Good afternoon! This Wednesday, April 1st, students start their official distance learning. This week your student is required to do 1 assignment from ELA. They have until Sunday to complete this. Besides this ELA assignment, remember your student is also responsible for passing 2 lessons in I ready reading. Each morning, we will post a question on DOJO for your student or you to answer. This is how we will take attendance.
One of our ELA weekly assignments will be through www.commonlit.org . Your student will need to log into commonlit.org to access the assignment. Here are the directions:

- On the sign up page fill out: first and last name
:password (make it your students lunch number) DO NOT PUT AN EMAIL ADDRESS
- Click submit and make sure you write down your log in and password somewhere.
Now you are set up. When you log in, it will take you to the assignments tab. Click on “assignments” and it will show you what the assignment is. Click on the assignment and you can get started . Students will read a text and answer questions along the way. After they have read the entire passage they will answer the assessment questions. Make sure they click submit, this sends their work to me. Students can have the text and questions read to them by clicking the read aloud button.
