Snowy, Snowy Day!

Welcome to February and our second snow of 2014! Since school can get cancelled, we've compiled some great websites to keep the learning going outside of school :-)

OAS - CRCT Prep tests created by students and teachers! Logins are in the front of your child's agenda. Send those scores to your teacher so we can see how well you're doing!

Brainpop - Great place to check out videos on LOTS of topics. Each video also has a quiz to check for understanding on topics.

Adapted Mind - Great website to practice math and reading based on your personal skills. Logins were sent home in this week's Monday folder

Khan Academy - Having trouble with learning how to add mix numbers? This website has step-by-step videos and practice problems. This site also has some Science and Social Studies videos as well!

IXL - Great way to review math standards we have gone over in class as well as a preview to standards we will learn later in the year.

iCivics - Want to learn and play games at the same time? This site is for you! It's a great place to learn more about our government and the part you play in it! Ms. Smith recommends the Bill of Rights Game - test your knowledge on the first 10 amendments to the US Constitution

Safari Montage - Like a video your teacher showed in class? Want to find more just like it? This is a great site to do that! Login using your HallCo username and password and you now have access to lots of information videos!

If you enjoy these websites, let your teacher know! Find a website you think we could use, tell us about it! Comment below if you find one we need to check out! 

Make sure to check out our teacher webpages for updated class information as well as more website lists. Feel free to email your teacher if you need login information or have any questions. Stay safe and warm!
