Distance Learning Week 5

Weekly Updates 4/14 - 4/17

Be sure to check back here for updates throughout the week. I try to post here instead of sending out as many reminds.


  • Due to the potential for further spread of the COVID-19 virus, the Governor of Missouri has closed schools for the remainder of the school year. Per the state’s direction, “schools will continue remote learning for their students until the end date previously set on their academic calendars;” therefore, virtual learning and packet learning formats will continue through May 29 in the Waynesville R-VI School District. Food service is scheduled to continue through May 29. No decision has been made regarding summer school.
  • Please try to get on Moby Max and practice your fact fluency daily. It is important to have your multiplication facts down prior to fourth grade.
  • Helpful hint: If a video is not loading, try downloading it to your device.
  • Please understand that lessons are not "one size fits all". If you are noticing an assignment is too long or too difficult, feel free to split up the assignment or do every other question.

                                                    Video Conferences

                                                    This week I am going to hold group conferences. Conferences will be Tuesday-Friday from 11:30-12:00 (no school Monday). Please be sure your child has everything out that they have been working on during their video conference as I will be asking them to show me.


                                                    I will be posting our Zoom link in our Google Classroom and also send it out through Remind. Students will need to meet with me at least once a week. However, they are welcomed to come to as many group conferences as they would like. After students share their current work, I may do a read aloud or students can have a few minutes to say hello to their friends. This will be a great time to ask clarifying questions as well.


                                                    If you cannot meet during this time frame, please let me know and I will try to schedule a time that works for the both of us after those hours.
