Hello Kindergarten Parents: Beginning TOMORROW, March 19th through Friday, March 27th, children are to use the packets that we sent home. These will NOT be graded, but are to be used as you see fit to practice and review information.
*Literacy: Literacy tasks on Edgenuity based on your child’s current skills level. A note is coming home today with the directions on how to access Edgenuity with your child’s ID number on it and the password. A QR code is attached to the letter if your child is using a tablet. There is an option to scan the QR code instead of entering their ID number. The Dreambox code is the turtle. I also sent out a link today for Miss Primm that will walk you through signing on, if you’re having difficulty.
*Math: The math packets for our topics on shapes. Dreambox and Edgenuity are also great options for math.
*Writing: Your child may write on the topic of their choice daily. Remind them to begin their sentences with capital letters, use punctuation at the end of the sentence, tap out the words to help them with their spelling and use finger spaces between words. It is important for them to try and spell the words independently using their letter/ letter sound knowledge.
*In addition, a Morning Wake-Up Book containing various spelling and math activities is being sent home along with some Social Studies activities. I have also emailed a resource page with activities, as well as, the learning website tab on my Weebly. THIS FRIDAY!!! I would love to see all your faces. Please join me Friday at 11:00 on zoom (an online group meeting). Just click on the link below and enter the Meeting ID at 11:00 Friday, March 20th. I plan on setting up days and times next week, also. This is our first attempt at this, so please email me if you are having trouble logging on. I will be checking my email on my phone while we are all trying to join the meeting. I would be happy to email or speak on the phone, but I feel that the zoom platform will be more beneficial for everyone. It will allow the children to interact with me, as well as, each other. It will also eliminate miscommunication that sometimes happens via email and texts. I would like us all to become familiar with it as it may be a learning platform in the future. Marcy Abbate is inviting you to a scheduled Zoom meeting. Time: Mar 20, 2020 11:00 AM Eastern Time (US and Canada) Join Zoom Meeting Mrs. Abbate's Happy Friday Zoom Link Meeting ID: 633 010 2423
As far as moving forward we are yet to get any information from the district - so in regards to March 30th - Stay Tuned. We will let you know anything we find out as we get more information.
Hope to see you all Friday on Zoom!!! Love, Mrs. Abbate
