Now that the kids have Book Club books, we will start meeting in small groups. Small groups will last about 25 minutes. Here are the times moving forward:
- Monday/Wednesday at 11:00 - Jayden, Tae-shawn, Tiana, Olivia, Paisley
- Monday/Wednesday at 11:30 - Jacob Mizzi, Autumn, Emelia, Shelby, Sophia, Aaliyah
- Tuesday/Thursday at 11:00 - Jacob Allen, Cam, Lucas, Alexis, Elli, Logan
- Tuesday/Thursday at 11:30 - Ella, Elena, Noah, Nick, Hannah, Yuliana
Our assignments and activities are designed to be completed in 20-45 minutes. If your child is completing work in consistently less time than that, do let me know! We now have a topic in our Google Classroom entitled "I'm finished! Now what?" Just as in the classroom, some students will finish faster than others based on their mastery of or interest in the concept. They can choose from any of the options if they have extra learning time in the day. (Also, if your child is taking more than 45 minutes on any one assignment, do let me know! We may need to adjust their plan)
Each Friday we will have a short "Show What you Know" math quiz. Please do not help your child with this assignment. We will use this check in to determine the concepts the students have mastered and those that require more practice.
Specials classes next week (Sept 28-Oct 2) will be live. Kids should sign in to their Zoom specials class at 10:00. Our schedule and their Zoom links are the Google Classroom topic "Zoom Links, Specials Classes and How to Videos"
Managing your Google Classroom Assignments
There have been a lot of questions about how to navigate Google Classroom. I went through this presentation with the kids, but thought it might be helpful for you as well. It is also posted in thier "How To" topic in Google Classroom.
