As the school year progresses, we will use a variety of morning work activities to kick off the day with standard based activities designed to grab students’ attention from the moment they walk in the door. As you’ll see, technology will be integrated into these tasks as much as possible, to ensure students have access to technology every single day.
Homework Check, Fast Math, and AR Tests: DAILY. Students are required to accomplish these tasks first. Students should check their homework from the previous night. Each student must take an AR test each morning on the book read the previous night. They must also use the Fast Math program at least 3 times per week.
Online articles: Students choose an online publication for kids, select a topic to read about, and practice many reading comprehension strategies.
Vocabulary: Students improve their vocabulary using a variety of flashcards, games, overhead projector activities, and online vocabulary cards.
ActivBoard: Students practice skills on the ActivBoard, using online educational games.
