What Do I Do Now?  Backup Plan for Remote Learners

 Dear Parents,                                                                                                                                  As you well know, we are often unexpectedly separated for umpteenth reasons—lost internet connection, fire drill, teacher meeting, etc.—so I am offering a few options to students when they ask, “and what do I do now ?” (thanks to a parent's suggestion)

·         * On the Pearson site  read any of the ten leveled readers I have assigned for Unit 1  (all on animal theme).

·        * Work on consecutive pages in Universal handwriting workbook.

·        * Watch any of the videos I assigned on

·       *  If parent is available or child can read,  work on “Guided Instruction” pages in the Math Progress workbook 

*** I will offer further options by next month.

Lesson Plan for 11/16 to 11/20

***This week on Wed. we are celebrating Mickey and Minnie Mouse Day. Students may dress up and wear makeup. On that day also it is my turn to have Edgenuity training from 12:00 to 12:45 so I will not be available during that period.  Please remember that this week we have quizzes in Reading, Writing, Math, and Social Studies--one each day.

Notices for Week of Oct. 19 to 23 for First Grade

 Dear Parents,

          It's almost time for report cards! In early November I will be conducting a zoom meeting individually with each parent to discuss your child's progress. Also I wanted to let you know that we may be having an evacuation PRACTICE with the children coming up when all will be required to leave the building for a period of time. I will also be meeting with the coach this Wednesday for another Edgenuity training for about a half hour. I will also let you know when the students will be able to take their first diagnostic test for this new program.

Please continue to check google classroom as before for daily homework assignments and notices about upcoming tests.  I have adjusted the schedule to allow for the computer period in the morning, recess in the yard on Wednesdays and Fridays, and periods for the Edgenuity program.
