Although school isn’t in session we wanted to make sure that all our students were able to access educational enrichment activities. We know how important it is to continually read and practice math facts while school is out of session. We will continue to post on our facebook pages, Roaring Tilton, Tilton Upper – the journey continues and Tiger Tilton. Please join one of these or all, to keep up to date. We also will have links and activities on our homepage for families.
Grades K & 1 should continue to use ABCYA, Starfall, and ABC Mouse to practice reading & math skills. They can also access the Library resources on the Tilton homepage. ( https://www.abcya.com/, https://www.starfall.com/h/ , https://abcmouse.com)
Grades 2-6 can log into their Google accounts and go to the library & technology Google Classroom. Some of the activities to choose from include keyboarding. listening to folktale stories, code.org, math fact practice and more.
I hope you are all staying safe at home while we are out of school! While you are home, check out the Google Classroom activities I have placed in your grade 2-6 library & technology Google Classrooms. (Go to https://home.haverhill-ps.org/. Log in with your user name and password. Click on G Suite or the classroom icon.

Although these times may be stressful and filled with uncertainties, the importance of spending quality time with your family is of top priority. Enjoy reading with one another, play family games, go for a walk and have conversations with each other. We have had some families that have requested some additional resources. We have included a variety of writing prompts. High frequency words are included to provide opportunities to practice words and play games. Our “Letterland” linking chart is also included for students to continue to use as a guide when writing. Guidelines to access online learning resources for Envisions as well as ST math are provided in individual student folders. We have included log in credentials as well as QR codes to access curriculum. Please feel free to reach out to us with any questions or to touch base at any time. Please stay healthy and we look forward to being together soon!
Dear First Grade Families,
The first grade team has compiled the following resources for your child to use at home. These are programs that your child is familiar with and are utilized in the classroom. These programs are connected to the first grade curriculum; they are aligned to first grade academic standards. Teachers will be able to monitor daily progress, assign additional materials, and support your child as needed. We suggest that XtraMath, Epic (or books at home), and a program of their choice are used daily.
(Tilton Educational Websites, Freckles, ST Math, XtraMath, Epic! Pearson Realize-enVision)
We also recommend that students write daily and continue to practice their sight word lists and math facts that were previously sent home. If you have any questions, please contact your child’s classroom teacher.
Sincerely, The First Grade Team
The second grade team has put together a packet with the following work:
