Information on Instruction:
Goals: Lessons are alligned with grade level standards.
Expectations: It is the expectation that students try to complete lessons on their own, and parents assist when student needs more help. All lessons are geared towards grade level criteria and the standards.
Parent engagement: Parents may help by listening to student reading, reviewing math and/or language arts work for student understanding, and offering additional tutoring.
Communication support: Please contact me with any issues, and I'm sure I can help with any problems or issues in a matter of minutes. If I don't know the answer to something, I will find assistance to help as soon as possible.
Establishing routines: Please encourage your student to get into a routine and engage in Canvas learning every day. Thank you for all your help and encouragement!
Prizes and rewards: Hugs, words of praise, high fives, and saying "great job!" goes a long way in encouraging students to do their best! Please engage in positive encouragement for your student every day!
Let me know in advance of your child's birthday, and I'll be happy to give them a shout out at the beginning of the day for Happy Birthday Greetings!
If you move or change your contact numbers, please send me a message with new address and/or new phone numbers so that we may stay in touch regarding your child's education.
Please have your child read grade level books out loud for 20 minutes each night, and let them sound out words they don't know. Then have them retell what they read for 5 minutes (about 100 words or more). This helps tremendously with fluency and comprehension skills.
Please review any assignments on Canvas and verify that your student has submitted the work, so that they can get the proper credit for doing the work.
Germx-Clean hands often, at least once every hour or more if circumstances demand it(due to touching multiple surfaces).
Mask-Your child needs several mask for being out and around others. Have your child practice wearing and putting on the mask by themselves. Practice wearing the mask correctly over mouth and nose. Use a new mask each day, and have two -three masks with you at all times in case one falls on the floor. Safety for your child is the number one priority.
Pencils-two packs #2, yellow
Hand pencil sharpener
Loose leaf paperx2
Eraser-pink not pencil tops
Please give your student lots of positive encouragement! Here are some examples that are great to use!

Telling another adult how proud you are
1. How will my child get a grade? Work will be graded once it is turned in and grades will be posted online. For some work, you may be asked to take a picture of, and text it in.
2. What if my child doesn't understand the lesson or worksheet? Lessons will be reviewed after initial introduction over several das, so that students will have time to gain understanding. If your child still has questions, you can ask for further help by texting those questions to me.
3. How can I get help? Contact me with any problems and I will assist you in every way that I can to resolve any problems.
