    Room #: 200

     Hello.  My name is Mr. Berg and I have been a teacher in district 150 for 30 years.  I love working with kids and watching their growth throughout the year.  Charter Oak is a great school, and I am so happy to be a part of this excellent staff.   I am thrilled to work with such wonderful kids and a great principal each day.  I hope your child has a wonderful and enriched third grade year!
         Here are a couple of websites that you can use to keep you updated on what we are doing in the classroom.
    http://eurekamathhelp.piqua.org  This website has helpful homework help and great current Learnzillion videos.  You just need to find the module and lesson we are currently working on in class.
         You may also go to www.psd150.org for math help.  Find curriculum and instruction.  Then scroll down to mathematics.  Then on the left hand side find "3rd grade common core."  Scroll down from there and find games and at home activities students can work on.
    For homework this year students are expected to read 20 minutes each night.
         For students to get to Teams to see assignments go to: teams.microsoft.com . Click on it. Students will need to login as follows: I.D.#@students.psd150.org  password:8 digit birthday. ex.) 280215@students.psd150.org    password:02252010   You can also go to the disrict website and click on "Students and Parents." Go under the "M" letter and click on MS Office and Teams login screen. Scroll down and it is red. Under that it tells you how to login like I stated above. 
         To get Microsoft Office 365 for students go again to Students and Parents. Under "M" click on Microsoft Office 365 For Students At Home. The third paragraph tells you how to get Microsoft Office.
    You can also go to the district website www.psd150.org. Then click "Students and Parents." Under the letter"L" click on "Learning@Home." You will see a list of many of the resources we will be using in class.
         If you are having trouble here is a website that has troubleshooting tips from our district page. It can help with airplane mode, wi-fi issues, etc. It is: www.peoriapublicschools.org/techtipsathome 
    Please encourage your child to click on the Skooler App on their D150 Apps page that pops up every time they turn the computer on. They can get to many of the platforms we use during the day all from the Skooler App. ex.) Teams,Think Central, IXL,Zearn, etc.)
     We will be using IXL this year for both reading and math. Students can log on through the Skooler App or the IXL app on the D150 apps page that pops up automatically. The first time students are on a new device they will have to log in with their 6 digit ID code and then their 8 digit birthdate. ex.) user: 251763@students.psd150.org password: 02232011 (birthday). After they have been on IXL more than once, they may get in by Clever and then the 4 square colored Microsoft sign. For their off-campus days and their distance learning, they will be using this almost every day. It is newer to us and I love it so far!
