FAMILIES!!  Wow!! We had a great 2nd week at home learning!  Here is a recap of our online success…

RAZ kids- I had 19 students log onto RAZ kids this week, which is a 79% participation rate…I am ONE happy teacher!   I have noticed some great reading minutes this week from 19 of my students! Keep up the great work at home and remember, students should be reading 20 minutes a day! Also, please make sure your child is keeping track of the minutes read on their reading log:)

Seesaw-  I love being able to see all of your hard work on Seesaw!  Sight words are going great in Room 42 and I loved hearing my students read their subtraction sentences and solving the problems:)  Also, please watch the video I uploaded on seesaw, explaining the RAZ kids program for you:)

Seesaw sight words- 83% of my students uploaded a video of them reading off their sight words!  I am so proud of my 20 students that submitted their work! I love this program because I am able to assess my students and give feedback to my students that submit their work from home.  Also, while watching the videos, I am able to provide my students additional activities to challenge them more, that’s why completing these activities is so important and fun to do! Job well done Room 42!

Seesaw subtraction- 20 students (83%)  submitted the subtraction activity!  If your child would like more practice with their math skills, they can visit MATH SEEDS for additional work online:)  

Seesaw Show ‘N Tell- The videos are still coming in and I LOVE each and every one of them.  We learn something new each week about our friends and I truly love that about this activity!  Keep the videos coming!  

Math seeds- We had 9 students that logged into math seeds this week!  If you want more work for your child in math, please visit this FREE program offered to you by Haigh. 

Reading Eggs- I had 5 students who logged onto reading eggs this week.  In addition to RAZ kids, I can monitor your child’s reading activities and lessons on reading eggs as well!  Another great program that Haigh offers to our families:)

Side note: Please make sure your child is learning their sight words (100 total), completing 1 eureka math lesson a day and 1 writing prompt a day as well:)  Thank you!

Remind app/email/seesaw- As always, please email, text me on remind app or contact me on seesaw if you have any questions.  I have enjoyed talking with my families and students this week and I am excited for Week 3 Learning!

Hello Families! I am writing this blog in hopes I can help organize your week a little better:) Things to complete this week:

Reading- Make sure to complete 20 minutes of reading a day, either on RAZ-Kids, Reading Eggs or a book from home. If you read a book from home, make sure to fill out the comprehension sheet that I have attached here for your convenience:) https://drive.google.com/file/d/1HwF4Kdvk_0SS7IYmCr1a3MTOFHsMtKiA/view

Also, make sure your child is documenting the minutes read on his/her reading log.

Sight words: Activity on SeeSaw:) Activity is due March 25th!

Lessons this week are: Module 4: Lessons 37-40

**There will also be a subtraction activity to complete on seesaw, so I can assess how my students are doing in this weeks lessons<3

Go on Math Seeds for additional learning:)

Writing: Complete 1 writing prompt a day (5 total). Use 3 complete sentences. Here is a writing page to use for your convenience: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1ec1Avl4cy-dk0AzdOUdt_f_qfjGYNeeB/view

As far as Extra Curricular, please visit the Haigh Staff link to find out what our specials teachers have planned for your child: https://haigh.dearbornschools.org/staff-contacts/

Parents, please work at your own pace. Please do what is best for you and your family. I know there is a lot of speculation about At Home Learning (home school) minutes not being counted, but congress and the Michigan Department of Education are STILL trying to come up with a plan for our students and teachers. My best advice for all of you is to keep your child(ren) learning while away from school! In my opinion, this is a win, win situation! Your child is still learning and you are keeping your child ahead of any type of learning slide. Also, if these minutes do end up counting, your child will be one step ahead of the game. I am here to support you. Lots of LOVE, Mrs. Fillmore

p.s, we are supposed to have some nice weather this week!! Bring the learning OUTSIDE when you can! xo

RAZ kids- I have had all but 4 students who logged into their reading this week. That is an 82% participation rate…I am ONE happy teacher! I have noticed some great reading minutes this week from 20 of my students! Keep up the great work at home and remember, students should be reading 20 minutes a day! Keep in mind RAZ kids is done 3 ways: Listen to the story, read the story and take a quiz. When your child is finished with their story, you should see 3 green check marks-I have posted a picture of what it should look like when your child is finished with a book:). While monitoring online, I have noticed that some students have not completed all 3 parts to each story, so please be aware of that when your child is on RAZ kids:) Thank you so much!

Seesaw- I love being able to see all of your hard work on Seesaw! I also love the video comments and pictures we all get to share with one another during this time away. Keep your eye out for a fun activity coming on Friday (tomorrow)- Seesaw Show ‘N Tell!! Woo hoo!

Math seeds- We have had an 82% rate on math seeds as well this week, that means 20 students have been on Math Seeds!

Additional Chromebook Pick Up Day!

Afternoon Haigh Community,

We are currently working on setting up an additional day to pick up chrome books from Haigh. If your student needs a chrome book, then please complete the survey below. If you have already received a chrome book, then please do not take the survey again( we can only do 1 chrome book for each family that needs a computer at home). I will be sure to share out the date and time in the near future for the next chrome book pickup. We will need a few days to clean and prepare the chrome books prior to handing them out. Thank you everyone for your support and understanding 🙂
