Remote Learning Updates
Please join our Google Classroom and check it daily! As of Monday, 3/30 ALL daily lessons will be posted on our google classroom around 8am. This is also where your child's work is to be submitted on a daily basis. We will also share class anouncements on our google classroom.
If it's your first time joining, you'll need to enter the code that has been emailed to all parents.
Furthermore, XtraMath and RAZ-Kids will be daily assignments beginning on Monday, 3/30. RAZ-Kids will be in place of a reading log (I will be using RAZ-Kids as a virtual reading log).
If you have any questions, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Update 3/20: The lessons for Remote Learning have all been uploaded on the district's Remote Learning Plan website which can be accessed here: www.jacksonsd.org/rlp. Please let me know if you have any questions. You can reach out to me via Class Dojo or E-mail (email@example.com).
PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE utilize XtraMath.org. This FREE resource provides your child with differentiated fast facts practice. One complete session takes less than 10 minutes. DAILY practice on this resource is imperative to help your child maintain and improve accuracy and speed in solving addition and subtraction facts. I will be monitoring the class account to see who is completing full sessions on a daily basis (note: a session is not over until the prompt "You are done!" pops up)
Other FANTASTIC and FREE Resources that can be used:
1. Scholastic.com/learnathome: An excellent resource that I’ve already started using with my daughter! Scholastic has put together daily lessons separated by grade levels. Each lesson focuses on a topic (ie animals, weather, sound) and includes a fiction & nonfiction e-book on that topic, a related video, and an activity that can also be done.
2. Mystery Science (https://mysteryscience.com/
school-closure-planning): Tons of engaging educational videos that kids love! Choose shorter 5 minute videos or video explorations that are 10-20 minutes long and even have an optional related activity.
3. Storylineonline.net: Video read-alouds by famous actors and actresses of well-known children's books. This website offers a great variety of stories for your child to listen to!
4. Sumdog (https://pages.sumdog.com/

*Our class has Lunch from 12:55-1:25*
Your child's Student ID Number is used for buying lunch. This number links to their account, which you can add money to at any time. You will be notified when the balance is getting low. If you choose to send lunch money in with your child instead, please have it clearly labeled with your child's name.
Note: Birthday snacks are held in the cafeteria during Lunch. When sending in a birthday snack, please be sure to drop it off no later than 12:30pm. In addition, please be mindful that we are a Peanut Free class! Thank you!
Your child will be bringing books home in a special book baggie to read each night. The books your child brings home will be at his or her independent reading level and should be fun, fast and easy. Your child is expected to read 15 minutes each night. Be sure to fill out the provided reading log so I can track and reward your child's reading. Other books aside from the ones brought home from school can be used for reading homework. Book baggies should be returned daily so books can be exchanged for new, exciting books!
*Our Class has Special from COMING SOON*
Please consider joining the PTN. Your membership fee provides terrific resources and activities for our Crawford-Rodriguez students. Thank you in advance for your support!
