We will begin our year introducing the alphabet using the Fundations Phonics Program. During the 1st two short weeks, we will read Chicka, Chicka, Boom, Boom and introduce ALL the letters. Starting the 3rd week, we will focus on 1-2 letters a week. We will introduce (review) each letter, sound and discriminate between the uppercase and lowercase letter.
Reader's WorkshopIn class during our readers workshop time, we are learning how to be a Reader.We are learning that there are 3 ways to read a book...1. Look at the pictures2. Look at the words3. Retell the story
Writer's WorkshopWriter's Workshop is a designated time each day where students become “authors”.After each mini-lesson students will have independent writing time where they will choose their own topic for their writing and have an opportunity to practice skills and strategies taught in the mini lesson. By giving the students choices in their topics, the writing becomes authentic, engaging, and meaningful. During this independent writing time the teacher will be meet with individuals or small groups to conference and encourage their growth as authors.Students will learn to write, revise, edit, and publish stories throughout the school year. They will also begin to assess their own writing and learn to implement the characteristics of quality writing into their own work.
Like Literacy, the Math skills and thinking is encouraged across the curriculum. I love to incorporate stories, songs, art projects, and hands-on activities when teaching, and Math time is no exception.
You can access the website at home using the following link
- Once on the website, follow the following directions....
- 1. At the Pearson sign-in page, click the box that says Pearson EasyBridge Plus & Auto

You can expect a packet for each topic to come home This is, by no means, a requirement, but rather supplemental to what we're doing in class.
In Math, We solve and share together. We practice together. We learn together! The Vocabulary cards, again, are not meant to be 'sight' words for the kiddos...they are to be used as a tool to aid in understanding of the concept behind the word. You'll notice a pictoral representation on the back of each card. The picture and the opportunity to explore the concept of the word is much more meaningful at this developmental stage. Use the language in your day to day interactions, just as I do in class.

Chromebook Log-in InformationIn order to enhance students' educational experiences through the use of technology and online resources, the Jackson School District provides a Google Account for all students in the district PreK-12.This account information is what students will use to log into their Chromebooks. It also allows students to access a variety of online resources through our district school websites using a single-sign-on system.This account includes a Gmail address.Each students' email address is comprised of the student's uniqueStudent ID Number (Lunch number) @jacksonsd.org(Example email@example.com)A password is automatically generated by the system that is typically not easy for our young learners to memorize or type in. For ease of use for our youngest remote learners, PreK-K, these passwords have been reset to a generic password -(Sept2020).Once you have logged into your child's account you have the ability to change this password to whatever you choose. Passwords must be 8 or more characters.Keep in mind that once a password is changed by a parent, guardian, or student the district cannot retrieve the information. Therefore if you forget the password you will need to contact the technology department to have the password reset.Please do not hesitate to reach out with any questions or concerns.Mrs. Pagano-HeinElementary Remote Learning Academy Administrator732-833-4797
