Welcome! I just want to welcome everyone to a new school year. Over the past month we have been working hard at home while we participate in our online, distance learning model. The students have been doing a great job and we all look forward to coming back into our school building in October and learning together! This page has been updated with the most current information. Please feel free to look through the pages. More updates will be coming in October.
Scholastic News Reading for the Month
During the month of September, students have had the opportunity to read issues of Scholastic News. Our weekly article is posted in Seesaw and also in the packets handed out at our materials pick-up day at the beginning of September. Each individual article can be read using the Scholastic News Classroom Page- in the curriculum links tab with our class code- webbread. I encourage your child, if possible to go to the Scholastic News site and look at our weekly article. Thanks for your reading support!
Reminders about Online learning!
Here are some reminders that will help students have success when learning at home.
Attendance is posted in CLEVER and students need to do this every day we have school. All they have to do is go to clever, open the smile attendance icon, type in their name and "yes" they are present for the day. Please make sure you remind your student to do this right away in the morning as we are trying to build a good school routine everyday. If your student does not do their attendance and I see that they have not completed daily assignment, they will be marked absent the next day. Thanks for your help!
Weekly Assignments in Seesaw-
Every school day, students will have assignments posted in Seesaw. Usually these assignments will be extensions of activities that were introduced or explained during your students whole group, Zoom times. Remember- When a student is not directly interacting with Mr. Webberley through Zoom, they should be following their independent schedule and completing their assignments in Seesaw. Currently, we are trying to establish a good learning routine so please help and remind your student to follow the schedule during their independent work times-printing it off to have nearby might be helpful. Hopefully, the routine becomes something that students can do by themselves and they will eventually need less adult support as the weeks move on during the month. Thanks again for your help!
Wednesday-Independent Learning 9 AM-3:25 PM.
On Wednesdays, students are independently working on Seesaw activities all day that will be assigned on Wednesday mornings. Students should continue every Wednesday logging in at 9 AM, doing their attendance and completing their assignments throughout the day. A Wednesday schedule was sent home last week to help guide your student during this day as they work. Once again, we are trying to build a learning routine throughout the week so having these schedules accessible will help your student have more success at remembering their daily schedule.
Online Learing Sites-Used during Independent work times
Currently, students have been working with both Lexia and Epic for reading support. Later this week, students will be introduced to two more learning sites-Spelling/Vocabulary City and RAZ Kids. Spelling/Vocabulary City will guide students with specific lists of words so they can better understand letter sounds, combinations, usage and word meanings through a variety of engaging, online activities. RAZ kids will also be introduced to students as this reading practice site offers students opportunities to read leveled fiction/nonfiction books based on our school districts F&P leveling system. This program offers and tracks both fluency and comprehension growth. allowing students to work their way through reading levels from level A-Z. Students will begin at a reading level based off of the reading level they had when they finished first grade last year. Look for an email/link with this username and password info. later this week. The same email will also be sent to the student's email address. A RAZ Kids and Spelling City link will be also posted in CLEVER for an easy way for students to log-in.
Specialist for the week- Seesaw Assignments Mon./Fri and Zoom Meetings Tues./Thursday
Every week we have the same specialist for the entire week. Our specialists are for P.E., art and music. During the week both A and B groups will have guided Zoom meetings with one of our specialist on Tuesdays and Fridays. On Mondays and Thursdays, students in our classroom will need to go to Seesaw and click down on the left to open the P.E. classroom tab to access their online, specialist assignment work for those two days.
Thanks and look for more updates in October.
