This section of our website is where you will find Alternate Learning Days assignments for your elementary school students to work on while school is closed for an extended period of time. Please read the general notes below, and then click on the link at left corresponding to your student's grade in order to access learning materials and assignments.
Navigating This Website:
Once you click on your student's grade-level page, you will find 2 separate sections with the "Week 1" (days 1 through 5) and "Week 2" (days 6 through 10) learning plans. Each week's learning plan has a separate section for Language Arts (e.g., i-Ready, Reading, Word Study, Writing, Comprehension) and Math. The plans will include some links to external websites to use for activities, and will also include some documents to be downloaded to your local computer.
Message from the K-5 Language Arts Coordinator,Tracey Gambardella:
We are excited to be able to provide you with activities for Alternate Learning Days. You will see that there is a daily grade level lesson plan that includes a variety of activities. These activities include reading, writing, word study (K and 1), reading response (2), comprehension work (3-5), and i-Ready lessons (K-5).
- Reading - students should read the number of minutes listed for their specific grade level.
- Writing/Comprehension - Each day students will complete the writing/comprehension assignment for their grade level.
- Word Study (Kindergarten and Grade 1) - It's phonics review time! Students will preview phonics concepts and high frequency words.
- i-Ready - we are excited to share that all of our students in Kindergarten through grade 5 now have access to i-Ready reading instructional lessons. See the i-Ready section below for how to access this website.
- The most important thing for you to do every day is read and have conversations about your books. If you have any questions, please feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Message from the K-5 Math Coordinator, Jodie Wilcox:
The math activities for Alternate Learning Days focus on skills and concepts within each grade level. Students have activities, lessons, literature links, projects, and iReady lessons to choose from. On a daily basis students should complete iReady lessons, a journal, fact practice (grades 1-5) and view an instructional lesson. Within the week's outline we tried to provide students with additional activities and projects as options for student choice.
At this time all students will have access to iReady math instructional lessons. i-Ready is an online program that helps us determine your child's strengths and areas for growth, personalize their learning, and monitor their progress throughout the school year. i-Ready allows us to meet your children "where they are" and provides us with data to inform instruction. Please follow the instructions for accessing the iReady website and Clever login listed below.
Accessing the i-Ready Website:
If an assignment requires use of i-Ready, the student will log into i-Ready through the Clever portal. Please click on the file at the bottom of this section for directions on logging into i-Ready through Clever at https://clever.com/in/northhaven
In response to some parent questions, it might help to know that the student's Clever login follows the formula of lastname.firstname (username) and the student's 6-digit lunch code for the password. Please email tech support at email@example.com
with your student's name, date of birth and his/her teacher's name if you need us to give you the student's password. We'll be happy to help!
