Week of April 20th, 2020

Today is the first day of fourth quarter. The district will print, and mail all third quarter report cards to families.  You may read the first grade team’s 3rd quarter grading policy here.  No student’s grade will be lowered for the third quarter based on enrichment activities.

Wednesday will be our report card parent teacher conferences.  Please email (or Dojo message) a time you’d like to meet (by phone or Google Meet) this Wednesday to discuss your child’s third quarter grade.  I will hold conferences between 9:00am and 4:00pm.

Fourth Quarter

We are now officially in the fourth quarter of first grade.  The district will be releasing the new grading policy for the fourth quarter.  I will share it with you, once it is released.  Now that CPS devices have been distributed, I will begin setting due dates for assignments.  I will also look forward to seeing all students completing the remote learning assignments.

Google Classroom Assignments

Our daily remote learning lessons are posted directly in our Google Classroom. The code for our Google Classroom is jm7dyot. Most of the lessons are in a digital format so that your student may submit all work directly to me using paperless technology. Each day’s assignments go “live” at 9:00am. You may, however, complete the assignments at any time that is convenient for your family.

As always please continue to take care and stay healthy.

For your convenience, I am posting some more do anytime activities here.

You may also download it directly by clicking here.

For your convenience I am also including links to previous school closure packets, and all of our additional supplemental resources.

You may also download the packet by clicking here.

CPS also created a second supplemental packet.  You may download and print it by clicking here.

You may download the first packet I sent home with students here.

CPS has created fun at home projects which students may complete here.

In addition, I am including links to online resources with interactive videos and lessons which you may use during this time as well.

I love this resource which Scholastic has posted for all families throughout the United States who are learning from home due to school closures.  Here is the link for students in grades 1-2.  This website has videos as well as activities that students may use to continue their lessons during this time.  They are adding videos and activities daily.

Headsprout and Raz-Kids:  http://www.headsprout.com

Students use these two applications in our classroom daily.  Our class username is mwebb49.  Students passwords are their first names followed by their book bin number.  For example:  michelle12.  Once you get to our class page, students will know what to do.  There is a free app for both of these programs called Kids A-Z.  Your student is used to seeing the app.

Moby Max:  https://www.mobymax.com/signin/rm115

Students use this as a math resource in our room daily as well.    Students have two pictures which they have selected.  Once again, students will know what to do when they are taken to the screen.

If you’re looking for some Science resources, Mystery Science has free resources for school closures as well.  You can view them here.
