Switlik's Read the Movie Challenge
Students were sent home with their own copy of Charlotte's Web and a letter explaining the Read the Movie Challenge. The "Flat Wilbur" was sent home with students attached to their Spirit Week Schedules. Below are links to the spirit week schedule and the suggested schedule for when to read each chapter. Enjoy Reading!
Below is information and resources on instruction and how we will communicate throughout the school year.
Class Page: Our class page will be updated daily with any important information that is happening in our classroom and announcements that pertain to our class, school, and community. This is one form of communication that is used throughout the year. This website can also be used to access digital resources, tools and remote learning expectations.
Google Classroom: Our google classroom is where assignments and lessons will be posted throughout the year and where students will submit their assignments.
Google Meet: Google Meetings will be held each remote learning day. The link to access the google meet will be found in the google classroom. Please review google meet expectations.
Bitmoji Virtual Classroom: Bitmoji Classroom can be used to access online websites and tools that are used in the classroom and for remote learning.
On the days that your child is not in school, they will be expected to log into Google Classroom for attendance and to complete on-line assignments. We will also have a Google Meet to check in and review work at the end of the day. Our assigned Google Meeting will begin around 2:20-3:15pm. They are mandatory to attend in order to get credit for attendance on remote days. The District Tech Tool Kit and Student/Parent Tutorials are available to help you with some common tech problems and document questions.
Chromebooks have been provided to each student for use at home and in school for the duration of the 2020-2021 school year. Please remember to bring your chromebooks to school each day and charge every night so they are accessible for in person and remote learning. Please review chromebooks protocol and expectations below:

We encourage each child to bring in a labeled water bottle each day.

We are a nut free classroom.
We have provided everything your child needs to have a successful year in 2nd grade. If you would like to bring in a small pencil case to keep inside their desks please make sure it is labeled with their name on it. It is also recommended to have an extra mask or 2 kept in your child's backpack incase one gets misplaced or dirty. Please remember that it is mandatory that children wear masks all day.
Planners: We will use the planner that was sent home 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.
Chromebooks: Please bring your charged chromebook to scool each day.
Take Home Folder: I will be provifing a Switlik homework folder for students on the first day. This folder is to come back and forth with them to school each day. Please use this folder to send in important notes and/or homework.

What is Bucket Filling?
Actions or words that show that you care about someone. Saying or doing something kind. Giving someone a heartfelt smile. Using names with respect. Helping without being asked. Giving sincere compliments. Showing respect to others. There are hundreds of wonderful ways to fill buckets. The language of bucket filling has become synonymous with being kind and thoughtful. Your bucket will be filled when, at the close of each day, you reflect on the ways in which you have filled buckets.
