Classroom Activities

Over the past couple of weeks in class, we began working on a few activities on the computer that your child might have already shared with you(Nearpod, Tynker, and Raz-Kids).  One of those activities, Raz-Kids is Raz-Kids, an online reading program.  They are now able to access this program from home and may begin using it for their at home reading time. They can access the program by going to www.raz-kids.com.  They will log in using the teacher username indigocluster(if their roll call number is 1-24) or indigocluster2(if their roll call number is 25-48).  Their password is their first name and roll call number(example-Regina50).  

Parent Sign-Up

Here is the  link to our Parent Volunteer Survey.  Please make sure you check this link so that you will be able to Sign-Up for areas that you may be interested in volunteering for.  We would love to have 100 percent participation.  Even if you are not able to volunteer this year, there may be information about your child you would like for us to know and this is a way to help us have it all in one place.

Donors Choose

Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!  Our first projected funded and the materials are on the way!  We have already received our online access code for Scholastic News and plan to get started using this resource in the classroom next week!  

Memory Stick/Jump Drives

We would love to be able to have the videos and projects they create as a special memory keepsake at the end of the year.  We are asking that all students send in a memory stick/jump drive so that we will be able to make a copy for them. Second year Indigo Students can return the same one from last year if it has enough memory on it or use a new one for this year.

 

 

Homework

 *Please make sure your child brings their Homework Folder to school everyday.  We are trying to get them in the habit of putting it in their mailbox every morning as it will help them get them into the habit of checking their mailbox at the end of the day for important things that are sent home throughout the week.

Reminders 

*If you have not turned in your child’s Comfort Kit, please turn it in as soon as possible. 

*Please remember to turn in your child’s memory stick.
