    April 6-10, 2020 Electronic Learning

    Greetings Families! 

         I hope all is well. At this point in time, your child may have completed most or all of their emergency hardcopy and online work. Congratulations and thank you for your commitment to learning. 

         Moving forward all assignments will be online. Work will be monitored and feedback will be provided. Students can gain access to their assignments by logging into Clever and clicking on my class page.  They will be listed on my web page and I will e-mail them to you as well.  Please email me if your child is having problems logging into Clever and accessing any of the new applications.

         Below is the schedule for April 6-10, 2020. All assignments are tailored to your child’s grade level and curriculum.  I am adding BrainPop and IReady to their online learning this week.  Next week you will see a few more resources.  

         I am available to help all of you and your children/grandchildren during this transition. All assignments are due on Monday, April 13, 2020  However, schedules are important for students, so adhering to the schedule is recommended. 

         I am not adding any Khan Academy or SumDog this week.  I will be adding new work on Monday.  Please finish up any remaining assignments.  If you work on SumDog or Khan Academy this week, I will count your minutes as extra credit.  I will be emailing you a list of the SumDog competition winners as soon as I can this week as well.

    There will be a project due next Friday.  Tomorrow I will be posting a Flipgrid assignment for your child and emailing a copy of the assignment to your attention.  Students can access Flipgrid through the following URL: https://flipgrid.com/kennedy456 or through clever.  There will be a MYSTERY lesson in their future!  Stay Tuned! 

    Please note: 

    I need volunteers from the 6th grade to help me by posting videos on FlipGrid with your parents permission.  All videos are private and are only shared with the class.  You will each be assigned a small script to post for clues.  Please contact me if you are up for it.  All grades will eventually be asked to volunteer.
