Week of April 6th (Holy Week)

As we begin Holy Week, I am sure we are all thankful for making it through the 3 weeks so far and look forward to Spring Break beginning Thursday afternoon.  This week, the lessons are adjusted to give time to those students who need to do some catching up-maybe in cursive or finishing their Classic book report.  I also hope you have or can review your student’s 2nd trimester portfolio of work that was sent home when we left school.  Feel free to email me the Parent Response Form included in their portfolios.

This week we are not starting any new topics due to Spring Break coming up.  We are wrapping up Ramona Quimby, Age 8 before break so please help your student to be up-to-date on their lessons with this book. We should be having a Zoom meeting this week so look for the invite.  I believe they are starting Spanish this week also.  After the Break, we will be meeting Live more often.

Below are the daily lesson plans for the week.  Please be sure that your students are completing all their work and submitting the few assignments I am asking for each day.  Most have adjusted to the daily schedule and submitting routine with your help.

Week of March 30th (week 3 of remote learning)

Here we go again!  Below are the lessons for each day this week.  They are also posted each day on schoology for the students to follow each day.  They should watch the morning video and then follow the daily plan which are both posted each morning on schoology before 8:00am.  Only SOME work is be SUBMITTED each day, and that will be indicated on the plans and also be an UPCOMING ASSIGNMENT for hat day on schoology.  The students did a great job of submitting work for the first time last week.  If they are having trouble with this, please email me so someone can help them through the process or they can message me through schoology- (it is a little different depending whether they are going through the schoology app or the schoology web icon).  A reminder that they should be still doing ALL the work on the daily plans in their workbooks, worksheets, lined paper, etc. and collecting any papers in their large envelope with their codes on the front.

This week, I plan to post some short instructional math videos to accompany the Chapter 8 lessons.  Also, the students should be finished or finishing their Classic book they are reading for the Literature Tea.  I hope to be able to reschedule this traditional event, but would like the students to fill in their book report questions by April 2nd as originally scheduled.

Again, do NOT worry if your student’s work says that it is late.  They can make it up at any time.  Everyone has a different situation, and adjustments can be made to accommodate your student or your situation.  I am providing the daily lesson plans to make it easy for your student to follow, and they should be able to do that by now.  These plans are your tool to keep them in a routine with their schoolwork.  I appreciate your continued support, and am always reachable via email or messages/comments from your student via schoology during the daytime hours.
