I am still keeping track of your progress in Lexia/Power Up. You should be completing at least 10 Units each week. You must also complete 4 IXL ELA units each week. I check reports for Lexia, PowerUp, IXL ELA, and Typing Agent at 2:00pm on Friday afternoon. **I have noticed some of you spending 3,4, & 7 hours playing games on Typing Agent instead of building your Grammar and Phonics skills on Lexia. You should use your time wisely.
*For students without Internet Access: You should be completing your packet and the books you brought home March 13th. The standard packet assignment you must complete is four (4) pages each week and the assigned book work. Thank you.
