Accessing Clever

Students can access i-Ready, Studies Weekly, and Letterland Phonics through Clever.  Unfortunately this is the only way to access Studies Weekly and Letterland.  
1.  Go to the Yadkin County Schools homepage.
2.  Under Students, click PowerSchool. 
3.  Students will use their 10-digit student number (also used for i-Ready) to login to NCEdCloud.  The password is Yadkin123 (be sure to capitalize).
4. After logging in, students will see several tiles.  Click the blue icon with the "C" for Clever.
5. Click "Login with NCEdCloud" NOT google.
6.  Make sure you see your name at the top of the page after logging in.  Scroll to the bottom to access the different sites.  

i-Ready Expectations

Your child has completed the I-Ready Reading and Math diagnostic tests at school.  This means they may now begin completing lessons on their individual level at home. 

The goal is for students to work on each subject (math and reading) for about 45 minutes each week. 

I do NOT want students to watch a clock or set a timer when working in i-Ready.  I would like for students to simply complete a lesson in each subject each day (one math lesson and one reading lesson).  Most lessons in i-Ready should take about 15-20 minutes.  

If your child completes a lesson in less than 15 minutes, they may do another lesson in that subject that day.  On the last remote learning day, have students check their progress.  If they already have 45 minutes in a subject and no unfinished lessons, they may not need to work on i-Ready that day.  

Please encourage your child to complete and pass lessons rather than worry about time.  They should be able to pass at least 2 reading lessons and 2 math lessons each week.  

If your child cannot work on i-Ready at home, I will make sure they get their lessons in here at school. 

Fact Families

We started learning about Fact Families this week. This video is a good review of what we have talked about in class and will hopefully help with Remote Learning work. Remember that we can make subtraction equations easier by turning them into addition equations and counting on. Check out the Math page to see more videos!
