One of the features of the K-6 Go Math program is an online site which provides home and school access to student resources for enrichment and support. To access the site go to www.Thinkcentral.com and click on mathematics on the left menu, then click on the Go Math icon center page. This will take you to pull down menus – pull down New Jersey, then Linden School District and the correct school for your child. The user name is grade level specific and will be lpsgrade(K through 6 depending on your child’s grade level) and the password will be parentmath. Log on and on the next screen click My Library which will take you directly to the proper grade and screen where you will be able to select your child’s student text, mega math (animated math adventures for students), itools (virtual manipulatives and modeling activities) and the K-6 Glossary.
Discovery Education Social Studies Techbook™
Social Studies Techbook is built from the ground up to be a unique, web-based teaching and learning resource. Unlike other digital social studies programs that are converted from existing textbooks, Techbook™ takes full advantage of digital capabilities to offer multi-modal resources that transform teaching and learning. Powerful yet simple-to-use, Social Studies Techbook supports teachers as they transition to digital, while simultaneously helping them to meet Common Core State Standards. Real-time assessments also enhance a teacher’s ability to individualize instruction.
From interactive maps to “enduring debates”, Social Studies Techbook links social studies to key historical resources, features activities that help students to think critically, and encourages students to develop arguments that are supported by evidence.

- United States History I — Prehistory to 1877 and Reconstruction. Embrace history from multiple perspectives

- World History — Prehistory to the 1800s and the European Enlightenment. Connect ancient and modern times
