As we navigate this new environment with school closings, quarantine, and social distancing, we as a school community want to provide our families resources. We will compile all information on this page plus post student challenge and videos on our Facebook page. Use this as a resource, so please don't feel overwhelmed. Use what you want and ignore the rest!
Zoo-phonics® is a method developed to make children strong readers and spellers using a phono (hearing), oral (speaking), visual (seeing), kinesthetic (moving), and tactile (touching)—whole-brain approach.
Zeke's Activity Corner is providing free activities each day for students to review their letters and sounds.
