• Riverdale School District Family Resources 

    Riverdale School District is dedicated to the academic success of our students. While our schools are closed, the district will make every effort to ensure that our students’ education is supported while at home. After we are able to assemble content, you will find educational weblinks that include a range of subject areas and activities that students can work on at home independently, with family members, or with other adults. To ensure variety for your child, we will update the list periodically.

    Should you have interest in purchasing a Chromebook for your child to use at home here's a resource provided by our Technology Coordinator to help with a selection that supports Google Chrome.

    If you do not have access to the internet, please click here, as Comcast has offered 2 months of free internet access to all homes with students.

    Our district supports media use recommendations from the American Academy of Pediatrics:

    • For children ages 6 and older, place consistent limits on the time spent using media, and the types of media, and make sure that media does not take the place of adequate sleep, physical activity, and other behaviors essential to health. 
    • Designate media-free times together, such as dinner or driving, as well as media-free locations at home, such as bedrooms.
    • Have ongoing communication about online citizenship and safety, including treating others with respect online and offline.

    Additional information about internet safety can be found here.

    Supplemental Learning Resources

    Grade School Parents

    There are many resources available to parents, some free of cost. As an example, Principal Tobin signed our school up for complimentary access to the Age of Learning apps.  Accounts with these apps are accessible through signing up with your own email and using the school code that has been provided by Principal Tobin.  This account is a way to supplement and enhance your at home learning experience. This does not replace what parents should anticipate receiving from the district.  To view the letter and access our school code, click here.

     

    Technology-free Activities

    Reading at home:
    All students should read or be read to 15-30 minutes daily. Families are encouraged to discuss what is
    illustrated on the pages, what is happening in the story, and what your child thinks is going to happen
    next or what they have learned. Also, ask your child how they would change the story.

    Writing at home:
    Practice, practice, practice!
    Writing takes practice! At-home writing might include e-mails, thank-you notes, scrapbook descriptions,
    diaries and journal entries, grocery lists and what's-for-dinner notes.

    Math at home:
    Play board games or do puzzles.

    In the kitchen – cook up some math! Measure all of the ingredients (especially the liquids in the glass
    measuring cups). Challenge yourself to double the recipe or cut the recipe in half – fractions are
    everywhere! Taking the time to cook a new meal not only gives you a sense of accomplishment but
    also taps into the creative side of the brain.

    Physical Activity:
    Get outdoors to run, play games or walk. Physical activity can strengthen bones, increase muscle
    strength, improve balance, reduce body fat, and improve mood.

    The Arts:
    Paint, draw, or color.

    Play a musical instrument or listen to music. Music can improve memory and develops better
    academic performance and language ability.
