Home Learning Resources & Materials


Welcome

     Mrs. Rose and I will be using this space to post resources and materials that will allow us to work as a team to ensure your child is fully prepared for the next academic year! The activities currently posted are optional and will focus on reviewing curriculum objectives that have already been taught.

     The focus during these next few weeks will be on making a smooth transition to remote learning. I will still be using this class webpage to post information. If you have any questions or concerns, please email me or contact me through my email: niemeye@pwcs.edu.

     Please know we both miss you all very much! Continue to work hard and stay healthy, so we can end this school year LES strong!

For the last two weeks of school the students will be completing a choice board instead of the normal weekly schedule.  For those students who zoomed with us for office hours this past Friday got to see what it looked like so they were familiar with it.  You access the document the same was as the other calendars and it is titled Choice Board 2019-2020.  The choice board consists of 12 different options for the next two weeks!  Zoom meetings this week will be Wednesday June 3rd instead of tomorrow June 1st!  Office hours will be this Friday, regular times as well!  Two weeks left!!

Dear Parents,

Mrs. Niemeyer, Mrs. Rose and I will be hosting our first Zoom meeting on Friday, April 17th, during our office hours from 10:30 -11:00 am. The main focus is on previewing and answering any questions that you have about what the virtual schoolhouse will look like during this phase. We also want to try out Zoom, and make sure expectations are established, before your child experiences it next week. I will be posting the invite link tomorrow. You just need to click on it to join the meeting. Thank you and stay healthy!

Hi families! Hope everyone is doing well. We are using myON for our reading assignments this week (all of our assignments for the week can be found by clicking the link below for our Weekly Activity Guide).

Have your student log into his/her Office365 account, go into Clever, and find the icon: myON
. There are tons of books-for free! I’ve have heard great things about this site, including daily news updates that are in both Spanish and English. Take some time and explore. I believe when the students first login they will take a preassessment to help with leveling. There is also a read aloud feature.

We have uploaded a new folder under our Files and Documents  entitled, "Fun Activities". Here you will find additional activities should your family/student desire to engage in additional learning activities. This is completely optional but we know some of our students desire to engage in additional learning activity.
