Prodigy, Typing, Scholastic News, Oh My!

Hi Third Grade Families,

Tomorrow in your child’s Tuesday folder you will receive information about 3 different online resources and how to have your child login and learn from home. Here is a little information about each resource and a link to each website.


Prodigy is an interactive math website that is leveled to meet the individual needs of your student. The program is differentiated to help your child build the math skills they need to practice. Prodigy is a fun and engaging way for students to practice math skills from home. Prodigy can be used on any type of smart device (computer, tablet, smart phone, laptop).

Typing/Keyboarding is a free website available to students to learn proper keyboarding skills. As a class, we will be using our accounts once a week for 30 minutes. The more students can practice from home, the better! Students are to follow the lessons in order and earn 2 stars before moving onto the next lesson. This site is best used with a desktop computer or laptop so students can practice using an actual keyboard.

Scholastic News

Thanks to our amazing PTO, every student has access to our Scholastic News subscription online. Twice a month, we receive a Scholastic News article in class. Each article covers important current events happening around our world. The online version offers the articles in English and Spanish and can be enjoyed by everyone in the family. The site includes the articles, games, and videos students can learn from. This would be a perfect way to get a reluctant reader to be engaged and excited about reading and also extend the learning for students interested in current events. Scholastic News can be used on any type of smart device (computer, tablet, smart phone, laptop).

All of these resources are great ways to continue the learning and engagement from home. Each of these resources and more are available on our class website under the “student resources” tab at the top of the page. Please let me know if you ever need another copy of your child’s login information. Please take advantage of these learning opportunities from home!
