I just wanted to congratulate all of you for your hard work during these past few weeks!  
Please continue to complete one math and one reading assignment on IXL each day.  Choose from either the "Recommendations" that appear when you log on, or choose one of the skills that are located in the "Star" on the right hand side.  We are going to start zoom sessions next week, so please keep an eye on your email for dates and times.  If that date/time does not work, please let me know and we can make alternate arrangements.  Let me know if you have any questions or if I can be of assistance in any way!

Reading Stories

I hope that everyone is well and staying safe!  I have posted extra stories for grade levels K through 2 below.  Each one has the story, activities (can pick and choose which ones to complete), and comprehension questions included (the last page is the answer key).  Please let me know if you have any questions.

WPACES is now serving grab n go breakfast to our students beginning March 25th 2020 from 10:00am-12:00pm.  These meals will be available on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays. In addition, packets have been replenished so if you would like to have your child work on the packet instead of the online work you can pick up a packet at the entrance to the school!


I have posted link to the sight words that I have been using with students.  Please feel free to print them out or have students make flash cards.  Please let me know if you have any questions.  I hope everyone is doing well and staying safe!

I hope that everyone is doing well and staying safe.  For those students that are able to access IXL, I have added specific topics for each student to work on.  When you log on, you will see a yellow star towards the upper right.  Please don't be overwhelmed.  I put an abundance of topics in each students account.  Please feel free to reach out with any questions.  Stay Safe!

There are learning packets outside the main entrance of the school for any parent that is interested.

Below is a link to some extra resources if you need some.  You can click on the grade level and it will provide you with activities, and links to stories.  It also provides answer keys.

Dear Parent,

We have been using a website called IXL in our classroom this year. IXL is a comprehensive learning program offering unlimited math, language arts, science, and social studies practice across thousands of skills—all of which are aligned to the Common Core. 

To get your child started on your home computer, please follow these easy steps:

  1. Go to https://www.ixl.com/signin/wpaces
  2. Enter your child's username and password and click "Sign in."
  3.  On the top left, there is a tab labeled "Recommendations". This will provide skills that your child needs to work on as a result of their Diagnostics. 
  4. If you want, you can click on a specific subject, and it will provide you with a list of grade levels.  Click on the grade level, and then the desired skill that you want your child to work on.


IXL is designed to help your child learn at his or her own pace. The program is adaptive and will adjust based on your child's demonstrated understanding of the material. All of your child's results will be saved, so you can monitor his or her progress anytime by clicking on Analytics. For on-the-go practice, you can download IXL’s free tablet apps for iPad, Android, or Kindle and sign in with your child’s username and password.

If you need your child's username or password, please email me at djaskelewicz@wpaces.net and I will send it to you.  Also, if you have questions on which skills your child should be working outside of the ones found under "Recommendation", please let me know and I will provide some for you.  

I look forward to seeing all of you again in school shortly.  Stay safe! 


Mr. Jaskelewicz
