Dear 5th Grade Resource Room Parents,

    As of now, I will be sending assignments through Google Classroom.  These assignments can be turned in by clicking on “turn in”.  Google classroom also gives me the ability to answer student questions.  Directions will be sent home with your child. However, we’ve only just begun using Google Classroom, and if you find that it is too difficult for your child to manage, please let me know.

    As an alternative, I can post assignments on my website on the 5th grade today’s work page. Students would need to login to the website in order to access this page. Completed work may be e-mailed to me at meyer@voorhees.k12.nj.us

    The textbook, workbook and assignments for all areas of ELA can be accessed through the Journeys website (https://www-k6.thinkcentral.com/).   Journeys Think Central may be accessed on the Kresson School website site short cuts.

    Login information has been sent to you in an e-mail, and also a letter that went home.

    As always, please do not hesitate to contact me should you have any additional questions or concerns.

    We're in this together, and we will get through this together.
