Bentley's Weekly Update 8/31-9/4

WES 5th Grade

Weekly Reminders

We will be completing a Webcam Safety course together as a class Monday, August 31. Students will then have to complete a quiz.

Once students pass this quiz, you will need to sign a form with them to turn in stating that you understand the Webcam safety and you allow or no dot allow your student to turn on their camera for our Zoom meetings.

The link to the digital form can be found below. If you need a printed copy, that can be picked up in the office any time or on the lunch line any day!



What We're Learning This Week:

Reading: I can identify the theme of a story or passage.

Math: I can multiply one digit, two digit, and three digit numbers.

Science: I can explain how energy flows through organisms in food chains.

What To Expect

Your student is expected to be active and engaged with their school work from 8:15am - 1:15pm. We will have a daily morning check-in and this will count as their attendance as well as Zoom engagement, and assignment completion. It is important to keep your student on a schedule as we transition throughout each phase of virtual and in-person learning.

Google Classroom

Google Classroom is a HUGE part of our learning process. Everyone has been added to our class! Hooray!

If I haven't added you as a parent in Google Classroom, I will can do that this week, and you will get weekly emails about your student's progress, grades, and missing assignments. This is a great way for us to stay connected about grades!

Your student's daily assignments will become live on Google Classroom at the time they should complete them. Please encourage your student to do the assignment then so that we can stay together and not fall behind!

Office Hours

We will be working synchronously (together as a class) and asynchronously (separate as individuals) between the hours of 8:15-1:15. If you reach out to me during those times, I will do my best to respond ASAP. I have scheduled Office Hours between 1:15-2:45 so I will return all contact during this time! If you are not able to talk during that time; no worries! We will make it work!
