Scholastic Book Club Orders
Our class places Scholastic Book Club orders every month. Scholastic book flyers will come home around the first Wednesday of the month. Orders are due around the end of the month on a Friday by 5pm. The specific due date will be noted on the flyer. Please use our class code MDMP8 when placing your order.
Students will be required to read a minimum of 20 minutes a night. Independent reading will be monitored and students will be held accountable. It's important that your child selects a reading book at his/her level and sticks with it.
We use Google Classroom for many different things such as accessing videos, documents, and turning in class assignments. Students need to enter their AUSD student account information to access the website. Parents can view the website using their child's account.
Parents be sure you are connected to our Class Dojo page for up to date information on your child's classroom behavior. Directions are given at Back to School night. Pictures, videos, reminders, and more come to you through Class Dojo. It's a private website only available to room 13 parents. You won't want to miss out on all the fun updates throughout the year.
Our class uses Symbaloo and Draggo for frequently used educational websites. During the beginning of the school week your child will learn about my Symbaloo webmix and they will be bookmarking it for their reference.
