05/26/2020 – 5/29/2020

Hello K-5 Families!

This week marks the last week of our school year and of online learning. On Monday, June 1st, students supplies will be picked up through carline. As a reminder, the times for pickup are based on your child’s last name.

Also, on Friday, May 29th, we will be having a special class meeting. It will be crazy hair themed and I look forward to seeing all the fun hairstyles everyone wears! We will also have a share-and-tell portion of the class meeting.

Thank you to all the parents and students of K-5 who have been a joy to have met this past year. And thank you very much to the parents of K-5 for all the work they have put into distance learning during this uncertain time. I appreciate all of your hard work and patience.

Have a wonderful and blessed week (and summer)!

Hello K-5 Families!

I hope everyone is doing well! We are nearing the end of the school year, with only two more weeks left in our distance learning.

As a reminder, starting this week no new assignments will be assigned to be graded. I did include a packet for students to work on if they have completed and turned in all their previous assignments. It contains three weeks of material to utilize.

Also, next Monday we will not be having any class meetings or one-on-one meetings due to Memorial Day.

Have a wonderful week!

Hello K-5 Families!

We are in our eighth week of home-learning and this will be the last week that students will have assignments sent out to be graded. Beginning on May 18th, no new assignments will be assigned for grades and this will give students time to catch up on any remaining schoolwork they have not yet completed. If your child is caught up and would like supplemental assignments to work on, let me know and I will gladly send them to you.

May 29th will be our last day utilizing Google Classroom and online learning. Up until that point, we will be having our weekly Monday, Wednesday, and Friday class meetings at 11am. Also, any private one-on-one meetings set up with me will continue until May 29th as well. The only day we will not be having either will be on Memorial Day, Monday the 25th.

For our Friday, May 29th class meeting we will be having a special crazy hair day meeting. I look forward to seeing all the fun hairstyles the class comes up with!

Have a wonderful week!

Hello K-5 Families!

This week in home-learning, I have added social studies and science assignments to those who wish to only do digital assignments. Religion remains the only assignments due that are only available in printed form. If you would like to switch over to digital assignments, please let me know and I will add you to the list for those instead.

Also, beginning this week I will be implementing the use of BoomCards. Through this website, students can practice specific skill sets using digital task cards and games. This is a free site to utilize and I will attach a list below of all the current BoomCards I have gotten so far. If you would like to use them, send me an email with which you would like to use for the week and I will assign them to your child through BoomCards. These are not graded and are only meant for extra practice.

As always, don’t hesitate to contact me if you have any questions or concerns during this time. I appreciate any feedback and I’m always happy to help.

Have a wonderful week!

Hello K-5 Families!

 

I hope everyone had a wonderful and relaxing Spring Break. We are now in our fifth week of home-learning.

 

Moving forward, I will be offering both printable worksheet options and online only lessons for English Language Arts and Math. Science, Social Studies, and Religion will remain printable. If you would rather your child only work on the online Language Arts and Math lessons to be graded, please let me know and I will make sure to grade them on this moving forward.

 

Next week will be continuing with our sight word lessons and finish out the last of the sight words for the year. I have added a primer sight word game to Google Classroom for students to practice with. This is not graded and is just for extra practice.

 

As a reminder, the optional home-learning packets are not graded. They are only meant for extra practice if you would like to use them.

 

Have a great week!

Dear Parents,

It is officially the third week of online learning! We have now begun using Google Classroom. If you have not yet done so, please sign and email me the G Suite for Education permission slip. Also, in the case you did not receive the email containing the sign-in information for Google Classroom, please let me know and we can set it up.

Since we have officially begun using Google Classroom, there will be some new and updated information to read below.

  • Class Meeting (Important: This will begin on Wednesday, April 1st)
    • Monday, Wednesday, and Friday between 11am and 12pm, I will be having a live meeting where we will have our morning meeting, practice concepts we have been learning such as, but not limited to, counting by 5’s or segmenting words, as well as read a story book.
    • During this scheduled meeting time, we will have a fifteen minute period where we will work on a writing journal prompt. Students will need to have a lined piece of paper to write for this activity. I will attach a printable writing sheet in the materials for Language Arts. We will also use this time to answer student questions and catch up with one another!
    • If your child is unable to attend the live video session, it will be posted in Google Classroom to be viewed at a later time at your own convenience.
  • If you would like to schedule a one-to-one video lesson for your child, I am happy to set that up! We can schedule it in advance for the week if requested.
  • If you schedule a time, please let me know what you would like me and  your child to work on, this way I can prepare the proper materials for the lesson in advance. During this one-to-one lesson time, we can go over a lesson concept, work on a worksheet together, or read a story. Your child can read a story to me as well! This time is yours to decide how you would like it to be used.
  • Each Monday, the new lesson material and worksheets for that week will be posted by 8:00am. All worksheets and assignments are due by the end of the week on Sunday.

As always, please let me know if you have any questions or concerns. My office hours will continue to be 8:00am – 3:00pm.

Have a wonderful and blessed week,

Dear Parents,

We are entering into our second week of home-learning. Firstly, I would like to say how much I have missed being able to see each of my students. I find peace in knowing that everyone is safe at home and with their loved ones during this time.

I wanted to mention a few key points of information to know:

  1. My home-office hours are 8:00am – 3:00pm. This is the time to email me, set up/have conferences, or to have me work or read one-on-one with your child.
  2. Due to the likelihood of this continuing longer, I will have students turn in their weekly completed assignments through Google Classroom at the end of each school week. I will be sending an invite and information regarding Google Classroom in a separate email.
  3. If you would like me to work or read one-on-one with your child, I am more than happy to! Please email me and we can set up a time and date to do so using Zoom.
  4. I will be beginning to post video lessons for Language Arts, Science, Social Studies, Math, and Religion.
  5. I will continue to send videos of me and my special guest (my dog, Ellie) reading a story to K-5
  6. Report cards are being sent home on Tuesday (March 24th). If you would like to set up a conference over Zoom to discuss your child’s progress and report card, please email and I will happily set up a time to do so.

If you have any questions or concerns during this time, I am more than happy to help. Please don’t hesitate to contact me over email! I hope that everyone continues to stay healthy and safe.

Have a wonderful and blessed week,
