    Dear Parent,

     

    I am pleased to tell you that we will be using a website called IXL in our classroom this year. IXL is a comprehensive learning program offering unlimited math, science, social studies, and science practice across thousands of skills—all of which are aligned to Florida Standards. One of the best things about IXL is that your child can access it from home, so you have a chance to see your child's progress!

     

    To get your child started on your home computer, please follow these easy steps:

     

    1. Go to https://www.ixl.com

     

    1. Enter your child's username and password and click "Sign in."
      (Note: If the username and password are not listed below, they will be provided separately.)

     

    Students already have these passwords. I sent 2 copies home earlier this year. If your child needs it again. Please email me and I will be happy to resend it.

     

    Username_____________________

    Password_____________________

     

    1. Click on any skill to start learning!

     

    IXL is designed to help your child learn at his or her own pace. The program is adaptive and will adjust based on your child's demonstrated understanding of the material. All of your child's results will be saved, so you can monitor his or her progress anytime by clicking on Analytics. For on-the-go practice, you can download IXL’s free tablet apps for iPad, Android, or Kindle and sign in with your child’s username and password.

     

     

    I hope you'll encourage your son or daughter to use IXL regularly. Here's to a year of working together to make learning fun for your child!

     

    Sincerely,

     

    Brenda Fagan

    Good evening parents,

        As I am monitoring I-Ready reading and math. I am noticing that many students are not signing in daily or are rushing through their differentiated skills. This is a learning tool for your child.

    Please remind students to listen carefully to the instruction given on the skill(s) they are working on and complete their work independently. It takes about 20 minutes for each lesson. Once lessons are passed, students will move forward to the next skill they need.

        Please provide paper for your child to work out math problems as needed. I remind them constantly in class to take their time and work their problems out, step by step carefully, before selecting an answer or typing it in. They can use IXL for extra practice.

        Please continue to have your child read 20 minutes daily. MyOn is a wonderful resource with unlimited books for your child's reading interest. Please add titles to your March Reading Log. I will download the one for April soon. If you do not have a printer, then they can use paper or a notebook to keep up with their titles.

        Please continue to view the Marion County School Homepage daily for updates and locations for picking up breakfast, lunch, and updated learning packets. Learning packets contain answer keys for parents to check answers. Learning packets will not be returned.

     

        Other resources are the Fry Word List located in your child's binder, use spelling words to write a story about a super hero or other creative writings, Social Studies Weekly located on student desktop. All students know how to sign in, they do it in class daily.

        Thank you so much for your support. Please know I value all of my wonderful parents and miss my fantastic students daily. If you have any questions you are welcome to call my cell phone at 352-537-0178 or my home phone @ 352-821-0264. Leave a message and I will return your call ASAP. Thanks
