PWCS has created a web page for Home Learning resources and activities - you can access the new page by clicking on this link. The third grade teachers and I have uploaded some review resources to this website, and we will be updating it weekly. Please visit the "Useful Links" page to access direct links for class Nearpod lessons. Students can access learning links by logging into their Clever page here

Students should continue reading at least 20 minutes every day, at a minimum. They should also continue to practice their basic addition/subtraction and multiplication facts to continue building their fact fluency.  Please check Seesaw and this page frequently for any updates or additional resources for students to access while at home.  If you or your student is having trouble connecting to Seesaw please contact me so that I can get you connected.

If students need more reading material they can log in through clever and use MyOn as well using Dreambox to practice their math skills.  Additionally, many on-line educational web sites that require a subscription are providing free access to students during this time.

If you have any questions or concerns during this time, I am available through our SeeSaw app or by email marinikl@pwcs.edu
