Monday was a hectic day! We went over the parent letter and students turned in their paragraphs. All students were given a parent letter and told that if they want a paper textbook, one will be provided when the signed letter comes back to me.
Every child has access to an online electronic text and can get to it by following the instructions below.
To use the online book, follow these steps:
Log in to your student desktop
Go to your course schedule
Find the subject you want to work in
Click the link for electronic texts.
If you do not have internet access or you are a kinesthetic/tactile learner you should have a paper textbook. Letters will be sent home to parents to request a paper textbook. You MUST bring the letter back signed for a book to be issued. As soon as I have user name and passwords for kids, I will give them to students to write down.
Entry Task/ Brain Bender:
Be prepared to share your paragraph with the class.
