• Dear Families,

    As you  know, we will be finishing the 2019-2020 school year online.  Moving forward, much of the learning in my class will be taking place on Zearn, Canvas, Renzulli Learning, Zoom and a few other online resources that I will start posting after April 20th.  

    Many of you are already familiar with Zearn.  It is an online math program that is aligned with Eureka Math.  It provides instruction and practice opportunities for students.  Please see the link below for more information.

    Zearn Math Overview

     

    Canvas is our district approved online learning platform.  Starting April 20th, 3/4th grade Walk Up To Math students will sign in here to complete their work. I am including a link with instructions on how to set up a parent account.  If you have any questions, please contact me.

    Renzulli Learning great opportunity for enrichment created by Joseph Renzulli, an expert and pioneer in gifted education.  The program starts off with a student learning survey that narrows down talents and interests.  It then offers a wide variety of projects that students can work on independently.  This is entirely optional, but available as a wonderful chance for students to explore their interests and talents.  I look forward to overseeing any project they take on!

    DVUSD is using Zoom as our online video service.  My office hours will be conducted on Zoom Monday through Thursday 1:00 to 2:00 PM.  I am encouraging students to contact me with any questions or concerns.
