learning plan for week of 4/13

First Grade Phase II Learning Plan 4/13-4/17


We will post the next week's Learning Plan each Friday @ 5 p.m on the First Grade Digital Learning website.

Tips for navigating the learning plan

Learning Targets: The main focus of our learning this week.

Supporting Information and Resources: These are resources for students and information for parents to help teach the learning target.

Evidence (Reading and Writing): These are activities that allow students to practice, then show their understanding of the learning target. (Seesaw Activities found here)

Practice Resources and Evidence (Math): These are activities that allow students to practice, then show their understanding of the learning target. (Seesaw Activities found here)

Learning Experiences (Science): These are activities that allow students to practice, then show their understanding of the learning target. (Seesaw Activities found here)

Extended Learning (Reading, Writing, and Math): Extra resources if your child has completed the Seesaw activities and they still want to keep learning.

Extra Ideas to show my learning (Science): Extra resources if your child has completed the Seesaw activities and they still want to keep learning.


For best results:

  • Have your child start in the left column and work across the columns to the right.
  • Seesaw Activities (highlighted in green) are due the following Sunday at 6 p.m.
  • LISD recommends students spend 4-6 hours per week, or about one hour a day, on their learning.
  • If your child is a fast worker/finisher, please have them explore the resources in the Extended Learning/Extra ideas column.
  • While your child may need some support and guidance with directions, the activities are planned in a way to allow students to complete them independently. We encourage you to use this time to allow your student to experiment independently with typing and other technology skills Seesaw could teach your student! Your child may surprise you! :)

Suggestions for Structuring Learning Time

Several parents have asked us for ideas about structuring their child's learning time. We thought others might be wondering the same thing, so we created an example of how learning time could be structured.


Suggestions for Structuring Learning Time


Your child should be working in small chunks of time (20-30 mins or whatever they can tolerate) with frequent breaks. They do not need to work on academics for an hour straight.

Check out the RPE Specials digital learning activities for Art, PE, Library, and Performing Arts for break ideas.

Please structure your child's learning time in a way that works best for your family and your unique circumstances.

Optional Zoom Classroom Meet-up Schedule

Tuesday @ 9:30 am (link to follow) - Morning Meeting

Thursday @ 11:30 (link to follow) - Lunch with the Teacher


Your teacher will call to check in on any student who is unable to attend one of our optional Zoom Classroom Meet-ups during office hours (1:50 - 3:30).

Getting Started with Seesaw

Has your child logged into Seesaw yet?


If not, please check the email from your child's teacher with log-on information. Please reach out to your teacher if you need the log-in info resent.


Students will use Seesaw to turn in activities to allow their teacher to provide feedback and keep track of student progress.
