Hello, parents!

Please open the attached document (PJ Day Instructions and Assigment), read carefully. On Friday, we will have our very first small group sessions! I will send an email with your child’s ZOOM ID/password and time. Please be patient as this is the first time I’ve done virtual small groups. There may be a few hiccups along the way. Thank you!

Week of April 13th – Digital Learning

Welcome back from Spring Break! FIRST GRADE’S 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 SECOND 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.

ZOOM CALL THIS WEDNESDAY (APRIL 15TH) AT 10AM! More info to follow 🙂

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

It’s ALMOST Spring Break!

Good Morning Everyone!

As you are aware, we will not be returning to the classroom this year. This is definitely not how I intended the year to end, but unfortunately, it’s the cards we are dealt with. It makes me so sad that I can’t give everyone one last hug.

Now, let’s begin our Spring Break on a happy note! Head to our Seesaw page for a video with two special guests! Sorry I couldn’t post the video to the blog. Apparently, I talk too much. 🙂

Enjoy your Spring Break!
Mrs. Robinson

April 1st!

Hello everyone! You’ve made it to the middle of the week, you can do this! Here are a few fun things and learning ideas for the kids today. As always, these are choices for you to implement as you wish. Have FUN today! Don’t try to be perfect—- there’s no such thing when it comes to parenting OR teaching! If children are busy, engaged, and happy, they are learning! Yes, learning may look like children sitting at tables with books and paper, but sometimes the BEST learning looks like playing or even making a mess — building, drawing, cutting, gluing, creating, solving puzzles, playing games … the list goes on and on! Hope your day is terrific!

Click here for Silly Pranks to play on your kiddos!

Let your child watch these read-aloud stories for today:

Here are some writing ideas if you’d like your child to write today…. or any day!

1) Have you ever played a joke on someone? Write about what you did and what happened!

2) Sometimes jokes and pranks are funny but other times they are not funny and might upset someone. Have you ever had a trick played on you that you did not like or that was not funny? Tell about this time and how you felt.

3) What’s more fun, April Fools’ Day or St. Patrick’s Day? Write about it! (*Remember for opinion writing you will state your opinion, give reasons for your opinion with details or examples, and end with a closing statement.)

4) Have you ever heard it said April showers bring May flowers? What does this mean? What are some good things about a rainy day? what are some bad things about a rainy day?

And finally, a fun sheet to do after watching Arthur’s April Fools.

We love you, Mt. Bethel students AND parents!

Hey! It’s my due date!

Good Morning Friends!

March 31st! You all know that was my new date, but Brooks just couldn’t wait to meet us any longer. 🙂 You all may be wondering how Beau likes being a big brother. Well, here’s a picture of the boys right after nap (check out Beau’s nap hair :))!

Even though I’m loving these special moments at home, I miss you all so much. I miss greeting you each morning, watching you work so hard and seeing you all realize how wonderful you are. 🙂

Anyways, let’s shake things up a bit and have a little fun breaking apart syllables! Check out the link below!
