Welcome!

Hey, Kiddos!  Glad you found your way to my page!  If you're here, you know how important it is to continue growing as readers and writers.  

 

On this page you will find:

  • Messages from me 

  • Weekly assignmentsImage result for reading is fun

  • Other resources

 

Do your best, read carefully, and follow the directions. Take your time with each assignment.  Text or email me if you have any difficulties accessing any of your online assignments.  For those of you who do not have Internet access other than through a cellular device, have your parents contact me so that I can email them an answer key for the Ready lessons in your book.  

In addition to the assignments listed below, I encourage all of you to READ for a minimum of 20 minutes per day.  Read whatever appropriate materials you have access to:  books, magazines, newspapers, online information, etc.  If you do have access to the Internet (and I believe you can access this with a cellular device), consider reading digital books.  You can find some on the Jackson County School District webpage under Maintain the Brain Resources.  Click on Tumblebooks or Teen BookCloud for free access.

 

Know that I miss all of you, and I hope to see you soon!

 

Yours truly,

Mrs. Cole
