Edmodo Information For Parents

Group Code:
Your child will need the group code to enter my secure Edmodo group. For safety reasons, I cannot post this code on my website. Email me at althamco@spsd.org with your child's name and I will reply as soon as possible with the group code. Please be sure to review the Rules of the Edmodo Road with your child. In addition to being totally cool, this activity will help prepare your child for the world of online learning, to engage them and to keep them reading over the summer. Research shows that reading an average of six books over the summer will help your child maintain their reading growth from the school year. I welcome and encourage your questions, suggestions and input. A quick, "Hi This is Mrs. Smith, and my child Sally Smith has permission to join the Edmodo book club" will suffice. My return email may be a bit slow during the week of Camp Invention and perhaps around the 4th of July.

Edmodo Guidelines

Posting Messages

Post a note to the whole group if your question is about something the whole group should know (assignments, instructions, dates etc.)

Send a note only to your teacher if you want to talk about something that doesn’t relate to everyone.

Don’t post personal questions to the group.

Keep conversations on topic.

If you’re not sure if a word or joke is okay, then it’s probably not. Refrain from posts that tease, bully, annoy, or gossip about any other member. 

 

Replying to Messages

Do not answer a question if you aren’t sure you know the answer.

Use page numbers from the book when you want to cite passages. For example, "I love the paragraph that begins 'When I was young...' on page 23." That way, all members of the group can read the specific passage that you think is important. 

 

Groups

If you think there is something inappropriate posted in an Edmodo group, tell a teacher immediately.
