Parents and Guardians,

Many of you have asked how you can support your student’s learning at home.  Here is an important way you can do that.

Go to www.learnzillion.com.  LearnZillion is a website that provides teachers and parents with video lessons showing what your student needs to learn each year.  The videos include a 3-5 minute “teaching” video and a short “practice” video where students can see if they understand the lesson.

When you get to the site, type the following lesson codes into any search bar on the site.  The codes will bring you directly to the lessons for your student.  Each week, I’ll be posting 3-4 codes for your student to review.   To get us started, please follow these steps.


1) Go to: http://www.learnzillion.com

2) Enter this code in ANY search bar on the page:


3) Enjoy watching the video lesson

Your student can watch the videos alone or with you.  Have your student take notes while watching.  I have provided a notes sheet to help.  If your student doesn’t have the notes sheet with them, he/she can recreate it by taking a piece of paper and breaking the front page into the following sections:

  • What is this lesson about?
  • Review
  • Mistakes to avoid
  • The main thing to learn

He/she can use the back of the paper to work on the practice problem in the “guided practice” video.

Thank you for supporting your student’s learning at home.  Let me know if you have any questions.


Mrs. Alcantara
