My name is Nadine Hopper and I will be your child's 8th grade Language Arts and Math teacher. This year I will be co-teaching with Mrs. Golden for Language Arts and Mrs. Lindsey for Math.

Optional Learning Activities

Good morning students and parents, 
 
     I have selected Readworks and Moby Max to offer optional activities that are specific to your child's academic goals and education plan.  
 
The student can also continue to use the 8th grade activities on the Bartlett City School web site. https://www.bartlettschools.org/apps/pages/BCSRemoteLearningResources
 
I have emailed the students their class codes, logins and passwords for both websites.
    
Moby Max is located in Clever, the students will need to login and take a placement test for reading comprehension and math befor they can begin activities. 
 
The students are familiar with Readworks and will find several reading passages to chose from. 
 
The students do not have to submit anything as I will be able to see their  participation and progress. If there is a problem the students may send me an email.
 
I also gave the students login/passwords to Prodigy. Which is an interactive game they can use to review basic math skills. 
 
Thanks and be well,
Mrs. Hopper

Bartlett City School optional learning activities week 1

 

Hey Y’all,

I know it’s been awhile since we’ve seen each other’s faces and heard each other’s voices, and I can honestly say that I miss all of you! Attached is the link to the optional learning activities BCS is offering. Let me know which activities you like. 

You will be receiving an email from me tomorrow with your login and password to Moby Max. This is a great website to review the skills you will need in the future in reading and math. When you login in you will need to take three placement assessments to identify your starting point. Moby Max is located in Clever, just find the Moby Max icon. 

"When students click Math, Language, or Foundational Reading, they complete a placement test to identify a starting point. All other modules start students on content according to their registered grade level. MobyMax then automatically assigns lessons to fix identified skill gaps. A student’s score on a lesson informs the next set of lessons that are automatically assigned; students only move on when they’ve mastered the topic at hand."

 I urge you all to be safe and practice social distancing as much as possible. Please contact me if you need me, I’m here for you. Stay tuned for emails about online (virtual chats).

All the best,

Mrs. Hopper
