A Few Important Things to Note - Keeping our kids organized
Seesaw-Woohoo! 40 out of my 49 students have their families connected on Seesaw! That's awesome! If you have not had a chance to connect, or if you need another information sheet explaining how to connect, please email me. Seesaw will be a great way for you to get a window into your child's world at school and to stay connected!
Daily Assignments -
We have asked the students to find an organizational system that works for them so that they can write down the daily requirements for their classes each day. Our team suggested that students open a new Note in their "Notes" app and title it "Assignments". They should be able to update their daily assignments there. In humanities, we are trying to establish a routine where the first thing students do when they come in is update their daily assignments. I remind them each day at the start of class. Some students are choosing to use planners, and that is ok - whatever works for each student is fine. But, please monitor these for the first few weeks to make sure that your students are keeping themselves organized and aware of their assignments and when they are due. If you ever have any questions, please feel free to contact me. Thanks!
