Daily Updates

  • Happy Thursday

    I was hoping distance learning would be temporary, but this is how you will learn for the rest of the school year. Please take it seriously.

     

    It was wonderful seeing so many of you yesterday!

     

    Upon hearing the announcement that we would be out of school for the rest of the year, I decided to have another Zoom lesson tomorrow at 1pm. I will give you the details either later today or tomorrow morning.

     

    Make sure that you get your USATestprep done.

     

    Send me pictures of your bookmarks by Wednesday, April 15th.

     

    Happy Hump Day!

    I’m enjoying using the Chat feature in Teams. Please feel free to use it to contact me, but keep in mind that I am most available from 8-4.

     

    For those of you with low grades on the Theme assignment, I re-assigned it to you and sent you an email.

     

    Your original, at-least-seven-word vocabulary sentences are due today.

     

    USATestprep is due this Friday. Feel free to finish it ahead of time. Your spring break starts as soon as you have all your school tasks done!

     

    Happy Tuesday, Y’all!

    We have being doing this for two weeks now. Can you believe it?

     

    Theme Assignment – Due today! Follow the instructions well. Make sure your answers are complete and use proper grammar, spelling, and punctuation. (Please make sure that you actually write a theme for your story. If you need a review, see the Theme PowerPoint in our Teams Files.)

    Hello, everyone!  

     

    I look forward to your communication, and I work diligently to respond to your emails as quickly as I can between the hours of 8-4. (After 4, you might have to wait until the next day for a reply.)

     

    I'm enjoying learning Office 365. Ms. Wittke, Ms. Arnold, Mr. Samaha learned how to video call each other. (Ms. Wittke's son and Mr. Samaha's daughter participated as well.) I'm also enjoying learning Forms since it is allowing you to get work done and turned in during our distance learning experience. Today I will be putting up the grammar quiz and a form to turn in your theme assignment. 

     

    Keep up with your work. If at anytime, you are confused about what is expected, email me. (We could even try video chatting, if you like!) 

     

    Wednesday, March 18th

    Hello, everyone! I hope you all are well.

     

    I am working with Microsoft Teams to find a way for you to turn your work in to me. I'm also working with "Forms" in order to have you take the poetry quiz, grammar test, and vocabulary test. 

     

    Continue to email me with questions. Even though I enjoyed my commute to work this morning (walking to my dinning room table), I am suddenly struck with the feeling of missing you all! I look forward to your communication.

     

    Tuesay, March 17th

    Happy St. Patrick's Day! I will be adding all of you to a Microsoft Team for my classes. (You are already doing this in other classes.) This enables you to turn assignments in to me. I will still put daily expectations on the class webpage. 

     

    Continue to email me with questions.

    This note is being sent home with my students.
