Our school now has access to a great new resource called Learning Farm www.learningfarm.com
Learning Farm provides high quality practice and instruction designed for our state’s standards in a fun and engaging format. Learning Farm is a great supplement to the work our teachers and students are doing in the classroom. Your child can practice and reinforce knowledge and skills being taught at school by using Learning Farm at home on a computer or tablet. The program is very easy to use; here are some brief instructions for your child to it at home:
1) Your child’s teacher will provide a Learning Farm username and password specifically for your child.(Username is their lunch account number and password is egms)
3) Select a subject
4) Click on a topic to study • More than one topic can be selected for a session by clicking the pages icon above the topic list. Note: for multi-topic sessions the lessons will not be offered.
5) Complete the Lesson • The lesson is an animated tutorial followed by interactive practice questions. It is recommended but not required that students complete the lesson before moving on to a practice session.
6) Select test mode or one of the fun games •
Enter enough correct responses to earn a medal. Bronze, silver, and gold medals are awarded for increasing levels of proficiency. • Medals are awarded based on the last 30 questions answered. • Content adapts based on the student’s performance.
We are excited about having access to this new resource for our students and encourage you to allocate time for them to use it at home. If you have any questions or need any assistance, please contact your child’s teacher.
