September 17th-21st

Websites I’ve shared with students that they can try at home with your permission:

  1. Wsd.net  next go to parents and students, click on the Journeys K-5 icon on the left side of the page. This will ask you to login. The username will be your student’s wsd email account. Students will have their password written in their planners. This website is an awesome resource for reviewing topics we go over in class. It will be great for when students are absent as well. The website also has many different resources to help students practice reading. Students may use website to read stories which can count for their 20 mins. of reading each night.
  2. Embarc.online this is a great resource for the math we are teaching at Plain City Elementary. Students or Parents can watch tutorial videos, and review or practice math problem set activities. As a 4th grade we are now on Module 1 Lesson 11. (if you use this site, you will want to make sure you click on the 4th grade page).
  3. Khan academy.org  this is one of my favorite websites, it gives students help and practice with math quizzes and video tutorials! Students will need their own login and password. I don’t use this in class due to the fact that it is not yet approved for the Weber School District. With Permission by you as parents, students can create an account. I have found this to be an excellent resource to parents and students. I really love that Khan has material for the whole year so students can keep reviewing throughout the year!
