Parents, this is where you will find weekly suggested learning activities for your child. You will need to follow the steps below to access our class activity page. These will change on a biweekly basis but you can always access other passages and question sets through your account.
Please feel free to extend these activities by having your child write about what they read, draw a picture or comic strip to depict what they read, create a character analysis, even do an external activity for them to connect the text to their real world, and have them decide the THEME of each story.
