Week of May 25th, 2020

Memorial Day

Just a reminder that there will be no remote learning on Monday, and I am wishing everyone a healthy, safe, and happy Memorial Day. We will have our live Google Meet on Tuesday morning at 9:00am. See you then!

Remote Learning Wind Down

As we get ready for the stay at home order to be lifted in Chicago I know that everyone’s daily schedule will begin changing. I wanted to take a few minutes to share some key dates and deadlines with all of you so that you may plan accordingly.

All must do assignments must be submitted to me by Thursday, June 11th. In order for students to earn a letter grade for the quarter I will need work for 6 or more weeks of the quarter. If students have submitted less than 6 weeks worth of work they will receive a pass for the quarter. The final week of school, there will not be any must do assignments. I will still continue to post assignments, however, they will not count towards students’ final grades.

The last week of school we will have fun live Google Meets each morning. I will record the sessions for families who are unable to attend. Here is the tentative schedule for our final Google Meets: Monday, June 15th we will have our final literacy lesson. Tuesday, June 16th students will meet to share their Science habitat presentations. Wednesday, June 17th students will meet to share their Covid-19 time capsules. Thursday, June 18th students will meet for our final class and have an opportunity to share their summer plans, and say goodbye to all of their friends.

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.
