                                                                                          ~IMPORTANT~

    Please see REMOTE LEARNING PLAN WEEK 2 for week of Monday, March 23rd.  The Remote Learning Plan for March 30-April 8 will be posted here at 8:00 a.m. on March 30th.

    Information about this will be posted on the District Page and also the Switlik Page beginning Monday.

    We will also be available via email AND CLASS DOJO from Monday to Friday during the normal school hours to help you with questions or if you need assistance! 

    In preparation for this, the children were sent home with journals, and a fresh selection of Fiction and Non-Fiction books from the classroom. I encourage you to use those supplies as needed to help with the assignments in the Remote Learning Curriculum.  We also sent home their student ID cards.

     

    Remote Learning Information:
     
    The district will be posting work for up to 10 days (if needed).  They will have a daily schedule to follow.  If you CANNOT print out the materials/worksheets...NO WORRIES!  Feel free to use the journal that was sent home or any paper you have at home and your child can complete it on that.  
     
     It is suggested to try to do at least 1-2 hours of work with your child each day.  While this may seem like a lot....it can be done in a fun & creative way!  We are hoping that 30 minutes of that time will be spent on independent reading.  Also, if you play any kind of board games with letters, words, numbers or counting skills....that would be an awesome way to incorporate daily practice! 
     
    STUDENTS CAN ACCESS THEIR FRECKLE ACCOUNT USING CLASS CODE - 25jjh5.  Information on EPIC books online was sent in ClassDojo, here is the link for our class Epic Books

    The Ocean County Library link is here  http://theoceancountylibrary.org/node/227

    Students may also enjoy GoNoodle.com

    and Art Hub (on you tube).

     

    Don't forget to allow time for some physical activity!  
     

    Thank you all for your support, patience, and most importantly your dedication to your child’s education!

    Below you will find a message from Scholastic about remote learning at home.

     

     Dear Families and Caregivers, We know that missing school isn’t easy for your kids—or for you. But we also know that there are simple ways to turn unexpected time at home into exciting opportunities for your students to learn, think, and grow. That is why we’ve created Scholastic’s Learn at Home website. This free resource provides your children with 20* days of exciting articles and stories, videos, and fun learning challenges. Children can complete them anytime, in any order. They can work on their own or together with you and your family. www.scholastic.com/learnathomeOur active learning journeys are available on any device and will provide your child with up to three hours’ worth of exciting learning experiences per day. They can go on virtual field trips, meet best-selling authors, or dig deep into a topic they love. We hope that you and your children stay safe and healthy, and wish you the best of luck during this stressful time. With best wishes from all of us at Scholastic, Lauren Tarshis Sr. VP, Editor in Chief & Publisher Scholastic Classroom Magazines *The site will be updated weekly until all 20 days of content is available. If you have any questions or suggestions, please reach out to me at ltarshis@schov

     

     

     

     

     I promise everyday your children will learn something.

    Some days they will bring it home in their hands.

    Some days they will bring it home in their heads.

    Some days they will bring it home in their hearts.

     School Supplies - Your child will be provided with all of their basic school supply needs (planner, folders, notebooks, crayons and pencils) to start off the school year.  It is suggested that your child have a backpack, and some extra pencils.  Also, your donations of tissues and wipes are always appreciated.


    Planners - We will use the Planner as a communication tool between our class and your home.  Homework and reminders will be written there each morning.  Please sign the Planner and review the Homework folder on a daily basis.  A written note is required if your child is to be picked up early, or is not to go home on the bus or to Childcare.

     

    PLEASE TRY TO MEMORIZE BUS # AND STUDENT ID#.

    Note: Our classroom has air conditioning, but it can get pretty chilly after being in the room for some time. I recommend bringing in a sweatshirt/sweater each day to have just in case.


     

    Parents: Reading each day for 2 steps (30 minutes) is a recommended part of our nightly homework.  Please sign the reading log each day if you see or hear your child reading.  We will also complete 2 steps during the day.
