First of all I just want to say thank you again for all your support during this virtual journey. The students and yourselves are doing a great job and I really appreciate the efforts that are being put forth. We will have a class meeting on Monday at 11:00 am, but there will not be a class meeting this Friday as the students are off due to a Staff Professional Development Day. This also means that there will be no assignments on Friday. In addition, with Memorial Day being Monday, there will be no class meeting and/or assignments on Monday. We will resume assignments and small group schedules on Tuesday, May 26th and have our class meeting on Friday, May 29th at 11:00 am.
Please make sure you have joined “Traino” class on Brainpop Jr. as there will be assignments posted there. If not, please follow the directions below to join “Traino” class on Brainpop Jr. to access lessons and assignments. I have posted a video on how to complete these steps, so please be sure your child watches that video first.

Reading: I have emailed and posted on our Reading classroom a reading schedule on when I would like to meet with your children for a reading lesson. Please let me know if there are any conflicts and I will be more than happy to accomodate times and needs. If possible, could your child please be in a workspace that will allow them to focus and attend to the reading lesson during that time.
Your child will have an assignment each day to practice the comprehension strategy of the week, unless they meet with me that day for a reading lesson. On the day your child meets with me, I will assign a practice page for them to complete after our lesson. We will meet at 11:00 and the link will be posted in Reading a little before. Monday’s group will follow right after our class meeting.
Writing: We will take a pause on poetry and begin to rewrite a new personal narrative. If they have a reading lesson with me that day, your child will not have a writing assignment. As we approach the end of the school year, we will have virtual celebrations where the students will share their poetry and their personal narratives. I am in awe of the amazing work your children have been submitting and I want to make sure that they have the opportunity to share their work with their peers and be proud of themselves.
Math: I will post a video lesson and model work using the practice pages. I will continue to post the Visual Learning videos from Pearson, but the students will still only be required to complete and submit the Quick Checks. Please reach out if additional assistance is needed.
WTW: You have received new sorts this week. Please continue with completing 3 activities from your Tic-Tac-Toe Board. Complete and submit through google classroom. Due by Thursday 5/21/20.
Science: There will be no assignment this week.
GoNoodle: Please remember to get up and move and give yourself brain breaks in between subjects! Go to gonoodle.com
As a reminder, please be sure your child reads their instructions with each assignment carefully as they may change daily.
Again, I cannot stress enough how thankful I am to have such a wonderful group of students and supportive families. Please continue to stay safe and healthy.
