    Hello families and students!  I will be using this page of my website to give updates while we are not at school. Until I know more, here is my action plan: Please read everyday! It is important to read things we enjoy, but we also need to read to make us think! If you want to read beyond a physical book, check out my 'Useful Links' for Reading sites to use.  It is important to practice the skills we have been working on this year! You can use the sites we use at school like Prodigy, Dreambox, or IXL. You can also look for practical math problems! Ask to help with cooking and practice measurement. Practice making change when purchasing items. Solve addition and subtract problems.  Write about your reading! Write about what you see! Write about how you feel! Write about things you wonder!  Check out iCivics through our Clever Website. SciShow for kids on Youtube is another great place to watch clips. Discovery Education can be accessed using their PWCS logins.  Check back here for more updates!

The Learning Choice Board will have optional learning activities for reading, writing, math, science/social studies. It will also have links to the Encore and Resource teachers’ web pages which will have suggested activities for your child as well.  These activities will be review of content that was taught this year in the classroom. We have provided you with enough options for your child to do something in every subject area Monday through Friday. However, this is meant to be a resource for families and is optional.   As it is an optional choice board, you can choose to do whatever suits the needs of your family. While the board will change each week, “Drop Everything and Read Everyday” will remain as we believe it is the most important learning opportunity for your child. During “Drop Everything and Read Everyday,” please have your child read independently for at least 15-30 minutes. The work from the choice board activities will not be collected or graded, but please feel free to share any pictures of your child enjoying their learning!

The pandemic will be something we share about with future generations. It would be extremely valuable to keep a journal over the course of our quarantine. The journal could be written, typed, in photographs, voice recorded, or video taped. Every day, I encourage you to share about your personal experiences. Students could interview families members to include in their journals. Create your own primary source of history!  I hope you enjoy this week of learning. Continue to use other apps and sites that I have recommended, but I also encourage you to try the activities described here. As always, reach out to me with any questions or concerns. I will be updating again soon, and most likely contacting again this week. I would like to start video meetings later this week or next, so I will let you know when. Thanks for stopping by!  Mrs. Rutledge :)
