"You can find magic whereever you look. Sit back & relax, all you need is a book." - Dr. Seuss

I believe in a classroom environment where children take ownership and active responsibility for their learning. In our room we will be leaders and a family where cooperative learning and engagement is the key to success.

  • Frequently Asked Questions

    1. How many minutes does my child need to spend on iReady?

    Answer: Students should spend 36 minutes on iReady Reading and 36 minutes on iReady Math per day for a total of 180 minutes in each subject per week.

    2. Where do I find myON?

    Answer: On Classlink you will see a purple icon for myON.

    3. How many minutes should my child be on myON?

    Answer: Students should be reading for at least 20 minutes a day for a total of 100 minutes per week. They can take the AR test through the myON program. It is your choice if you want them spending more time. If so, I suggest breaking it up into a morning session and afternoon session. I will be monitoring scores and documenting minutes spent on the program.

    4. Can we read books from home and take an AR quiz?  

    Answer: Yes, the school has gotten permission to open up AR outside of school. On Classlink, click on the green R (Renaissance) to access AR for quizzes. I will be monitoring scores and documenting minutes spent on the program.

    5. What is required for virtual learning?

    Answer: iReady & myON are required by the district for 1st grade. We are required to monitor learning and document the minutes spent on the programs. 3 AR quizzes a week is suggested. 

    6. What else can my child do?

    Answer: Complete the required tasks first (iReady & myON). Then, work on sight words and math facts. Tumblebooks and Reflex Math are resources through Classlink. 

    7. Will my child be given anything extra?

    Answer: Yes, upon completion of the Ready assessments and after week 1 of virual learning, I will send out some suggestions for other resources. These are optional at your choosing. Social Studies Weekly & Science Weekly are great choices on Classlink. In addition, Brain Pop was just added to Classlink.

    Answer: Their username is their 88 or 80 number and their first and last initial.
    Their password is their first and last initial and their birth year.
