Hope everyone is doing well and in good health. Again, I highly encourage students to complete the enrichments activities posted in Google Classroom. Our focus for this week will be on text structure. There are three videos and a Google Slide presentation that have been uploaded, along with three activities. Students are to watch the videos first and then complete the activities.
In effort to keep the school spirit alive throughout our distant learning, Woodworth is having a Virtual Spirit Week. The following attachment provides the details of Spirit Week. Per Ms. Charara, once students take photos have them “tag us on Instagram @WoodworthStudentCouncil and they MUST hashtag #WoodworthStrong so we can see their photos and feature them on our page.”
It’s been a very unusual school year, but hopefully everyone is doing well and staying safe. Students have been asking about missing work and if they can turn in missing work. I’ll be completing grade inputs on Monday and students can make-up any missing IXLs from card marking 3 by Monday, March 30, 2020. Students can check which IXLs they are missing by checking student connect and the corresponding task name. Once an IXL is completed, send me an email with the IXL that was finished. Again, take care and stay safe.
Hope everyone is in good health and staying safe. This week’s enrichment activities include three ReadWorks articles. The assignments are displayed as two separate assignments, but pay attention to the “Week of March 23, 2020” which indicates the correct ones that should be completed . One article is titled, “Great Lakes? Not for Long” and the second assignment is a paired text which include “Important Inventors.” The requested date of completion is Sunday, March 29, 2020.
I have students requesting the Frida Kahlo summary activity. The following link is for the article and the summary. Although the link has more than one article, only the Frida Kahlo was required to complete. http://mrzindman.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/02/Reteach-lesson-2.pdf
Just a friendly reminder that the required work for the Week of March 16-22, 2020 is due this Sunday. I have students who have completed and turned in the work and many others who have not. Be sure to give yourself ample time finish the assignments so you’re not overwhelmed. Also, the short answer questions must be answered in a complete sentence to receive full credit.
The following assignment are due Sunday, March 22, 2020 for our online learning requirements.
- “Nadia the Willful” CER
- “Nadia the Willful” Figurative Language
- “Grandma’s House” Readworks article (The short answer questions must be answered in a complete sentence to receive full credit)
- Read daily for 20 minutes (A good fit book)
The assignments are posted in Google Classroom and all assignments will be submitted through Google Classroom.
The next few weeks of communication and learning will take place through Google Classroom. Students will be required to complete a minimum of two assignments on a weekly basis that will be assigned in Google Classroom. The assignments will be uploaded on Monday and due by Sunday. There will be updates/announcements through the blog if any changes occur. If students do not have access to internet, Comcast is offering free internet.
