Hello to all of my sweet students and parents,
I am missing you sooooo much! I am super sad that we will not be able to finish this school year together in the classroom! I am missing all of your sweet hugs, stories, and smiling faces! Since we cannot be together for the remainder of the year here is our plan for the last 4 weeks.
During these final four weeks, students will have the opportunity to earn 100 bonus points to go towards the 4 core subjects (math, reading, science, and social studies) by completing work assigned by myself and your regular classroom teacher. These assignments will be on skills already learned. Each lesson should take no more than 30 minutes but may take longer. I would suggest spending no more than an hour at a time on school work and allowing several breaks within that hour to stretch, drink water, etc.
Assignments will be available starting each Monday and will be due on Friday in order to receive the points for that week.
Student assignments will look like this:
Reading - 3 iReady lessons a week
Math - 2 iReady lessons a week
Science - Each week, students will watch a video and complete a quiz.
Social Studies - Each week, students will read an article and complete a quiz.
In order to get the full 100 bonus points, lessons must be completed with high accuracy. Each week, students will earn 50 points for completeness and 50 points for accuracy. For accuracy, after all 4 weeks have been completed, I will average the grades for all the assignments in each subject. Students will receive points based on their average as follows:
● 12 points for an average of 0-25
● 25 points for an average of 26-50
● 38 points for an average of 51-75
● 50 points for an average of 76-100
The link to i-Ready is on my teacher page as well as your other regular classroom teachers. The assignments for science and social studies are on your regular classroom teacher's teacher page or google classroom.
I am available from 1:00 - 3:00, Monday - Friday. Please don’t hesitate to email me with any questions! My email is firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you for all that you are doing to help your child! I cannot wait until we can see each other again! Stay well and stay safe.
