i-Ready Teacher Toolbox
Distance Learning Platforms We
It is critical that our SWDs have additional opportunities for explicit instruction and more practice with concepts being taught. We see the Teacher Toolbox often in our elementary pacing guides. We are sharing this for our middle school teacher friends. This is available for K-8 teachers and you have video tutorials, additional activities for practice, and it is great. If you haven't created your account yet, click on "Register Now" and create your account using your dadeschools email. This platform is an excellent place to locate supplemental tasks to support our students who are working below the grade level and need that supplemental support. Don't let this resource pass you by!
We have e-mailed your school sites to remind teams about login information! Please check-in with your administrator or contact our team if you forgot!
Learning A-Z offers their programs Reading A-Z and Science A-Z. These platforms offer lesson plans, related activities, stories, and quizzes for your students.
