We will not be having a video meeting on iLearn this week. In writing, you will notice that students are continuing the research project they began next week. If they already completed it and you sent it to me, then do not worry about extra work. Feel free to message me if you have any questions about anything!

Week of May 18

I hope everyone had a great weekend. Please check the lesson plans for this week’s assignments. Also, remember to send me photos of your child’s completed work for each day so that they can receive credit. These assignments are being used as participation grades for report cards! If students are not attempting to complete the work, they will receive low marks on their report card. We will have our class meeting on iLearn again on Thursday at 1:00. I will send out a reminder later in the week.

Let me know if you have any questions about the assignments or anything else.

Have a wonderful day!

In math this week, we will be learning how to graph and analyze data. Please make sure your child watches the videos carefully and follows along. You can choose to print the worksheets, write the answers on paper, or use the workbooks if you were able to pick them up. If you are using the workbook, you will need to skip ahead to Module 7 (second half of the book), lessons 3 and 4.

On Thursday this week, I would like to try to continue our live meetings, but we will use BigBlueButton on iLearn instead of Google Meets. Specials teachers have already been using this platform. I will provide more details as to how this will work on Class Dojo.

Reach out if you have any questions at all.

Week of May 4

I hope everyone had a restful weekend and enjoyed the warm weather and sunshine! I want to thank you all for your continued effort and support at home!
Please check the lesson plans for this week’s assignments. Let me know if you have any questions.

REMINDER:
Today, May 4 at 3:30, there will be a BigBlueButton meeting for all 2nd Grade students with Ms. McCormick. Please bring one of your STEAM creations or experiments to share. Also bring 2 pieces paper or a sheet of newspaper/store ad pages for a special project. It is also helpful to have scissors, but they are not necessary.

Here are the two videos Ms. Holmes created to help you log into iLearn:

Week of April 27

Happy Monday!

Please check the lesson plans for this week’s learning activities. Here is the link again: https://docs.google.com/document/d/14AwjrO5xzXnKYDZLch9DFwD3KaXZB6yBfN04pYCYTF0/edit?usp=sharing

You will notice that we have switched to Raz Kids for reading, as I mentioned last week in our Google Meet. Students are expected to be reading/listening to at least one book each each day and taking the quiz after. They can go back into the story to look for the answers. Please remind them to try their best to show what they know!

Reminder: Please send me pictures of your child’s writing, math, and social studies assignments after they have completed them. These are going to count as participation grades for report cards at the end of the year.

As always, message me with any questions you have. Enjoy the sunshine today!

Week of April 20

I hope everyone is staying safe and healthy. Please check the lesson plans for this week’s learning activities and feel free to reach out if you have any questions at all!

Special area teachers will start meeting virtually with students. Details about this have been emailed to each student and have been posted on Class Dojo. Have a great week!

Week of April 13

Happy Monday!

I hope everyone had a restful spring break. We will continue our online learning this week with the same lesson plan template we have been using. Here is the link to the plans again:
https://docs.google.com/document/d/14AwjrO5xzXnKYDZLch9DFwD3KaXZB6yBfN04pYCYTF0/edit?usp=sharing

The current week will always be at the top of the document. Please check for this week’s daily assignments and let me know if you have any questions.

A few notes:
*For “Listen to Reading,” please have your child listen to stories on Raz Kids or Storyline Online. Raz Kids has many books for students to read at their assigned reading level. Please refer to my earlier post about how to log in to the site. It is free until the end of the year.

*For MATH- You will notice that the assignments for each day look different than before. Please have your child watch the video for the lesson of that day by clicking the link. If there is a page of work assigned, you can print it out or just have students answer on paper and keep track of which lesson it is for. If there is no workbook page assigned for that day, students should complete math practice on Zearn for 30 minutes. Try to follow the plan for each day as best as you can.

*Also, in order to follow the governor’s directive for online learning, the district needs to know if anyone else needs a Chromebook (if you did not already get one). Message me privately if you did not get to pick one up and are in need of one. If you do not have internet access for students to complete the work, please let me know. I know many of you use the phone app to log in to Class Dojo.

As always, let me know if you have any questions! Have a great week and stay safe. I will be checking in as needed.

Check-in

Good morning! We are now in our 3rd week of online learning, and I hope you have settled into your new routines at home. Please see the lesson plans for this week’s activities. The current week is at the top- “week of March 30-April 3”. As always, let me know if you have any questions.

Raz-Kids Reading Website

Good morning everyone! I wanted to give you another resource to encourage your children to read every day. They may have already read the books in their reading bags and may be looking for new things to read. There is a reading website called Raz Kids that has made access to their site free for the rest of the year! They can listen to the books being read aloud. I created an account for each student.

First, go to this website:
https://www.kidsa-z.com/main/Login

Then, type in the code: ssuzanne2

Last, find your name and click on it. Everyone’s password is the picture of the fish. Click on the fish, then click the green “Go” button and it will take you to a wide selection of books at your reading level. Click on “Reading Room” to go to the books.

Please let me know if you have any problems logging in, or any questions at all. Again, this is extra practice as students should be reading at least 20 minutes a day.
