  • How to Use Our Prodigy Class Code: 68F631

    Posted by Harry Williams on 4/3/2020 12:40:00 PM


    How do my students use my class code? 


    Class codes will be entered as part of the student registration process. To get your students started, follow these instructions:


    1. Have your students navigate to Prodigy and select the "Play Prodigy" link in the top right corner of the page or head to https://play.prodigygame.com


    2. Have them enter their username and password and select "Login" to access the game.


    3. Have your student click the 'Update" button under "New Teacher?"



    4. Enter in your class code. If you don't have your class code on hand, then select the "Need a class code? Click here!". You will be prompted to enter your teacher email address, password and then chose the class that you would like your student linked to.



    That's it! Your students can login to the game with their existing username and they'll automatically be tied to your class list via the class code.

  • SCIENCE: Extra credit, Extra fun!

    Posted by Harry Williams on 4/2/2020 12:35:00 PM

    Here is the latest web page sent out by BBC Earth, the Science branch of BBC in the United Kingdom.  I think the videos linked there are really interesting, high quality, and educational.  If your learner would like some extra credit in this weird marking period, he or she can write a summary of any video and send it to me at harry.williams@marion.k12.fl.us or via Dojo.


    It can be written or even a video summary.  Be creative--have fun--LEARN!  To go the website, click the screenshot below or HERE!

    You can submit BrainPOP results by emailing your results to me from BrainPOP at the end of each quiz (harry.williams@marion.k12.fl.us), by Dojo-ing it to me, or by sending a screenshot.  Parents have asked: Yes, BrainPOP can be done on cell phones!  See the screenshot below...

  • Make-a-Map: Prepare for the Quizzes in BrainPOP

    Posted by Harry Williams on 4/1/2020 10:05:00 AM

    I was messing around in BrainPOP and found "Make-a-Map" right next to "Quiz" in the menu next to the video. 

    make-a-map 1

    I tried it, and it was fun--and a GREAT way to go over in my mind everything i learned.  I could organize it in my own way so that it really meant something to me, and clicking the white triangles in the black circles let me listen to an explanatio of whatever i was working with: tons, yards, pints, etc.

    make-a-map 2

    I would DEFINITELY use this before I took a quiz in BrainPOP.  Now I'm going to try some of the other things on that menu!


    Good luck!

  • How to Access the Readworks Library (not for grades, just for fun!)

    Posted by Harry Williams on 3/31/2020 1:05:00 PM

    Many thanks to Jude and his family (who definitely rock!) for their help in getting me the images and info I needed to make this tutorial about how to access your Readworks personalized library!  (In case you need it, our code is H7WAAE.)


    First, you should go to your assignments page in Readworks as usual.  At the top you should see a blue box labeled "Reading Mindset Snapshot."  If you have a few minutes, click the "Start" button:

    mindset 1


    Next , if you have the time just then, you can click "Yes" to take the brief survey:

    mindset 2


    You will then take a survey that will allow Readworks to give you a library of fiction and non-fiction articles and stories that are matched exactly with what you are interested in:

    mindset 3


    Once that's done, you will see a "Library" button at the top of the Readworks page.  Select anything from it for your daily 20 minutes of reading, or just anytime you feel like it.  These articles and stories will NOT be for grades--just for fun.  Good luck!

    This video is a child-friendly explanation (and for adults, too!) about Covid-19 and coronavirus, and it's very good: https://www.brainpop.com/health/diseasesinjuriesandconditions/coronavirus/

  • A great poem from our ELA class:

    Posted by Harry Williams on 3/2/2020 2:00:00 PM

    Windy Nights

    Robert Louis Stevenson - 1850-1894
    Whenever the moon and stars are set,   
      Whenever the wind is high,   
    All night long in the dark and wet,   
      A man goes riding by.   
    Late in the night when the fires are out,
    Why does he gallop and gallop about?   
    Whenever the trees are crying aloud,   
      And ships are tossed at sea,   
    By, on the highway, low and loud,   
      By at the gallop goes he.
    By at the gallop he goes, and then   
    By he comes back at the gallop again.
