Hello, Room 22 families!
I can’t express to you how wonderful it is to have students back in the classroom! Procedures and worktimes are quite different, but simply having face-to-face interactions makes for a joyous day! I continue to ask for your patience as I navigate the logistics of delivering lessons to three cohorts of students. If you have any questions or concerns as we figure this out together, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or send me a Remind or Itslearning message.
This upcoming week be on the lookout for your child’s “regularly scheduled” required assignments to be shared on Itslearning. These include: daily lesson followup works, a ReadWorks comprehension activity, and a Saxon work. All students are expected to spend at least 30 minutes on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday on iReady. 4th graders should read at least one story on Amira on Tuesday and Thursday. Your child will get a new spelling and vocabulary list Monday. The spelling quiz and vocabulary activity is to be completed on Friday. As always, I will provide choice work suggestions in the “Announcements” section of ItsLearning for you child to complete. While not required, these choice works are a great supplement to the curriculum and can be a lot of fun, too! We will be following the Zoom lesson schedule that is posted on your child’s ItsLearning calendar.
It’s going to be a beautiful weekend! Enjoy it!
