ATTENTION PARENTS! Do you need help with eLearning?
Let's face it - eLearning is new for ALL of us. Now is the time to work together for the benefit of our children. Let's re-dedicate ourselves to forming a strong partnership. Our kids need us and We're Better Together!
Beginning the week of April 13, e-Learning for students will take place Monday through Thursday each week. Teachers will be available each e-Learning day from 8:00 -3:00 except on late-start Wednesdays when teachers's hours will be from 9:00 - 3:00. Students are required to log in and complete online lessons and activities each e-Learning day. In order to generate grades, assignments need to be submitted by Friday - at the end of each e-Learning week. Daily attendance is critical and will be based on students' daily online participation.
In order to support our Cardinal families, Chromebooks will be available for pickup at the administration building Wednesday, April 8th from 8:00 - 5:00. Each family is entitled to one Chromebook that can be used for all students from kindergarten to 12th grade. An Indiana driver's license is required and students must be registered in the district's Skyward system.
Below is a helpful list of websites that your children can work on aside from the tasks and activities teachers have assigned in Canvas and/or Google Classroom. It's important to get kids on a daily schedule that includes eLearning. Because reading is so critical to learning, another list of websites has been added expressly for reading. Find it in the section titled Read, Read, Read! To access each site, just click the name of the site that is underlined. Come back and revisit this list because it will continue to grow.
iReady Math - Each student has a learning path that is suited to his or her needs. Students should work on this site for at LEAST 45 minutes a week.
IXL is an excellent site for students in kindergarten and all the way to high school. It provides practice in all the important subjects - reading, language, math, science, and social studies. Be sure to explore this site.
Khan Academy is a math site that provides step-by-step instructions and explanations for all kinds of math problems. It has lessons for students starting in kindergarten all the way up to college levels. This site comes highly recommended.
Xtra Math is good for keeping those basic math skills fresh, like addition, subtraction, multiplication and division
