I wanted to remind everyone that tomorrow, Monday, May 10, will be an asynchronous learning day-there will be no online sessions at 9:00-10:30 am or at 2:00-3:00 pm. However, Mrs. Koper will still have her regularly scheduled zoom meeting at 11:40 am. I have posted the asynchronous work for this week on our Brightspace classroom under the Content section (Mother’s Day Library Digital Read Alouds) and under the Assignments section (Weekly Choice Board and Tally Mark Math Activity).
We would love to see some of the children’s completed work submitted to our Brightspace classroom-there are many weeks’ worth of activities to choose from. Work that is submitted digitally gives us a much better picture of your child’s progress for assessment/reporting purposes while we are doing online learning. There is a short “how-to” access/submit classwork video posted on our Brightspace homepage.
We’ve been encouraging our students to practice daily reading using the EPIC books website using our class code mws6329. Now we are going to provide you with your child’s login information so that they will also have access to another site that we use for reading. We use the site, PM eCollection during small group reading time. It has specific levelled readers chosen for your child and their group.
The link to the PM eCollection website, your child’s login and their password has all been sent to their school email account. The children are familiar with this because we have been using it in class since February. We strongly encourage all children (reading below the level 5 readers) to use their pointer finger to point under each word as they read it. This helps them to look at the words in the book as well as using picture cues while they read, gives them practice with sight word recognition and helps to keep them from skipping/adding extra words while reading. Have fun reading!
Thank you for all you do!
Mrs. Sadlon and Ms. Panico
