I miss you all so much, and am so happy to see you each week at our Class Meeting. You all are doing a great job of attending!

FROM NOW ON: ALL LESSONS WILL BE ON CANVAS, NOT ON THIS CLASS PAGE.  PLEASE CHECK CANVAS EVERY MONDAY FOR NEW LESSONS

Get to Canvas through the Student Websites on this King Website. Then go through CLEVER.....and look for the CANVAS icon.  

Once through Clever, use the Heart feature to select favorite icons like Canvas, MyOn (for Reading), Benchmark (for Reading), Study Island (Math), and World Book, among others. Then they will all be at the top and easy to use.
