SCHOOLOGY
In your child's READING and WRITING Schoology course, I have added a folder in each course titled 1st 9 Weeks Review. 
I have added and will continue to add videos throughout the 9 weeks for your child to watch at home for review or if they are going to be out for an extended period of time, they can keep up with what we are working on in class. This would be a great after school activity 1 to 2 days a week for your child to watch 1 to 2 videos in each course. I will create a folder for each 9 weeks and continue to update it as we learn new skills throughout the school year.
