CHECK OUT WHAT I SAID ABOUT SATURDAY, APRIL 25!
Celebrate Earth Day!

I imagine you have all seen the letter from the district about how things are going to look a little different once we get back from spring break. (That’s right! Spring break! Ah, the trip to the beach, the Bahamas … the back deck?) I want to share a few things with you now so you can see what I’m planning for April. Then I want you to take the week of April 6 off from doing any school work. (As much as possible, we are trying to keep the structures of our regular routine going. Vacations are an important part of the school year, especially for the children. Even during a pandemic.)
One structure no one is going to miss? There will be no SBA testing this year!
One that stays in place? Yearbooks! If you ordered one, you will get one. Questions? Call Ms. Warr at 360-396-3851.
You can contact me by email firstname.lastname@example.org or you can call me.
NOTE: If you haven’t yet contacted me for the link to the site with the answer keys for the math quizzes and tests, call me. I will give those to parents. I don’t want students to have access to them.
Please don’t text me. I am not allowed to communicate with families by text.
My daily 90 minutes of remote learning will be broken down into three segments:
(There is no expectation that we will do whole group instruction via Zoom every day, but we will see how it goes for my class.) BTW, I was assigned the 3:00-3:45 time, so I can’t those accommodate parents who asked for a time closer to lunch. The school scheduled Zoom times for each grade level according to the grade’s specialist times. No one got to Zoom at lunch time since that’s the time for lunch and materials pick-up at the school.
CONTACT ME FOR THE ZOOM LESSONS LINKS IF YOU DIDN'T ALREADY GET THEM.
WEEKLY PLANS AND GRADES
I will email you my weekly plans. I will post the plans on my website. You do not have to look at the district pacing guide for ELA and math, which don’t apply to my students.
You can continue to give and grade vocab tests and math quizzes and test. Just send the results to me. As soon as your child is done with the Boy worksheet, email the finished doc to me and I will grade it.
I’ve really enjoyed seeing all my kids during our Zoom meetings last week! And I really appreciate the hard work the parents are doing now, during our state’s “Stay Home, Stay Healthy” order. I salute you all!
From Education Week--According to the latest research, the two best predictors of college success are not grades and intellectual ability. Number one is “conscientiousness” (dependability, perseverance, work ethic). Number two is “agreeableness” (interpersonal skills, getting along with other people, working well in groups).
From what I’ve observed, I would say the same is true for life after college—jobs and careers, marriage and family life. Success comes more easily for people who are willing to work hard and who are able to cooperate with other people.
