    To begin working please do the following:

    Choice Board Tasks
    1. Read the article
    2. Complete the Mini-lesson in box 5
    3. Complete 2 other boxes to complete a tic-tac-toe.
    If you struggle with reading, it will be a good idea to read Autumntime (one bar article). Also, it would be a good idea to choose 1 STAR activities. It's your choice though. 
    All assignments are due by midnight on Friday 4/10 (even though Friday is a day off...hopefully the extra day helps you!). 

    If you have any questions as you work through the activities, you can email me at bkorah@emsd63.org from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.  

    Parents: Once your student has completed the designated activities, make sure to record his/her E-Learning Day Attendance through Powerschool.

    Welcome to the 2019-2020 school year! I look forward to working with you this year. In class, we will be setting goals, working hard to reach those goals, and monitoring our progress. We will celebrate when we see growth and try new approaches if we do not see the expected result. All you have to do is come with an open-mind and have positive energy. I will be here to lead you and help you along the way. Get ready for an exciting experience as we reach new levels!
