Friday news!

Reminder Group A is in person on Monday from 9:30-2:20. Group B has a zoom meeting with Mrs. Angela at 8:40 am.

Next week we still follow the same schedule that I sent out and we used this week. Final Hybrid schedule without these goofy Thursdays and Fridays will be sent out towards the end of next week. Zoom times are still consistent.

On asynchronous days you must be watching the eureka math videos posted under materials on Schoology! I have access to see who has watched and who has not. Although it seems silly and repetitive the lessons have important vocabulary that is taught and needs to be learned. Doing the math pages is important…. but so is watching the videos.

We will be trying to use lockers this year. It was too much to have everything in the classroom. It ended up getting in the way. We will only let 2-3 students in the hallway at a time to grab things from lockers so that they are still not congregating. Please only send things to school on the checklist. We do not need pencils, crayons, etc. All students have their own that was already provided by the school. Hopefully lockers will help keep us organized.

We need for the classroom:

playdo, coloring books (boy and girl themes), maze/puzzle books, sidewalk chalk, and legos! I have some of these things but not enough for everyone to have their own. There is not enough time to clean and let sit in between uses right now. We will have down time and I want them to have something they enjoy doing. These items are always well used in the kindergarten classroom. If you would be willing to donate it would be much appreciated.

Have a great weekend! Next week we study reptiles ๐Ÿ™‚

Today’s Schedule!

Just in case it makes it easier I will post the zoom times for each group for today.

All Students-

8:40 ELA

1030 Math

12 pm Writing (language packet page on arctic animals. 3 main point writing)

Group B ha specials today! They can attend Music at 9:55 am and Gym at 1 pm. (Group A has these tomorrow).

Internet fixed

Apparently I have two wifi accounts I can use. (Who knew?) So now I know I can switch back and forth if it goes out again. Sorry about that.

Math zoom is at 1030

Show and Share zoom is at 12 pm

Music zoom is at 1 pm for the whole class

NO SEL. She is done teaching that class for right now ๐Ÿ™‚

Remainder of Week News

Reminder that we are virtual for the rest of this week! I am sure the kiddos are tired. We were busy yesterday and today! Zoom meetings are at 8:40 am, 10:30 am, and 12:30 pm for the next three days.

Remember to not work ahead at home. It was hard to pace things out so that one group was not ahead of another. If you do the pages or lessons before then your child will not have it to do in class.

Please send me a picture of your completed goal sheet on days you are at home virtual. This is how I put in that your child was present and finished the days work.

Report cards are coming up quick! Make sure I have all of your childs completed work turned in so it can be graded and counted.

It is impossible for me to zip coats and help them put them on each time we go outside. We are trying to get them up and out a couple times so they get fresh air. Please make sure your child can put on AND zip their own coat.

Opening eureka math books to a page is a struggle! Please put a book mark in your math book so your child can easily get to a lesson. Some have it down but it wastes quite a bit of time when I have to go around and open everyone’s books.

Lunches seem to be filling the kids up and no one has asked for a snack. Hopefully this continues but I do have extra snacks on hand if need be ๐Ÿ™‚

Make sure water bottles are refillable! If the students finish them then they can refill in the hallway.

Thanks for all of the well wishes for my vacation. It was great to see my dad and enjoy the 90 degree weather. Made it hard to come back to the cold!

See everyone on zoom tomorrow morning.

Monday reminders!

Group A – in person. Drop off at door 18 between 9:30-9:40 am. Remember your items from the Ready for Classroom Checklist and a lunch! Bring any finished work. Pick up at 2:20 pm. We will be at door 18.

Group B- NO online zoom this morning with Mrs. Angela. Complete goal sheet. Finish any undone packet pages.

YAY week one of in person learning! We made it! See your smiling faces soon โ™ฅ๏ธ

Extra clothes for in person!

I almost forgot!

Each student should have a full change of clothes (shirt, pants, underwear, and socks) in a labeled bag. These clothes will be stored so that if there is an accident we can change. I would email you and let you know that dirty clothes were coming home and then you can send back in a new bag on the next in person dyas.

It usually is something like spilling milk in the lunchroom, spilling water from water bottles, and not making it to the bathroom on time (especially when outside for recess).

Before you leave your house for in person learning days please make sure your child goes to the bathroom! This will also help.

Please read –Reminders!

Couple of reminders- NO LIVE ZOOMS on Thursday or Friday. Mrs. Angela has the days off. Specials and Ms. Bost will still have live zooms.

There will be NO LIVE ZOOMS on Monday, March 1st for Group B. They complete the asynchronous goals and make sure all packet pages are complete to turn in on Tuesday.

Packets will be given out on Monday and Tuesday of next week. So they will do packet page goals with me in person.

We start the Montessori Animal Units on Monday! The students will be working with me on completing them together on the first week ๐Ÿ™‚ We start with Arctic Animals!

IMPORTANT!

As usual things have changed ๐Ÿ™‚ The district announced that all buildings will be virtual on Thursday and Friday the first two weeks we are back hybrid. I will upload a schedule that tells you exactly what days you are in person, what days are virtual, and specials. Once we get closer to the week of the 15th I will send home a paper schedule for you to hang up of the normal hybrid schedule.

All YELLOW blocks of time are live zooms. Your child will either be on with me (ela, math, writing/science/social studies) or the specials area teacher (pe, art, music).

It is important that you are looking at the correct schedule! If you still do not know if you are Group A or Group B please email me!

MarchVacA is Group A and MarchVacB is Group B. Schedules are below. Click download to view and print.

Lunch for March is below. Your child can choose one option if they would like. Or you may pack at lunch and send it in.

Tomorrow at 12:15 pm I will be on my normal zoom link to answer any questions you may have ๐Ÿ™‚
