Remote Learning HERE

Dear Families,


Welcome to Ms. Rico's online classroom resources. I will be posting new weekly links to online learning activities aligned to the published district learning focus. I am excited to venture into this new learning experience with my students. I am here to support your child during this time, as questions may arise please know that I have dedicated Monday-Thursday from 11:30-12:00 to promptly respond to your questions through email at jasminrico@tomballisd.net. It is my goal to have remote learning accessible for all students. I am here to help, please let me know if you need any additional assistance.
 
 

Interactive Storytime (Week 3/23)


This week we are going to do a fun activity! I found an awesome book to share with the kids called Harry the Dirty Dog by Gene Zion. I absolutely loved it and believe your child will too! Talking about reading is so important, therefore I encourage your child to share their favorite part of the book with you and your family. If you choose to dive deeper, you may ask them to share the setting and characters of the story. Have fun reading and continue to check Edlio for weekly posts!


The story can be found by clicking the following link:
