DISCOVERY ED. PROBES
In order to assist our students further in targeting ELA standards that need additional focus, the school has asked us to create short practice probes for our students. The standards chosen for these probes were based on data from our recent winter diagnostics.
There will be two probes per week, beginning this week (January 30-February 3). One of which will be online and one done in class. Both probes will be graded (one quiz grade, one project grade).
1. Go to www.discoveryeducation.com from a computer, tablet, or smartphone.
2. Log in with user ID (for most students, the user ID is last name.first name) and password “bolts” or "bolts1."
3. At the welcome screen, click on “Probes and Benchmarks.”
4. When the list of available assignments appears, look for two probes listed assigned to me (Ms. Wolin).
5. Follow the directions and the complete the probes. Students may do either probe first, but both must be completed by 6:00am of the following Monday. At that time, new probes for the following week will be assigned, and the previous probes removed.
If you have any questions, or are unable to gain access to the Discovery Ed web site, please let me know as soon as possible.
Reading activities for the i-Ready program are up on the i-Ready web site: login.i-ready.com. Enter your first initial.last name as both your user ID and password. We are asking our students to complete 45 minutes of reading lessons each week. The school will be offering incentives and rewards for those who complete the required number of lessons to cover. Please email me if you are unable to access the i-Ready site at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will forward your login information to you.
I was born in New York and moved to Florida when I was 3 years old. I grew up dreaming of becoming a divorce lawyer for as long as I can remember. I went to Florida Atlantic University where I chased my dream of becoming an attorney. After graduating from FAU, I attended Thomas Cooley Law School in Ann Arbor, Michigan. While in law school I changed my focus from divorce law to child advocacy and probate and estate planning. I am waiting for bar results and crossing fingers & toes. Working with children is in my blood; my mom was a teacher. I have worked for the Palm Beach County School Board since I was 18.
