Hello families and students,
I miss you guys! I hope you are all doing well while we take of ourselves and our community by staying home. As most of you probably know, school buildings are closed due to the COVID-19 virus through the end of the school year. I will be posting more activities and maybe, just maybe a video or two! You can find links to iReady and other Math and English Language Arts (ELA) sites to keep practicing your skills on the Madison website as well as the main district website under Student Engagement materials. Each of you should be working in iReady and READING every day! I have included the link below. I have also included the link to the Madison Library where Ms. Smith has rounded up a great collection of places to explore under the Web Resources page here. Have you been watching Ms. Overly's story time? I have and I LOVE it! We are NEVER too old for read aloud.
I know this is an uncertain time and we all want answers but the most important thing to remember is this: do your best to follow the guidelines of social distancing and washing your hands and know you are an important part of keeping everyone safe! Just like in my classroom and all classrooms at Madison, I want you all to think about what you can do that will make you PROUD of yourself at the end of the day, big or small.
I have made Google classrooms for all students and invited you through Google Classroom. If you are a 4th or 5th Grade Writer or their parent, you are already in a Google classroom for that-we use that for writing all the time! You might have been invited to another group for Social Skills or Student Skills or Math or Reading, check them out! Please check for current assignments each week, I added a Flipgrid video and am looking forward to seeing your responses. Please email me with any questions at email@example.com or just to check in! I have added a document below to assist anyone needing help in signing in to Google Classroom and Flipgrid.
Please call the main school number if you are in need of a Chromebook at this time.
Miss you all,
***(971)231-5610 This is a new phone number! If I don't pick up, please leave me a voice mail, I will be checking it several times a day
