Digital Learning-Week of April 20th

Hello, Families! Below you will find some important dates, kindergarten information, and Mt. Bethel information. As always, if you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to reach out to your child’s teacher.

This week in kindergarten..

*Our kindergarten choice board can be found here– Mt. Bethel Kindergarten Choice Board. We hope you find these activities fun and engaging for the whole family!

*Wednesday is Earth Day! Check out this week’s choice board for a fun video and activity. Challenge your family to do at least one thing each day this week to positively impact the Earth!

*Teachers will be conducting small group lessons. Please follow the directions given by your child’s teacher to participate in this opportunity. Although it is optional, we do believe that this will benefit students since most of our academic day is spent in small groups to be able to target each student’s needs.

*Mt. Bethel was able to collect 7 full boxes worth of wipes and 3 boxes worth of hand sanitizer from classrooms for our first responders. We appreciate your donations throughout the year and want to give a shout out to our teacher volunteers that collected those items from the classrooms.

Week of April 13th and Optional Class Placement Form

Welcome back from Spring Break! We hope you all had a fun and safe time off! Below you will find information per the district, our Mt. Bethel optional placement form, and our kindergarten digital learning plan for this week.

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 FIRST 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.

As a friendly reminder, Kindergarten students should continue to spend at least one hour every week day engaged in school work.

This week’s Kindergarten Choice Boards can be found here– Kindergarten Choice Boards

In addition to the choice boards and Raz Kids/Moby Max, we wanted to make you aware of some county resources that can be found on Clever. You can use this link and log on to view the resources. Directions on how to log on can be found here– Clever Directions. The username and password are the same that are used for MackinVia. Once logged in, you can find some great resources that we feel our kindergarteners will love– Freckle and First in Math. Freckle and First in Math may have a pretest to adjust to your child’s needs. If so, please don’t help them answer any because later that could cause frustration for them. It might place them in too high of a level that they can’t play independently. Please feel free to use these resources instead of, or along with MobyMax and Raz Kids to meet the needs of your child.

Have a great week of digital learning and don’t forget to utilize the resources found on the at

As always, we are here to help you!

Week of March 23rd- Digital Learning

Greetings Kindergarten Buccaneer Parents,

Welcome to week two of online digital learning! We’ve been working hard to create some wonderful opportunities for you to learn at home in addition to MobyMax and RazKids. While these two digital resources are wonderful, we wanted to provide you with some additional opportunities to work on other kindergarten standards that we would regularly teach in the classroom.

Attached you will find two optional choice boards– one for ELA and one for math. Just as their name states, these are a CHOICE 😊. The ELA choice board is integrated with some of our social studies standards for quarter 4. It focuses on The Statue of Liberty and The Star Spangled Banner. Each day, your child may choose one or more boxes from each board. We would love to see your child’s learning in action. Feel free to send us photos of your child’s work via Remind, Dojo, email, etc. (whichever platform your class uses).

Additional Skills to Practice-
*Learning your address
*Practice shoe tying
*Writing your numbers to 20 (TV teacher-see digital learning resource list)
*Letter formation (TV teacher-see digital learning resource list)

Buccaneer Families,

We will continue to update our Mt. Bethel Digital Learning site with daily morning announcements and information each weekday while we are out by 9:00 am. The Mt. Bethel Digital Learning site’s web address is: .

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 guidance for Kindergarten:

Kindergarten students should practice reading and math facts using real books and online resources such as RAZ-Kids and MobyMax. On RAZ-Kids, students will be able to read a variety of books on their assigned reading level. Students can also complete the quizzes that relate to each book. MobyMax can be used for all subject areas. There may be a pretest at the start of the skill your child is working on. It is important that your child takes this independently, so the program can differentiate for their specific needs. Please focus mainly on addition and subtraction facts with this resource.

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:

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!
