Welcome to Life Skills
March 30, 2020Good Morning!I hope everyone is staying safe and finding fun things to do during this unexpected time at home. I will be posting an update here every Monday by 3:00 with weekly assignments, and letting you know of any updates I've made to this site. I realize not everyone will be able to do everything I am assigning, and that's ok! Just do what you can. As I stated earlier, your child will learn important life skills just by being with and interacting with you.I have added some links to my information page as well as the Quick Links section. Please take a few minutes to look at these, they contain not only the assignments I'll be giving, but good information in general.Weekly Assignments for week of 3/30 - 4/3
- Read Siberian Huskies and take the quiz Epic.com
- Daily: Do Education.com independent study packet (Begin with week 1. I recommend starting with the Kindergarten book. If it's too easy go to 1st grade; too hard, go to PreK)
- Daily: 10-20 minutes of iReady math
- Daily: 10-20 minutes of iReady reading
- Daily: Week 1 in Scholastic https://classroommagazines.scholastic.com/support/learnathome/grades-prek-k.html
- Help with chores (vacuum, dust, dishes, weed, rake, fold clothes, pick up toys)
- Get outside or do something else fun!
Again, I know not everyone will be able to do everything. Just do your best, like we all are right now :). We're all trying to figure it out. If you don't have a printer, you can adapt most of this by looking at the screen with your student and having them either point to answers or tell you.
Please feel free to email me at any time. I'm most available to answer between 8 AM and 3:00 PM, but will get back to you as soon as I can if you email me at a different time. And don't forget our weekly Zoom meetings on Tuesdays at 1:00. You should have received an invitation. If not, let me know.
We're in this together!
*******************************************************************March 23, 2020Hello Students and Families,First off, I want to say that I miss everyone! I will do my best to provide information and links to things you and your student can do at home during this time away from school. The best thing you can do is include your child in daily activities, as they will learn important life skills just by being with you.During our time out of the classroom check here weekly. I will provide links and upload different things to keep our students working, with meaningful materials that will help retain what we have learned. There is no grading at this time, but keeping our students engaged will help prevent loss of learning. Please see the QuickLinks to the right for sites you can access to keep your student engaged.
The best way to reach me is via email - I check it often throughout the day. You can also leave a message on my school phone. I will check the phone, but not as frequently as email.
Your students have their log in information to access iReady and Typing Club. Getting them onto iReady is a great way to keep them moving forward in math. I will be setting the reading section of iReady up this week. Prodigy Games is another area they can check out on the Students tab.
I sent packets home last week with materials most are familiar with. Working through 2 or three worksheets a day will help retain the lessons we have been working on.
To access student email, where I will also send links and fun opportunities:
Go to Everett Public Schools website
Click Managed Bookmarks
Click Office 365
This will bring up your students email address.
You may need to sign in again using your students ID number for sign in, and either their ID number OR their birthdate IE: (07-04) to log in.
Please stay healthy and enjoy your family time. We will be working to make sure your student has access to learning as we work together through this.
Look for alerts and email for a ZOOM session so I can face to face with the students!!
Take care, and know we are in this together,
