Thank you!

Wow. Thank you for teaching your children for the last 12 weeks. Thank you for being role models for our future citizens. Thank you for your feedback. Thank you for your tech support. Thank you for your patience. Thank you for your good humor. Special shout outs to our parent org rep, Luz Iniquez, our service coordinator, Joe Ross, our auction parent, Cassie Jenkins and our room parent, Aileen Angelo.

Summer Resources:

Mathwhizz, ExtraMath, A-Z Reading and online science resources (FOSS) continue. Another skill for summer practic, typing skills.   All fourth graders have accounts at https://www.typing.com (I avoided this focus during distance learning to avoid digital overload).

 

The hard copy summer math packet will be ready for pick up on Friday.

From Mrs. Lawler’s webpage:

Students in grades 2-4 will receive a math packet and are encouraged to read 20-30 minutes a day. Kids A-Z reading resources will also be available.    We highly encourage you to keep your student on the suggested schedule so they can maintain the skills they have learned this year! 

Math Whizz and XtraMath will be available to your students throughout the summer. We recommend that you continue to use these resources as well!  For optimal results use Math Whizz for 45 minutes a week and XtraMath 3-5 times a week.

Resources for Family Discussion:

I spent some time this week gathering resources and consulting with other teachers about books, videos and lessons that can spark discussions on race and activism with our children. Many of the books are designated for children ages 4 to 8 but not every child has the capacity to handle super difficult topics. You know your child best. View these first before sharing with the young person in your life.

 

I wanted a manageable list but then realized our needs are as diverse as our community. I’ll put the start of the list in the body of this newsletter. The entire document is a second page in the Newsletter Archives Tab.
