Students who have their folders at home should have their login information for their website that are on my google classroom. To get to my google classroom go to www.google.com and then sign in. Their sign in is their firstname.lastname@jpsbschools.us Example mine would be Ashley.hines@jpsbschools.us. They should know their passwords and how to do this. Then the kids go to the waffle looking set in the top right. Click on it and then click classroom. There are all kinds of websites on my classroom that the children are familiar with.
 
New website to visit is the https://freedomhomeschooling.com/virtual-field-trips/?fbclid+lwAR02exH1Asxmh7dnsndLqYlEa2nNKqZmO0s65rdCOChpl15EDJVdQk2tA  You can take a trip to the zoo, aquarium, Mount Everest, or the Statue of Liberty all without leaving your home.
I hope you are doing well. If you are able to and would like to, click on Jackson Parish Math Homework Help tab on this website. You will find lots of games and the Embarcc/Eureka lessons. We were on module 2 topic b and also module 5 adding 3 digit numbers. Also work on basic math facts adding and subtracting through 18. The goal is 25 in one minute.
 
All of my students students have been entered into Zearn (www.zearn.org). This is on my classroom. The username and password should be taped to the inside of their folder. This site is an excellent way for the children to continue their learning. I have started the students at the beginning of the 2nd grade. If you need the student advanced, please email me or Dojo me.
I hope you are doing well! Please find some time to pull from the resources on my Google Classroom and use them to review skills we have learned so far this year. 
 
I also encourage ALL students to login to XtraMath daily for fact practice!
 
Before this school cancellation, we would have been starting the Geometry module in Eureka. I am encouraging all students to find and practice any material related to basic geometry for 4th grade.
 
If you would like to be added to my Zearn class, just email me or message me on Class DOJO. These lessons mirror the Eureka curriculum and take about 20 minutes per day to complete.
 
Stay safe!
