#2 Online Tools for You

The Monday folders seem to working well. Last week every folder was returned. This makes it so easy for me to get homework and notes home. Thanks for your cooperation.

Also, we were excited to welcome a student teacher to our class, Mrs. Rhodes. She will be with us for the next 6 weeks.

Class Dojo is a behavior tracking system I'll be using this year with my students. I like ClassDojo because I don't have to focus on poor behavior; I can give rewards for good behavior too. I especially like it because parents can also monitor their child's behavior. Please take a moment to read over the paper I sent home today in the Monday folder. Your child may want to login and change their Avatar.

Raz-Kids. Again this year we will be using Raz-Kids. This is an internet based supplemental reading program that your child can access from home. Students read or listen to electronic books to practice comprehension and fluency. Best of all, it doesn't cost you anything. Students can daily continue at home where they leave off at school. Today I sent home a slip of paper explaining how to login.
