    Did you know there is a google classroom app available through the App Store for Apple devices and Google Play for others? It makes navigating the virtual classrooms easier and faster! Download the FREE app from the App Store or Google Play from the links below:


    Helpful tip:   Here's a comprehension tip as you read:  As always, use context clues wherever necessary. This is a skill that we practice in SS class. Basically, create a "blank" where the unknown word is (If you still can't decode it) and think of another word that would make sense in the blank. This could possibly be a "synonym" for the missing word and can lead you to better comprehension of the passage. Parents may assist with any of the reading. You know your child best!
