to read! Short texts can be used for repeated readings which will increase your reading fluency. On longer texts, take some "margin notes" and focus on comprehension! Also, just take some time to read for fun and just enjoy!
iReady Math, Reading & Language
The iReady company has provided printable resources/lessons for teacher-parents who are now homeschool heroes! In this you will find reading, math, and language lessons. Each lesson comes with an answer key. Most of the ones that are provided we have already worked with in class but will serve as a good review for your now homeschool student.
Students are very familiar with this site as well. We use it in class often. Students are assigned minutes weekly that allows them practice on multiple skills. This is a tailored program that meets each students needs individually. My e-mail to connect a home computer or iPad to Lexia is firstname.lastname@example.org.
This makes math fun! **Assignments have been added for some math standards that we were going to cover after the break. Your child shoul already have an account setup. They should only need my code: 9510FA
