To All Parents and Caregivers,

As we settle into this social distancing and the possibly of homeschooling if your schedule allows, I want to let you know that I am here if you need any guidance as to what we would be learning if we were at school and how you can best help continue the education from home.  I have posted a PWCS district pacing guide for parents to look at and see what we would be working on at this time. I will be commenting and notifying parents of places where the pacing guide does not reflect what we were doing in the classroom. Pacing guides are not set and stone documents.

During this time of extended closure, please continue working on the number sense unit in math.  Continue our unit on geography and how to use maps in social studies.  In language arts, students can continue working on reading books at their level, writing sentences to share our thoughts, and start researching Poetry.  For now, I recommend having the kids log into Clever and work in the APPs available on my page, READ as often as possible or be read to, explore in BrainPOP, and work in Dreambox.  And of course sending videos and pictures in Class Dojo is a fun way for them to submit their work and "chat" with me.

I have provided the following links in the "Links Tab" and "Files Tab":

* Clever (Although everyone should have their badge.  If you need another copy emailed, please let me know.)
* English Standards of Learning found on the Virginia Department of Education website
* Social Studies Standards of Learning found on the Virginia Department of Education website
* Math Standards of Learning found on the Virginia Department of Education website
* Science Standards of Learning found on the Virginia Department of Education website

There are many other resources and student activities located on the "Links Tab". Please reach out to me if you need any help navigating them or what to do next for your student. 

Please let your child know I miss them dearly and love seeing all of their student work throughout the last week!

 Dojo is how I share the majority of information, photos, student created videos, etc. so please be sure you have your settings set so you receive notifications. I'll be posting weekly newsletters each Monday!


My classroom is a place of hands-on, inquiry-based learning, and I hope if you were to ask my students what they did during school today, they would tell you they had a lot of fun while learning a lot of cool information!

"Tell me and I forget, show me and I remember, involve me and I understand."

CONTINUED EDUCATION DURING THE COVID-19 SCHOOL CLOSURE

Parents,

As we settle into this social distancing and possibly homeschooling if your schedule allows, I want to let you know that I am here if you need any guidance as to what we would be learning if were at school and how you can best help continue the education from home.  Please see the updated pacing guide in the Files and Documents folder.  This will show you the planned topics of focus in each content area, broken down by week.

If we were in school this first week of the extended closure, we would be continuing our probability unit in math.  Most of the class took their ecosystems test last Friday, so we would have been starting our geography unit in social studies.  In language arts, we would have been learning about locating answers in texts read.  For now, I recommend having the kids log into Clever and work in Moby Max, read in myON, explore in BrainPOP, and work in Dreambox.  And of course Seesaw is a fun way for them to submit their work and "chat" with me.  I've loved hearing some familiar voices!  Students should use the QR Code I posted to our class' Dojo page on March 16.
