Online Learning and review

Dear Parents and students,

Taking into account the current situation I’ll like to encourage students to review information that we have learned throughout this school year. Below are some online resources that can be used at home and help you review topics we have already learned, there are some review guides and activities you can download. I will update this web page with new material and more information regarding further learning and next steps.

IXL This web page provides exercises with feedback and explanation. Although is NOT free, it provides a curriculum for students to follow each day. https://www.ixl.com/

Khan Academy – It has lessons, practice work and explanatory videos to review and reinforce what we studied.https://www.khanacademy.org/

Kahoot – Kahoot is a great way to practice questions, it can also be used as a quick review (check) after finishing a lesson the students have been taught. The questions are timed. https://kahoot.com/

Quizizz – similar to Kahoot but it gives more time to answer each question.https://quizizz.com/

VDOE – The Virginia Department of education highlights the main SOL's students are expected to learn and they provide resources corresponding with each Standard of Learning, attached there is a folder with this activities and practice items for home. In this link you find reviews and what you need to for the year. The SOL we didn’t cover yet are just 8.11 to 8.13. http://www.doe.virginia.gov/testing/sol/standards_docs/mathematics/2016/stds/stds-grade8.pdf

Thank you, parents, for being involved with your child’s education. As we learn more about technology driven approaches to educate this year, I will update this page every Monday with new information.  If you have any question or concerns please feel free to contact by email at MartinCL3@pwcs.edu, I will do my best to reply in timely manner. The most important, please stay safe!

Ms. Martinez
