I hope you are all getting acclimated to at-home learning and have started the daily lessons included in the packet. I will be sending daily emails and updates. I miss everyone already! Below are two optional assignments.
1. One thing we started using in class a few weeks ago was Flipgrid. It is a way to use short videos to foster discussions. I posted a new discussion topic today, "At home, but together in spirit!" I know that my own kids are really missing their classmates and that together feeling. Maybe we can help bring everyone together even though we are all apart.
These discussions are moderated, but please supervise your child. To access the new assignment, click: https://flipgrid.com/e60adb32. Your child will need his/her login information. You can do this from a computer or an iPad. You can use the QR code or the simple student ID to log in. The logins are attached to this email. Once there, and after they read the directions and watched the short video I made, please have your child think about what he/she will say. Once ready, click the green plus sign to start the video. Follow the prompts on the screen.

2. Check out "Lunch Doodle with Mo Willems." Grab some paper and pencils, pens, or crayons and join Mo to explore ways of writing and making together.
I have updated our pictures page.
Please email if you have any questions or concerns - or even better, have your child send an email to say hello.
Have a good day,
