Note:

Due to the fact that we are wrapping up our purple Social Studies book, we have decided to do social studies every day next week (Tues, Weds, Thurs) rather than alternating with writing! This is our last unit before the book is complete, and then we will move into May with a stronger focus on writing! While the kiddos will be completing each lesson and doing the Flipgrids, we strongly encourage them to continue writing their comics and finishing them up next week so that we can share them with classmates! Mrs. Williams has recorded a short writing video to emphasize the importance of continuing the comics and the plans moving forward! Thanks for your flexibility!! Reach out with any questions!

Knowledge 4-10

  • Immigration activity & post on flipgrid


This is normally an activity we would have the kiddos do at home during this unit and bring to school to share with the class. It is super fun and the kids learn so much about their ancestors! I hope you all participate! The document we use for this activity is below along with an example.



We have recently begun our CKLA Knowledge unit on immigration. This is such a fun and important topic to teach and learn about! Our country is unique in how it was formed, and how it continues to evolve over time. While we talk about immigration, we think it is important to understand where we come from.

This is supposed to be a fun activity to build understanding about our background and how it connects to our learning. This does not have to be specific, but rather start a conversation with your student.

We would like the students to write where they’re ancestors immigrated from (to the best of your knowledge) on both their mother’s and father’s sides of the family. We also added an “interesting fact” section where you can share the history of your family that is unique. Such as, “my great grandfather was the cousin of Elvis Presley” (not true by the way).

Weekly Checklist

  • We will be providing a "week at a glance" to act as a checklist for you and your student. Each box is a task and we put an Asterix after each assignment that we will be checking for a grade. You can print this off to help structure and organize your days.
  • Each day you should see three assignments we will be checking
  1. Math Pearson quick check
  2. Knowledge flip grid
  3. Social studies (Mon/Wed) OR writing (Tues/Thurs) flip grid
  • your teacher will be sending the checklist to you via email/class dojo

Daily Schedule

We have had several questions around how long things should be taking to complete. We have written out a rough timeline of what it could look like. Remember students will need movement breaks between almost every subject (this could be a quick go noodle!) and every student will take just a bit different timing with each subject. Some they may be quicker at and some a bit slower than we suggest. As always if it seems like this is taking WAY longer for your family, please reach out so we can help give ideas on making the process smoother.


Skills- 30 minutes

Math- 45-60 minutes

Writing- 30-45 minutes (Tues./Thurs.)

Social studies- 20 minutes (Mon./Wed.)

Knowledge- 30 minutes


*Friday's are left open for "catch up" and extension activities

Grading

As a team we have decided to continue grading as we have always graded along with taking into account participation online. We will follow the system listed below:


  • E- participated & above expectations and 2nd grade standards
  • S- participated & meets expectations and 2nd grade standards
  • N- participated & does not quite meet expectations and 2nd grade standards
  • U- did not participate

Daily Office hours

Each teacher will be hosting daily office hours where students can stop in if they have any questions on their assignments or just to check in briefly. The times and zoom links are above under Monday for each teacher.

Social Studies

Please note that from here on out we have removed the pearson part of social studies and are asking students to follow along in the purple books with Mrs.Williams & answer a flip grid question.

Flipgrid

We hope you are all enjoying your spring break! Looking ahead to our online learning next week, we are wanting each kiddo to get onto flip grid. We are going to be using flip grid each day with knowledge lessons to check in with students' understanding. Since we are using this for a check in each day, each of the teachers created their own flip grids so it is in a smaller community and will be easier for the teachers to check in with their students. Click on your teachers' name below and it will take you directly to their flip grid. Note: the password to access the site will be the same as before for each class.


Please click on your teachers name, enter password and upload your video so we can make sure every student understands how to use this platform! We would like for this to be done by Monday March 30th so we can check in with families if they are having trouble with this process before online learning starts Monday. Thanks again for all your support in this process!


The question this time is: Share how your spring break went! What did you do? What was fun? Did your original plans change?

UPDATE- ONLINE CLASSES

Good Morning Owl families!! We wanted to share with you an update on what the following several weeks of school will look like, as we will be transitioning into digital classes. Beginning March 30th, your child will be able to resume somewhat "normal" curriculum lessons, taught by the second grade team.


We will be recording videos that your child can watch at home. We will also be connecting your child to access much of the curriculum online, so they can digitally do the lessons and the independent work as well. Our expectation is 4 lessons per week in each subject: reading, math, and social studies/writing. We will pre-record lessons so you can access them when it best suites your family's schedule, however we do ask that you make roughly 30 minutes weekly available for your child to have a LIVE conference with his/her teacher and peers, via Zoom. Please spend some time this week getting familiar with Zoom. Here is the link to sign up, it is free and easy- you can sign up with a current google account as well! This will allow our classes to have face-to-face chat time to help maintain relationships and strength through this unknown time! Your teacher will reach out with more information regarding when these LIVE weekly sessions will take place!


https://zoom.us/signup



There will be a day where students can come pick up hard copy workbooks and school supplies, that date is TBD. We will also be taking grades throughout these lessons, however the format and specific grading guidelines are still being determined. More information to come!!


As always, we greatly appreciate you! We recognize that online learning has and will come with challenges, but without your support at home this would not be possible- so thank you!! We hope to help make this as smooth as possible and continue to help our Owls be successful!
