3rd Grade Math  

I suggest students select a program to work within daily for 1 hour and 15 minutes (the time period they normally have for math each day). I will check lessons students are working on, but PLEASE REMEMBER THAT THESE ARE NOT MANDATORY ASSIGNMENTS, THEY ARE JUST AN ATTEMPT TO KEEP US ON TRACK.

  • I have assigned lessons in Splash Learn (Math). When logging in please select the class icon. Students should use the class code for the block they take math. Students have individual passwords. Please send a Remind text if students need their password. Once students have their passwords please write them down.

    • 1st Block Code: VBQOOX 

    •  2nd Block Code: MDTFVH 

    • 3rd Block Code: DHZUDJ

  • I have assigned lessons in iLearn. Students may scroll down to the bottom of their main page to find assigned lessons. Once lessons are complete students may work in their individual lesson path by selecting the blue start button.  Students should know their login information. 

  • Students may work on assigned lessons in Study Island

  • Students may work in their iReady lessons. I suggest working in the program at least 45 minutes a week.
