The following resources can be accessed through your child's Clever account. The log-in page can be found by clicking HERE or by searching for "Clever Issaquah." Your child should know their log-in, which is also in their planners, but the username is the first four letters of their last name, first three letters of their first name, and their graduation year (which for our class is 2027). For example, Sally Jones would be JoneSal27. Their password is their 7-digit student ID number. 
     Zearn - Math lessons that match our Eureka curriculum. Students can finish module 4 and start module 5 on Volume and Geometry concepts. 
     Typing Club - have kids play this typing game to improve their keyboarding skills! or Kodable - These 2 computer science coding apps are great for learning and practicing coding. 
     Actively Learn - I will "assign" some articles to show up in Actively Learn related to our social studies topics. Students read articles and answer questions embedded in the article. Answers can be seen by teachers and other students. 
Other resources: 
     Epic! reading app - This will be free to use during school hours only - you can get the free app in the app store or go to the website and use the classroom code rju5800. 
     BrainPop - watch videos on topics in all subject areas - math, science, social studies, etc! There are quizzes and activities for each short video. They can log in using the username clarksharks and the password isd411.
     Prodigy - This online math game is really engaging for kids, and they 'battle' other players by doing math problems. I would recommend having them do Zearn first, then Prodigy as a reward, but it's great math practice! Students should know their log-ins, but I can look them up if they have forgotten. If they don't have an account, our class code is 4B164B.
     Wonderopolis - This site has great short articles on a variety of interesting topics. Kids can read, look up vocabulary, and test their knowledge. 
     Mystery Science has some great free resources, and Mystery Doug has fun short videos that answer a variety of science-related questions.
Other things you can do: 
READ!!! Have your child read as much as possible, and write about their reading. For every question, be sure to ask them how they know. What evidence do they have? They should use quotes or specific examples to back up their answers! 
If it's fiction, have them write or talk about answers to questions such as: 
What is the theme or message of the story?
Summarize the story with details from the beginning, middle, and end.  
Why does ___ feel (sad, angry, elated, etc)? What text clues tell you they are feeling this way? 
What is the main conflict in the story? 
Compare and contrast characters in the story. How are they similar and different? Give details from the text to support your ideas. 
What is the tone of the story? How do you know? 
What elements of authors craft do you notice? (figurative language, text structure, interesting language, etc) 
Who is telling the story? (point of view - first person, third person narrator, etc)

What is the main idea of this article/text/passage? 
Summarize the main points the of the article in your own words.

What effect did _____ (event) have? What are the causes of _____?

Student Art Calendar 2020-2021 - Now Accepting Artwork

Thanks to the support of the Seattle Times, every family and staff member in the Issaquah School District will once again receive a free print copy of the Student Art Calendar in the 2020-2021 school year—easy to hang on the wall to keep track of important school dates! Every current student in the district is invited to submit artwork to fill the pages for thousands of homes and offices. Get your creative juices flowing! The deadline to submit artwork is Friday, May 1, 2020 at midnight.

You may submit up to three pieces of student artwork by email. E-mail high quality, high resolution digital images as attachments—not embedded in the e-mail—of any size—preferably landscape or wide format to and include the words "ART CALENDAR" in the subject line. Be sure to include student's name, grade, school, and teacher AND parent name and e-mail in your e-mail message. Make sure your digital pictures are taken straight on (eye level, not crooked) and without flash/lighting irregularities.

· Important note about emailing digital art: If the artwork is high enough resolution for printing (preferably 300 dpi resolution), your digital files will likely be 1-4 megabytes (MB) in size. Our email server will not accept emails larger than 9-10 MB, so you may have to send multiple entries (no more than three per student, please) in separate emails.

· Artwork will be accepted until midnight on Friday, May 1, 2020.

· Art selections are finalized in late May or early June.

· Due to the high number of submissions received each year, only selected artists' families will be notified.

Community Resources From ISD

March 13, 2020

Dear ISD Community,

As we continue to work out the details about the services we can provide during this long-term school closure, you can expect to receive a series of communications from us beginning early next week. We know that there is great concern for the welfare or our students, families, staff, and community members. As we work to address nutrition, childcare, and emergency learning supports, please watch for surveys to help us assess the scope of needs for services in our community.

If you need assistance immediately, following are a few important community resources. We are in the process of compiling additional resources and will share them as we all work to support each other in these unprecedented times.
