Hello families!

We miss our students so much! We have both opened up weekly class meetings on Zoom. It has been a wonderful way to interact with students and for them to see and interact with each other. Please contact us if your student has not been able to access these meetings so we can help.

In this packet are two weeks’ worth of work for your student, separated into week-long chunks and organized by subject:

Each week starts with this cover letter, which indicates the dates of the week for which the work is assigned.

ELA:

Spelling: 

There are four spelling activities per week, along with the spelling list for reference, which details the “rule,” or spelling pattern, that is that week’s spelling theme.

Reading/Writing: 

There are reading passages with writing and comprehension exercises. There is also a reading log for your student to respond to his/her own reading of choice.

Math: 

There are three to four double-sided math pages, just under one double-sided page per school day.

History: 

Two goals will drive history/social studies materials through the end of the school year:

States’ abbreviations and capitals: Students are encouraged to continue memorizing each of the 50 states’ capitals and abbreviations.

Try out these fun websites to practice your skills:

Try out these fun videos to learn capitals and abbreviations:

    Science: 

    Each week has a Mystery Science lesson that includes three parts:

    • A link to the Mystery Science video and a notes page for students to record new learning;
    • An activity with directions (there are directions embedded in the videos too, which show step by step guides)—these activities include most materials, though some cutting out is required, and can be modified to be done by one person but are a great opportunity to enjoy science with other household members; and
    • A quiz that encourages students to pull together what they’ve learned and make explanations about the science involved.

We are available to you and your student by email and Class Dojo if you have any questions throughout each weekday. Students can also ask questions or send us messages in SchoolWise or write a “private comment” to us on a Google Classroom assignment (this is simply a message feature through which the student and we can write back and forth without other students being distracted by it). Mrs. Tacheira, Ms. Meeks, and Mrs. Memmer are available through this method to answer student questions; they are added as teachers and page administrators to your student's "Science and History/Social Studies" Google Classroom.

Thank you for ALL you are doing to support your student, and please don’t hesitate to reach out to us if you have questions.

History: Two goals will drive history/social studies materials through the end of the school year:

States’ abbreviations and capitals: Materials are provided for students to work on memorizing each of the 50 states’ capitals and abbreviations (~25 per week).

State report: Students are asked to complete research on a state of their choice, submit notes on their research and sources, and create a Google Slides presentation to showcase what they’ve learned. The assignment is available in paper form and has also been assigned in your student’s Google Classroom Science & History/Social Studies Class.

Science:

Each week has a Mystery Science lesson that includes three parts:

A link to the Mystery Science video and a notes page for students to record new learning;

An activity with directions (there are directions embedded in the videos too, which show step by step guides)—these activities include almost* all the materials, though some cutting out is required, and can be modified to be done by one person but are a great opportunity to enjoy science with other household members. (*The first week’s activity section is optional, as materials may not be readily available at home; the video explains what happens in the experiment, so it’s not necessary for students to perform it); and

A quiz that encourages students to pull together what they’ve learned and make explanations about the science involved.

I am available to you and your student by email and Class Dojo if you have any questions throughout each weekday. Students can also ask questions or send me messages in SchoolWise or write a “private comment” to me on a Google Classroom assignment (this is simply a message feature through which the student and I can write back and forth without other students being distracted by it).

Dear Families,

We hope that you continue to be in good spirits despite the situation that we are all in. We miss our students and wish that we could be teaching in our normal classroom setting. Our administration has agreed to continue with distant learning through weekly packets that review skill-building from previous lessons. Overall, students should be familiar with the content within the packets. Please feel free to reach out to us if there are any questions about material. We have generated a list of valuable websites that can be used for additional skill-building practice.

Dear Families,

In the midst of this uncertain time, we would like to provide a skills building packet for your scholar for the next few weeks. These packets are intended to brush up on familiar topics and standards that have been taught throughout the school year. Students should feel confident when completing these assignments. They will be building their skill knowledge in ELA (reading, spelling, writing), Math, Social Studies, and Science.

In addition to this weekly packet, students can work on reading, Spelling City, Typing Pal, Zearn, and CAASPP. The CAASPP testing has been suspended for the year, however, these practice tests provide an authentic idea of testing for the future. We are working on discovering new reading online programs to help expand your child’s knowledge of reading skills and practices. If your child needs their login information, please let us know.

We miss our scholars dearly and only hope for your family’s safety at this time. We are here for you via Class Dojo and email. Please do not hesitate to ask questions about the skills building packet, additional assignments, and next steps for the remaining school year.

Sincerely,

Ms. Meeks and Mrs. Memmer
