Hello and Welcome,
This is an amazing time to be teaching and learning. Feelings of confusion, uncertainty, and fear are normal. I have been surprised by the tenacity, perserverance, and grit my students have shown early on this year. I hope, with your partnership, we can mirror these same vales despite what we are feeling. Together we can get through this!
I know online learning will be a challenge, but I would like you to KEEP TRYING and remember that I am here to help and support you.
I am available for you and if you have any questions or concerns, please don't hesitat to contact me via email at firstname.lastname@example.org
I'm looking forward to working with you online.
Remind students that they need to do 30 minutes of AR reading every day. They can read an AR book on Epic OR any AR book they want and Email me the title, number of pages and what they liked about the book so far in a couple complete sentences each time they read. This is for a grade.
The School requires daily use of I-Ready in Math and Reading. I do give time in class. Students need to complete 2-4 topics (or more a week) for growth.
I encourage the Magic 10. 10 minutes in Typing Club, NoRedInk, ReadMore, and any of the programs on our Learning tools. This can be done during Directed Independent Learning.
