Activities and Resources for Home Use.

posted Mar 16, 2020, 4:17 PM by Jake Sheets   [ updated Mar 25, 2020, 1:40 PM ]

We will be posting a list of online educational resources for families to access at home. These are in no way required or have any due date, but options for filling your time. The more students read and practice skills the sharper they will be when we start back up in April.

First resources are the sites that the student already know about and use in school. If the students need their usernames and passwords, please email sheetsj@lb-eagles.org and I will respond back with that information as time allows. Unfortunately, I will not be able to provide much other support at this time.

IXL - Licensed for K-6th grades. Students will know their username and password. Math and Language Arts skills and practice.  UPDATE! Science and Social Studies are now included for free!

Typing Agent - Licensed for 2nd-6th grades. Keyboarding skills and practice.

All students are encouraged to read books of their choice. The Library Book Fair will be open online only this year. We will post more information about the fair and buying online when it is available. (Unfortunately, when the shipment was cancelled because the school is closed, they cancelled out online fair. We are working to re-establish it.)

For students interested in reading during this time: You may check out e-books through the Woodbury County Library. Call the Woodbury County Library at 712-873-3322.  The Library will give you a password to access their online books. You will need to download the app on your phone, computer, or your I pad.Thank you and Happy Reading!!

All students can access a free option for BrainPop and BrainPopJr while schools are closed. This has many activities and games available for all kinds of subject areas like Science, Health, Social Studies, Reading, Writing, Math, Arts and Technology. You can login with the username LBEagles and password LBEagles1. You can also create your own free account if you would like with the Family Getting Started Guide.
