The above link is for a new & exciting tool we have this year in our classroom.  The point of this free service to extend our classroom projects, conversations outside of the classroom.  Frequently we will have class discussions that will solely take place in on our classroom's page.  The set of this site is very user friendly, it is set up to resemble facebook in almost every way.  Each student has a unique username as well as password that only they know.  For parents, Edmodo offers a "mirror" site of our classroom's page that will allow to see everything your child is doing in class as well as a way to print out valuable information such as study guides, missing assignments & links to practice tests & other information for your student.

Parents who want to join the mirror site simply email me & I will provide your child's code that will then allow to join the site & take an active role in your student's social studies class.
