Power My Learning~ A Groundbreaking Learning Innovation~ Join our class today!

PowerMyLearning is a free digital learning platform for K-12 students, parents, and educators, developed by the national nonprofit CFY. PowerMyLearning makes thousands of the most compelling publicly available digital learning activities from across the web easily accessible and usable, creating an unbiased, go-to destination.


"Now there’s one trusted place to find and use carefully curated academic games, videos, and interactives aligned to the Common Core State Standards and across a range of subjects like math, English Language Arts, science, social studies, technology and more! And it’s all completely free thanks to generous support from funders including the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, The Eli & Edythe Broad Foundation, and the W.K. Kellogg Foundation.

"With PowerMyLearning, families can discover stimulating activities to reinforce classroom learning and spark new areas of interests. Educators can take advantage of a set of powerful tools for individualizing learning and supporting instruction in the classroom and beyond."

Throughout the year, I will create playlists for all the content areas where students can play while learning in an engaging way.  We are starting the year off in math with addition with regrouping and place value so 2 playlists are up and ready to go.
