Hello there! I just want to take the time to thank all of you for your hard work! Whew!! I know how challenging online learning is for all of us. Trust me, I am learning right along side all of you! Thank you for your patience and cooperation. It means the world to me and is helping make our days go more smoothly.
Today during our Zoom meeting, I stressed that spending 15 minutes each on Raz Kids and Zearn every day is vital for your child’s success in first grade; it also helps prepare him/her for second grade. I receive a report at the end of the week indicating how your child is doing. If I see that your child did not log on all week, we have a problem. I am trying to only assign a few things each day as to not overwhelm anyone. I have to say, I am very impressed with some of my first graders’ stamina! Hamza spent over 4 hours on RazKids last week and is earning a special prize for his hard work! Woohoo! Julia is also receiving a prize for her hard work on Zearn. She is right up with us on lesson 8! Way to go to Hamza and Julia!!
I have include big colorful buttons on Schoology to help you and your first grader keep organized on their assignments for each day. If you click on them, it will take you to that day’s assignments. Also, you can click on the “Work for this week” blue folder, and it will do the same. All assignments are also listed on the right column on the screen that says “Upcoming.” So, you have 3 places to look. Have your child practice on where to find their assignments. I’m hoping your child will be able to log in, navigate to Zoom, and find their assignments all on their own very soon! If you are looking for a calendar that you can print out with the week’s assignments, that is located in the blue “Work for this week” folder.
Have a great night! See you at 9:00 for Zoom tomorrow!
