Kindergarten Remote Learning

Reed-Custer Elementary School

Week 6 (May 18th - May 22nd)

Overview

Our first concern is the well being of the kindergarten students. If you need anything please always reach out to your student's teacher via email or contact Mrs. Faletti.


Assignments for the whole week will be posted via a weekly newsletter (like this one) by Monday at 8:30 AM. You will get a unique newsletter link weekly. You can also find the link on the District Website under Remote Learning for Kindergarten. Assignments are due every Friday.


Classes will meet at 9am every Monday and Friday. Your teacher will take attendance during these meetings. You will receive a zoom link specific for your class from your teacher before each meeting. Click on the link to join the Zoom meeting. Downloading the Zoom app on your device will make this easy. You can also do it on your computer.

Assignments

You will have six assignments to complete during each week. Three reading and three math. These are found below with assignment descriptions and related links to support you. If you need further support please reach out to your classroom teacher.


Three of those assignments will be turned in by recording a 1 minute video of you explaining and showing your work in FlipGrid. You will know you need to turn it in because you will find a "Turn in Assignment Here" button underneath the description. All you need to do is click on the button to submit it whenever you are ready between Monday and Friday. It will ask for an ID which is your first name and your teacher's first initial (all lowercase). Each assignment turned in will be reviewed and feedback will be provided either as a comment or a video. You will receive your feedback through a link sent to you by the teacher.


For example, you submit your three assignments (let's say maybe one on Tuesday and two on Thursday perhaps) and your teacher will provide feedback by sending you a separate link for each assignment you submitted (lets say they email you on Friday perhaps with the three links. You will then click on each link to see your feedback for the assignment you submitted).


You do not need a FlipGrid account to submit your assignment but if you download the app on your phone it makes it easier. You can also record and submit via your computer as well.
