Welcome to Digitial Learning!
Our first digital learning day is Wednesday, March 18, 2020!
I'm looking forward to our first digital learning day this week. I've included lots of important information here on this webpage. Please read the information carefully about procedures, expectations, ways to contact me, and ways to help your student. You can call me, email me, or text me to ask any questions that you may have. I can usually resolve all issues or questions right away.
Assignments will be posted on the page titled "Assignments"
Office Hours: 10:00am, 1:00pm, 3:30pm (phone calls, email, or text)
Students should complete work on the day it is assigned, so that they can watch the video lesson that goes with the assigned sheet.
All assigned work must be turned in upon returning to school for grading purposes.
Reading log should be completed each day after student reads (student should write in the date, parent should sign, student should write in the title of book read, or page numbers read, and then student should sign as well).
Choice boards will be offered for a variety of activities.

Prizes and rewards: Every student who completes each daily lesson will earn a Diamond Dollar for each day, and get to spend their Diamond Dollars at my personal Diamond Dollar Store. They can purchase things such as head phones, ear buds, snacks, drinks, toys, glow in the dark stickers, balls, jump ropes, stuffed animal friends, socks, hair bows, hair ties, tatoos (washable), nail polish, hot wheel cars, and much more!
Let me know in advance of your childs birthday, and I'll be happy to give them a shout out at the beginning of the day for many Happy Birthday Greetings!
For digital learning, your child should only need internet access, a computer or ipad, pencils, composition notebook, and the packet I sent home.
Please give your student lots of positive encouragement! Here are some examples that are great to use!
Giving a high five
Giving a hug
Giving a thumbs up
Clapping or cheering
Giving extra priviledges
Telling another adult how proud you are
1. How will my child get a grade? Work will be graded once it is turned in except for online work which is graded right away. For some work, you will be asked to take a picture of, and text it in.
2. What if my child doesn't understand the lesson or worksheet? There is a video lesson for every worksheet, and your student can watch it several times to better understand. If your child still has question, you can ask for further help by texting those questions to me.
3. Where can I get the lesson from? Each lesson will be video taped and loaded each day on my webpage, under dailly lessons. All lesson links will be attached to the daily lessons.
