UPDATE 3/23: For week #2 (3/23- 3/27), Students can begin accessing their Sadlier Math lessons online as an e-book.

Username: SadlierStudent
Password: ReadyToLearn!

Once logged in, students will need to select the program and grade; Progress in Mathematics, Grade 2 (It's blue and the students will recognize it!)


The students will need to do the work on a separate sheet of paper (labeled with their name and the name of the lesson) or it can be completed in their Math Journal that they brought home.

If you prefer a paper copy of the packet instead of accessing the book online, please e-mail me to make arrangements to get the material. As long as I am able to enter my classroom, I should be able to arrange for you to pick up the packets and put them outside on the table for you to pick up at your convenience. (

This week's Math lessons will include:

Check Your Progress; Chapter 11; Lessons 10-14

Lesson 15- Volume

Lesson 16- Temperature

Lesson 17- Chose tools and Units of Measure

Lesson 18-Problem Solving (Using a Map)

Lesson 19-Problem Solving (Mixed Applications)


A lesson each day in Purple Lent Book (Just do their best with answers or skim lesson. More information will be coming about lessons in their Religion workbook as well as preparing for the Sacred Heart Mass scheduled for April 2nd)

UPDATE 3/23: The school has also been working on getting access to the student's Religion text and workbooks online. I will be sending out information asap on how to access the textbook and interactive workbook asap. If the closure is extended this will be a valuable tool to continue preparing for 1st Communion and formation of Faith. 

In the meantime, students can access the Formed website for e-books, audio books and videos.
