Resources for week of 4-20 Choice Board:

Digital Learning – Week of April 13th

Welcome back from Spring Break! This week’s Second Grade Digital Learning Choice Board can 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 THIRD GRADE PLACEMENT FORM.

Additionally, if you would like your child to be considered for placement in Mrs. Goldt and Mrs. Mullins class, please complete the 3-2-1 Opt-In Lottery Request for Goldt/Mullins. 3-2-1 LOTTERY REQUEST.

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.

We are providing digital resources, but please keep in mind analog resources such as books, flash cards, games, etc. are also great ways to spend your time!

If you have questions or issues, please reach out to our staff. We are here to help!

Specific Guidelines for Second Grade:

Second grade students should practice math skills and reading using real books and online resources such as RAZ-Kids and MobyMax.

Math – MobyMax
Math assignments for Q4 standards can be found by students in the “Assignments” tab in MobyMax. These skills will be assigned on an ongoing basis throughout the school closure. After assignments are completed, students should go to the green math icon, fact fluency icon, or numbers icon and work through other skill activities.

Fourth quarter standards are primarily a continuation of skills such as fact fluency, using place value strategies to add and subtract numbers to 1,000, and solving one and two step word problems. New skills and standards introduced this quarter are identifying shapes and attributes, partitioning of shapes, and arrays as an introduction to multiplication.

Reading – Real Books and RAZ-Kids

RAZ-Kids: Students are encouraged to read books that are within their assigned range of levels through the online RAZ-Kids reading program. Students are encouraged to read an on-level book and pass that book’s quiz each day.

Students should complete one readers response per week. Details will be posted to teachers’ blogs.

Mt. Bethel Digital Learning

Dear Mt. Bethel Families,

We miss our Buccaneers and hope that you all are well and ready to access to some awesome digital resources!

We cannot replicate learning that takes place in our classrooms/school, but we have worked to combine a variety of resources into one place: the Mt. Bethel Digital Learning Website. The web address is: https://www.smore.com/kj568

Digital learning will provide our Buccaneers with opportunities to refine previously taught skills through a variety of platforms, some funded by our District and others through our PTA and Foundation. Currently, our digital learning plan does not expect parents to introduce new standards but focuses on reviewing critical content that has already been taught. We are also focused on reading and math – the most critical skills students learn in elementary school that set the foundation for success in and beyond school.

Time expectations will include about one hour of work for Kindergarten, First, and Second Graders and about two hours of work for Third, Fourth, and Fifth Graders. Plenty of opportunities to go above and beyond are available, too!

We will provide guidance, but we fully anticipate hiccups. Give yourself grace. If things don’t work as planned at first, breathe. It is okay. While these digital resources are valuable, equally as valuable are reading real books, practicing math with flash cards or a deck of cards/dice, and discussions with families and loved ones, taking a walk, completing chores, listening to music, putting together puzzles, playing board games, or trying out a new recipe together.

Today’s assignment is for you and your child, together, to practice logging into each of the platforms. Guidance for the logins is contained in each section of the website. If you cannot log in, simply email your child’s teacher and we will get to work resolving the issue.

We also encourage you to work with your child to create a schedule outlining what time of day you are going to participate in digital learning. Don’t forget that your school schedule while you are away can absolutely include specials and recess! Brain breaks are important, too!

On Tuesday, March 17th, our teachers will post ideas of the most important subjects on which to spend time and energy.

If you have a question, do not hesitate to reach out to any of our teachers, counselors, or administrators. We are available for you!
