We have so much to be thankful for, especially each other. I will send an email with Digital Learning Plan and small group information for the week. This weeks links below.

April 27-May 1-Digital Learning Plans for the Week

Posted on

Dear Parents, I hope you had a wonderful weekend. As Bruno sang above, let’s persevere this week! Students use your grit and intellect to make this a fantastic week for learning.

Morning Announcements:
https://www.smore.com/kj568 .

Here is our Choice Board for the week!

https://cpb-us-e1.wpmucdn.com/cobblearning.net/dist/7/1201/files/2020/04/Third-Grade-Digital-Learning-Choice-Board-Final2.pdf

You will find that there are a few choices that are more than one day’s worth of material. The math workbook choice has 2 full lessons, so students definitely do not need to complete those in one day! Also, the writing choices are for the week, except for the editing activity. Students should choose one of the personal narrative activities to work on for the whole week with their published story at the end of the week. There are instructional videos for math, writing, and quite a few for OG/spelling.

A note about the OG: The first video “Drill the Deck” can be done daily for review.

As always, adapt the activities to your child and your family’s daily activities.

The Small Group Schedule and Celebrity Celebrations have been emailed. If you have questions, please email me. Remember I am here for your kiddos.

Let’s all have a great week while staying safe and well!

Happy Monday Buccaneers,

It is a great day to be alive! Check out the Andy Grammar video with his choir of kids.

I hope you all had a restful weekend. I spent most of my weekend planning for school, getting my car maintenance taken care of, and enjoying a bike ride with Chase on my new bike. We rode bikes from our house down to Azalea Drive by the river walk. Saturday was such a beautiful day.

This week we launch our small group instruction. I have attached the small groups and the syllabus that goes along with the week. I tried to give a detailed description of our learning hour and the things needed for that time. Please make sure your child has those items near them if possible.

So much to engage your kiddo.

Third Grade Digital Plan Week of April 13th-17th

Posted on

Dear Parents,
I hope you all had a wonderful, restful spring break despite the circumstances. I enjoyed seeing pictures of home projects, walks, Holy Week photos, etc. Making memories and laughter despite the challenges of Covid-19, will get us through this trying time. I look forward to corresponding with my students this week via email, zoom, phone chats, and more.

Below is the Digital Learning Plan for 3rd Grade:

Welcome back from Spring Break! THIS WEEK’S DIGITAL LEARNING AND THIRD GRADE CHOICE BOARD MAY BE FOUND AT THIS LINK.

On Friday, 4/10, the District announced that we are going to four-day digital school weeks from Monday – Thursday. Friday will be a day for students to catch-up on any previously assigned lessons. Teachers will be able to collaborate and conference with peers, parents and/or students, assess student progress, and prepare future instructional lessons. Can you have students continue to use digital tools to learn on Fridays? Absolutely! Is it required? No, but if working with a structured schedule is better for your child, then please carry on!

One of our top questions has been, “What about placement forms?” If you wish to fill out an OPTIONAL CLASS PLACEMENT FORM, THE NEW DIGITAL LINK IS HERE. If you filled one out previously on paper, you will need to complete again. RISING FOURTH GRADE PLACEMENT FORM.

Because this process of not being at school together is going to make placement more challenging, we are only offering a short window for completion. If you choose to complete the optional placement information, please do so by Friday, April 17th.

Have a great week of digital learning and don’t forget to utilize the resources at https://www.smore.com/kj568
