 Classroom is separated into subjects. Check the reading section first as this is where I

 will be posting suggested “assignments.”

  2. Sign in to your student’s school google account (see above for your child’s username and password information).

 IXL-learning at your own pace. Review or extend your 3rd grade year. It contains all the

 reading, grammar, and math that a 3rd grader would need to know.

  1. Click log in in the top right corner (accessing through class link should log you in automatically).
