families, many of whom may be facing additional financial hardships from the
sudden economic changes related to COVID-19.”

Good Morning Parents and Families, During the next few weeks I will be sending you messages through the Dojo and this blog. Please check it daily so you are up to date.
Even though we are not in class, your child is expected to continue to work and learn. I have to monitor their efforts and have to grade them. One way for that is reading – I have given each child a basel book (a thick book with lots of stories) I will assign reading and have them respond in the journal I gave each child. The work and the journal will have to be turned in when we return to school.
Another way for me to monitor through a reading program called Raz Kids. It is an online reading program where the kids read and answer questions about that reading. There is also a test where they read and it records their voice as well as their answer to questions. I will be sending each one of you your child’s log in and code.
I will also resend you their Zearn code. They will have to go on Zearn and work. It will report their work to me in a report. This is to ensure that your child will continue to learn as well as to make sure their get accurate grades.
I will snap shot each of your child’s login codes. I have already enrolled them and selected their reading and math levels. They may have them do some easy reading and math to find their perfect level.
If you have any questions, feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or message me on DOJO.
Wow this year is just going so fast! It is already March!
The kids are doing such great things! They are all improving in their reading! They are writing great stories and creating in Science! We are learning about ourselves and the past in Social Studies! It is super busy here!
Please look at the school Dojo for pictures of STEAM night that just passed. Literacy night is coming up on March 19 from 5-6:30.
We have been busy working and most recently assessing everything we know so we can plan where to go next.
In January we will begin word pattern spelling along with spelling of sight words. We will focus on writing with being able to express our thoughts and ideas in writing and with our pictures. We will continue working on developing our reading and increasing our reading stamina. We are moving right along in our Math curriculum after having worked on 2D and 3D shapes, measurement and data charts. In Science we will continue working on Weather with a focus on how it impacts our environment and the plant and animals in that environment. In Social Studies we will work on learning our community and that places in it.
We are always working on being the best students, children and community members we can be. We continue to work on our Social Development and interactions so we can be the best we can be.
Dear Parents and Family’s, This week will be cold and snowy. Please make sure your child is dressed for the weather. We will go outside if temperatures are 25° and warmer. Please make sure your child has gym shoes to put on after they take off their snow boots. Please make sure your child has gloves or mittens to keep their hands warm. 🌨☃️❄
