Happy Labor Day Weekend! We made it!
We had a productive week diving into our studies! We are off to a good start in each subject and students have now also been welcomed back by all of our specials teachers. Mr. J is teaching about the Google Classroom, Mrs. F has the students making a "WANTED" poster of themselves, Mrs. P has started teaching how to play the recorder with our new precautions, etc! Our mask breaks, water bottles, and beach towels are becoming part of our day, but each day is different and I'm trying to find time for all of the above. Mask-wearing and frequent sanitizing are going well. 6 feet apart is a challenge at times as these kids have missed being around each other for so long, but we are working on it.
We'll have a short Math quiz on place value on Tuesday after some in-class review and practice. Our Ch 1 Religion test will be Wednesday. Our Spelling Test Lesson 2 will be Friday. (Spelling Tests will always be on Friday)
As much as I'm tired of hearing "the new normal", I want to thank you for your patience as we adapt to this "new normal" at school. Everything seems to take a bit longer these days and I'm managing not only the students, but a myriad of technology! Please bear with me as I try to juggle email, Google Classroom, all the Google Apps, the Rediker gradebook, Plus Portals, textbook subscription logins, our living meetings, cameras, Ipads, etc etc etc! The theme of this year is technology overload!
Finally, we took a few of our first tests today. My plan is to get a test packet home weekly on Fridays - starting next Friday. Then, please sign and return it to school with your child within 2 school days.
Have a wonderful weekend! I hear the weather will be BEAUTIFUL!
