Classroom Activities

Dear students,

I miss seeing you every day! I look forward to re-connecting online using Edmodo to share ideas and chat about how everything is going with you and your family.  We will also continue our learning through the Edmodo platform.

Everything that you need to be successful will be posted here and on our class Edmodo page: schedules of assignments, links to resources, and websites that you will be using each week.

Our class will be moving to digital learning beginning 3/30/20.  (Paper packets will be distributed, to those who elected for paper-based materials instead of digital, each Monday beginning 3/30/20.)

On my Classroom Connect, please see “Q4 Ways to communicate during Online Distance Learning” for how to reach me.  I’m looking forward to seeing you online beginning 3/30/20 for our first class!

All my best,

Mrs. Frederick
