Welcome to Intensive Reading! This is an intensive reading class for 6th and 8th grade students. We use the Escalate curriculum series with great technology resources and printed support materials to make your students stronger readers and to bridge the gap to become more confident comprehenders.
Hi Everyone! I hope you all are doing well in this time and making the best of it! I know you weren't expecting this like us all and we will get through this together! This is where you will check in to view assignments and information regarding our class. The assignments will be posted in the "assignment" area. We will be using Google Classroom to turn in assignments along with Seesaw and Read Theory. You are all familiar with using these platforms as we use them often in our classroom. You will also be using your online books now to complete any reading assignments. These are the same as the textbooks you use in class. I would like to use Zoom at some point to touch base with some of you that need extra assistance. Maybe we can even set up a time a week to video chat as a class!
You can get to Google Classroom by logging into your desktop and clicking on the icon. I will be doing a roll check to see all who is able to access it or those that are having any issues. Other than that, you all know how to follow the instructions for the assignments and turn them in.
You know that I am always here to help. You can email, text, or call anytime. I will do my best to respond immediately. I know this is a transition for us all so please give me time to respond. Even if it is after 3:40, I will still respond if I am available. School hours are from 9:15-3:40. I will post my contact info below. I can't wait to hear from you!

I have had to change our Google Classroom.

Please join your correct classroom with the correct code. Thank you.
I have set up Microsoft Teams for us to use for communication. Please check your emails and follow the instructions. The Teams icon is located on your portal in the same place where your iReady and other icons are. Please follow the directions to check in. Email me if you are having any issues.
REMINDER: Don't forget to check your email daily for any correspondence from me. Contact me if you have any questions or concerns. You can email or text anytime. Make sure to check Google Classroom daily. Complete 2 Read Theory Quizzes daily regardless of any other assignments. These will be your classwork grade.
