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!

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)
