End of our Week

We are approaching the end of our first week of Remote Learning and I wanted to post some pictures I have received since my last posting. Also if you scroll a little further down you will see a couple videos of our Winn Dixie party.

If your kids haven’t already done so have them go to the Shiloh Read Aloud and listen to chapters 1 & 2. The kids can visit the page via the Stream or Classwork section of their Google Classroom. Once there they can click on the link below the chapters and answer the questions via FlipGrid.ย  ๐Ÿ™‚

Allow me some grace as you hear me read aloud. It’s very strange to read aloud without an audience. I’m used to seeing the kids’ faces engaged and thinking as I read……this is definitely a learning curve for me too!

Continue to send me pictures….I love seeing everyone’s faces. I will continue to post them here unless you specifically ask me not to.

Watch for an email regarding a ZOOM class gathering!

What have you been doing?

Well, we have had our first week away from each other and my class has done a great job learning from home. We were able to video conference twice as a class and I have had many pictures come to me that I want to share. This is what video conferencing looked like on Friday from my device. ๐Ÿ™‚


If you haven’t had a chance to yet go to this link and have your child do a quick video to share. This was so much fun. To be able to participate your child should log in using their school Gmail account. Look for me and Thor! ๐Ÿ™‚

Enjoy the photos!

Happy St. Patricks Day!

๐Ÿ€ Dear Parents,

I am attaching a PDF document here and as a link to the right of this blog post for you to have easy access to the great learning activities and links that our administrators put together for our kids.

1-Learning Resources

Please remember that all the activities I post are optional and the practice of material previously taught. So, in the spirit of this, I will not assign a Friday’s Quiz. I will continue to guide you through the material that was sent home to help you navigate the materials. Do what’s best for your family and I will support you as best I can from my home. Via email, I will share links to answer keys for the grammar pages and scholastic news as I get them loaded. I will also post them here.

Tomorrow we will have our first Google Meet Session for our class. Below are instructions on how this can be done. This is a video conference so you may have to help your child turn on the camera function of their device. Also, please remind them that it will be like the classroom if it is to be successful, we need to take turns speaking and be respectful to whoever is given permission to talk next. I’m excited to see their faces and hear their voices. If for some reason your child is not able to participate this time that is perfectly fine. We will schedule more meetings.

Instructions for Google & Google Meet

Mrs. Bretz did a great job getting us instructions and our recorders home. Today she shared a YouTube site with more guidance for our blooming musicians. Recorder Fun!

For my many, many artists in our classroom here is a YouTube subscription you might want to visit to express that creative side of yourselves. I believe he is live at 1:00 but you subscribe to his channel and revisit his videos at your leisure. Remember our 1st Google Meet is at this time tomorrow and would hate to miss you!ย  Mo Willems!

I also came across these virtual field trips! I can’t wait to check a few of these out too! Virtual Field Trips

I also LOVE seeing the pictures you are sending me of the kids. My goal is to continue to post those here so we all can continue to feel connected.
