I bet you can’t tell how excited I am that I will be seeing some of you starting October 5th!! We are finally getting the chance to meet face to face!! But, there will be some new things in place for safety!! Don’t forget your mask! You will need it in specials! When you enter the lab, you will be instructed to sit at a station-NOT on the floor. We will skip every other station in the room to provide some social distancing. Be ready to listen to directions so we can get in and get started! You will also need to bring YOUR OWN headphones!! We will not use the lab headphones during class!
HI Eagle Families!! It is week 3 and CTLS has gone through some changes and upgrades. If the system is down, your teacher should have provided a link to my Zoom meetings. Please only use this link if the system in down. You will need to be able to access CTLS for many parts of the lesson during our synchronous time or soon after, so it is best to access CTLS first. Plus, it’s how we know you attended class for the day!!
Here is the CTLS Down Detector:
The 2020-2021 school year is here!!
I am so excited to be back at Eastvalley! I know the start of the year is going to feel very different, but we are going to have a great time! It’s okay to feel anxious and nervous about online learning. Cobb has been working hard to put together CTLS for teachers, students, and parents. I know it will take some time to get used to working within the CTLS platform. Just take it easy and take your time. We are here for you!!

Happy Earth Day!!
Earth Day was started on April 22, 1970 to help the world recognize how important is it to take care of our surrounding areas. It’s a big job and you can take part every single day!
Here are some ways you can help protect the earth:
- Turn the lights off when you leave the room
- Limit the time you take a shower
- Don’t litter
- Plant trees, shrubs, or other flowing plants
- Don’t throw medicines away by flushing them down the toilet
- Don’t throw paint away in liquid form…dry it out with kitty litter and turn it in to a paint recycling center
What other ways could you help Mother Earth? Padlet Link
Add your suggestion to the Padlet link. Click on the pink circle with a white plus sign +. Type your name as the “Title” (first name only) and add your suggestion in the “Write something” section.
Try some interactive activities.
I had a great read aloud yesterday, April 20th, with several Eastvalley Eagles. I loved getting to see everyone! I read one of my favorites, Dragons Love Tacos by Adam Rubin. The book was shared with the permission of Penguin House for use during the Covid-19 Pandemic. Afterwards, we had a fun Kawaii drawing session and drew a taco.
Use this link to view the read aloud. You will need to sign in to your O365 account to view the video.
Here is a picture of some of our drawings:
Sanjiv sent me a close up of his:
If you have a taco drawing you want to share…please email a picture of your taco and I will add it to the blog.
I love that Marcus sent me a picture of his drawing!! Thank you Marcus!!
Here is a video that inspired my taco Kawaii art:
Please join me as I read Dragons Love Tacos written by Adam Rubin. I love this story! It is very silly. Afterwards, I will show you how to draw a Kawaii taco. You will need to have some paper and a pencil ready after the read aloud. It will be step-by-step and you don’t need any drawing experience to take part!
