Summer Learning Enjoy!!

2020 Summer Learning: Math and Literacy

Dear Parent/Guardian,

       According to Johns Hopkins University, the effects of summer learning loss can result in nearly a three-month loss in grade-level equivalency in math and a two-month loss in grade-level equivalency in reading.   As a result of the school shut down, estimates suggest students will return in the fall 2020 with roughly 70% of the learning gains in reading relative to a typical school year.  However in mathematics, students are likely to show much smaller learning gains and in some grades, nearly a full year behind what we would observe in normal conditions. In order to close the summer learning loss gap in reading and math, middle school students will be  expected to complete Summer Learning before they return in the fall.  Teachers will grade the completed summer work when school opens in August.  Below are the expectations for math and literacy.  Thank you so much for supporting your child’s development through summer learning.

Math:

  • Complete 60 minutes of Khan Academy practice a week (Practice only, videos will not count). 
  • Students need to access Khan through Clever from the Dearborn Schools Student page. 

              DO NOT LOG IN FROM THE STUDENT’S PERSONAL  ACCOUNT

Below is the grade breakdown by minutes for Math.480+ minutes    A                 384 – 479           B                  336 – 383           C       288 – 335           D

Literacy:

  • Read a minimum of two books of your choice before you return in the fall.
  • Then, in your English Language Arts class you will complete some sort of evaluation. This could be in the form of a book talk, a one-pager, or a small project about your reading. These are generally related to characters, conflicts, plot, and lessons learned. Please refer to building blogs for more specific information.

الدورة الصيفية : الرياضيات و اللغة الانكليزية

أولياء الأمور و الأوصياء الأعزاء:

بناءً على دراسة لجامعة جون هوبكنز إن  الانقطاع عن الدراسة خلال الصيف  قد يسفر عن تراجع الطالب بما يعادل فترة زمنية قد تصل إلى الثلاثة  أشهر تقريبا من فترة الدراسة العادية في مادة الرياضيات، و الشهرين في مادة القراءة. تشير التوقعات أنه نتيجة لإغلاق المدارس سيعود الطلاب إلى المدارس في خريف  العام الدراسي ٢٠٢٠  بنسبة ٧٠ % فقط مهارات القراءة مقارنة بالمستوى الذين قد يصلون إليه خلال السنة الدراسية النموذجية / الإعتيادية. بينما من المرجح أن يظهر الطلاب نسبة تطور أقل في مهارات الرياضيات وفي  بعض الصفوف ما يقارب من تأخر سنة دراسية كاملة عما نشهده في الأحوال الدراسية العادية.   التخلص من هذه الفجوة التعليمية التي من الممكن أن تنشأ عن حلول فصل الصيف في القراءة والرياضيات، يتوقع من طلاب المرحلة الاعدادية إكمال واجبات بيتية صيفية  قبل عودتهم إلى المدرسة العام القادم وسيتم تصحيح وإعطاء علامات عن هذه الواجبات من قبل المعلمين عند بداية العام الدراسي في شهر آب القادم. في ما يلي توقعاتنا في مادة الرياضيات و القراءة. شكراً لكم على دعمكم ومساندتكم لأبنائكم في إكمال  الواجبات الصيفية .

الرياضيات:

●         إكمال  ٦٠  دقيقة اسبوعياً في التمرن ( التمرينات فقط، مدة المقاطع المصورة لا تحسب من ضمن الساعات المطلوبة) على موقع أكاديمية خان.

●   على الطلاب الدخول على موقع خان عبر صفحة مدارس ديربورن الرسمية  الرئيسية / صفحة الطلاب. لا تقوموا بتسجيل الدخول من صفحة الطالب الخاصة.

اليكم فيما يلي توزيع العلامات لكل دقيقة في كل مادة : الرياضيات ( خان) اللغة ( موبي ماكس)٤٨٠  دقيقة و أكثر  = أ٤٧٩ -٣٨٤  دقيقة = ب٣٨٣ -٣٣٦  دقيقة = س                    ٣٣٥ -٢٨٨  دقيقة = د             

تعزيز مهارات القراءة والكتابة باللغة الإنكليزية:

  • اقرأ كتابين على الأقل من اختيارك قبل أن تعود إلى المدرسة في فصل الخريف.
  • سوف يتعين عليك أن تقوم بإتمام نوع من التقييم / الاختبار في صف اللغة الإنكليزية يرتبط  بشكل عام بالشخصيات والصراعات والمؤامرة و الأحداث والدروس المستفادة من القراءة . يمكن أن يكون التقييم على شكل حديث عن كتاب ، أو ملخص من صفحة واحدة ، أو مشروع صغير حول المادة المقروءة. لمزيد من المعلومات المحددة يرجى مراجعة مدونات المدارس.

Important Information

Henry Ford Student Item Pick-Up

Monday, June 1st from 10:30-2:30

Hello, Parents and Guardians,

We want to inform you that we will have a student item pick-up Monday, June 1st from 10:30 a.m – 2:30 p.m.  This will be your opportunity to pick-up up all of your child’s belongings that were left in the school due to the Governor’s order to shut down schools.  

We are planning to have two pick-up areas outside of Henry Ford: 

  • Young 5’s-2nd grade will be located along Driscoll Ave. 
  • 3rd-5th grade will be located along Mercury Dr.  

We would like parents and guardians to follow the route that is on the attached map.  The traffic will only go one way down Driscoll Ave. and then you will need to turn right to go down Mercury Dr.  If you need to enter the loop again you will need to turn right on Hubbard Dr., then right on Korte St. and Right on Driscoll Ave. If you only have a child in grades 3-5, you may drive directly down Mercury Dr. 

Please follow the times listed below by last name letter for pick-up:

Last name starting with the letter      A      10:30-11:30 

Last name starting with the letter   B – L   11:30-12:30

Last name starting with the letter   M – S   12:30 – 1:30

Last name starting with the letter   T – Z    1:30 – 2:30 

When you get to the pick-up area PLEASE STAY IN YOUR CAR.  There will be a staff member that will bring up your child’s items to the window.  

We will need you to have a paper to show in your passenger window with the information listed below in large print for each child that attends Henry Ford Elementary, so the staff member will know what items to bring to your car.  If any of your children have library books or other books to return they can be given to the staff member when they come up to your car.

Example of Paper to Show in Passenger Window:

                    1st Child –       First and Last name, Teacher Name, Grade
        2nd Child –      First and Last name, Teacher Name, Grade
        3rd Child  –      First and Last name, Teacher Name, Grade
