We are on Google Classroom! Please look out for the email from your teacher and be sure to sign up for my class using the class code! Can't wait to see you all soon!
Happy and sunny Thursday to you all! Please remember, all teachers are connecting with students through email. ClassDojo or some form, so if you haven't been in touch with your teachers, send me a message using the form and I will be sure to help you get set up! The assignments for this week have all been posted, and you can see them below. The work for this week was posted under the 3/23 date and I have been adding supplemental activities, that are disconnected from the computer. I am also adding digital literacy lessons to support your use of tech devices at home!
I will continue posting assignments on here until Google Classroom is working for us all! In the meantime, when you are finished with your packet or pages below, complete the bingo board below by completing all of the activities in a row or a column, or complete the entire board! You can also complete the neighborhood walk animals and plants observations (WITH SUPERVISION)
Here's some digital literacy tips for today:
Collaboration Video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_continue=2&v=1CnTeFoffkA&feature=emb_logo
Collaboration involves everyone and we must be respectful of everyone’s ideas when we work together. Some ideas for handling your technology:
● Have clean/dry hands when using
● Keep it in a safe place; do not leave on the floor
● Carry with two hands
● Put it in its space and on the charger at the end of each day
● Stay in the app your teacher wants you working in
Don't forget to send me pictures with a description of the activities and what you have completed! And check back often for updates!
Happy Wednesday! Managing Stress Video
For all assignments that are posted here, please be sure to take pictures and submit in the form on this page. Please include your child's name and class, and I will be able to give them credit for work submitted! You can also upload them in ClassDojo if your class has been added there! Remember, this is all until google classroom is up and running- hopefully soon! I uploaded my "Signs of Spring" video above, with supervision AND social distancing, take a walk and look for signs of spring! You can take pictures, make drawings or even complete a tally chart of the trees and animals that you see on your walk! Pages found below to help guide you! Remember to use the form submission for any questions, comments or concerns! I am here to help transition during this time!
Stay healthy and well! Ms Kerri
Now that you are becoming more familiar with how to navigate online, here is some digital literacy help:
Functional meaning: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IeWUq1UU-Is&feature=emb_logo
● Just because we know how to use devices, phones, and laptops does not mean we are technology experts.
● Making videos and taking pictures that tell a story and have meaning, require more knowledge than simply knowing how to touch the button to take the picture or record a video.
● Interacting with others on websites and social media require more from us than just knowing how to type and spell words.
● We must be thoughtful about using technology and ask ourselves if it is meaningful and necessary.
Technology and devices are: Technology and devices are NOT:
● Tools we use to learn, create, ● The only tools for learning, creating, and working together and working together
● A bridge to the Internet ● The only tools for completing assignments
