Hey everyone! Hope you and your families are doing well. I thought I’d share a few things that you and your families might want to try out while you’re at home. I want to be clear – this is not work that I will be assessing for marks. Like you, I’m still waiting for updates from the school board and the Ministry of Education to see what will happen.
As a reminder, the Ministry of Education is promoting a variety of activities and resources from TVO. You can access that at https://www.ontario.ca/learnathome.
As I noted earlier, EPIC has opened up home access to all students who are affected by school closures. I just need to send an invite to your parent/guardian. It is totally free and you don’t need a credit card or anything to sign up. If you would like an invite, fill out this Google Form. If you’ve forgotten your PIN, email me and I’ll send it to you. Our EPIC Class Code is lcp3920.
In addition to EPIC (above – class code: lcp3920) you may want to take a look at ReadWorks and Newsela. With your parents consent, I can sign you up for the accounts. Use this form to send me your parent/guardian’s email address. I’ll send them back your login credentials. I’m not setting up assignments in them yet, but there is the ability to do that.
