Distance Learning Assignments

Hello to all my students!  Are you ready to finish 6th Grade?  Well, here we go!

Your assignments will be in IXL.  I have assigned 3 skills per schoolday for you to do.  IXL Geography is challenging, sooooo we are starting in fifth grade skills for review.  Then we will go on to 6th grade skills. If you don’t get finished with all 3 in a day, that’s OK!  Just finish them the next day, or when you have time.  I’m proud of all of you, and I’m positive you will do your very best! wink
