Little Lake Flyers

     When you are on the Little Lake homepage, please look over on the right hand side.  You will see PEACH JAR.  Please click on that picture and read the monthly flyers.  Good stuff!  Stay informed.


Here is the rubric I will be using for the poster presentation.  The grade will be used as part of the Speaking grade on the report card. The poster is not graded, it is being used so that the students have something to present to the class. The presentation is what is being graded.  However, the poster should include at LEAST 5 DIFFERENT things that your child can discuss.  For example:
1.  A family photo/ list of family      2.  A pet photo/ discuss the pet.  3.  A sport/hobby    4.  What I want to be when I grow up
5.  My favorite (food, song, movie, place)  6.  When I was little I ... 
These are just some examples.  Your child is welcome to use the same information that is in the All About Me Homework Packet, but presented on a poster paper for ease of presenting it to the class.
Common Core Standard is Speaking and Listening 2.4  Tell a story or recount experiences with appropriate facts and relevant, descriptive details, speaking audibly in coherent sentences.
Please have them practice their presentation at home several times, so that they get the best grade possible.

Compass on Tablets

Compass doesn't really work on iPads, but there's a work around.


The problem is that Compass is flash-based and flash doesn't work on Apple devices. To circumvent this, you can download a free app from Puffin Academy:


In order to access Odyssey content from your mobile device:

  1. Go to the App Store for your mobile device and find Puffin Academy by CloudMosa.
  2. Download the Puffin Academy App (not the Puffin Web browser, also by CloudMosa).
  3. Open the Puffin Academy App. 
  4. Find the Compass Learning icon and click it. A simple search for "compass learning" will bring you to Odyssey.
  5. Click the Compass Learning logo, then click the logo again, and you will be redirected to the Odyssey login screen. 
  6. Log in as you normally would and begin using Compass Learning Odyssey.


Students use the same username (first name init. + last name init. + student ID #), password (123), and school code (HLLES for Little Lake) as they do at school
