Ms. Hahn’s Newsletter August 23, 2020

 

Thank you

 

I want to thank you for making the past week so successful. I know this is not how any of us would want this year to start out. I truly appreciate your support getting the year off to a great start.

 

Google

 

Our class will be using Google Classroom for assignments. Please have your child open Google Classroom every morning. At this time, I am not requiring students to upload pictures onto Google Classroom. I will work with them during synchronous learning to teach them how to use the camera on their computers and add pictures to Google Classroom assignments. During our breaks we will now be utilizing the stream to tell the students what to do during breaks and when to be back from break. See the image below.

 

Reading

 

This week I read the students a few different books and they wrote about their favorite part. On Friday I reviewed Read to Self. Next week we will discuss work on writing and reading to a partner. I am hoping to use breakout rooms in Zoom to have the students read to each other.

 

Writing

 

This past week I read a variety of books to show writing has meaning to the author and the reader. The students started a jot page with different ideas to write about during class. Next week the students will have more time to write about a topic of their choice. We will also talk about how writers include sensory details in their writing.

 

Math

 

This week the students tried out a few technology activities with a Google slides math scavenger hunt. On Friday we began Unit 1 in 3rd grade math. Unit 1 is a review of addition and subtraction. I will attach the math newsletter from Bridges. Some of the activities mentioned in the letter may be slightly different due to remote learning. Next week we will continue Unit 1 lessons about addition.

 

Science 

 

We started learning about the prairie. Mrs. Steinbeck was on location at the prairie to show different plants in the prairie. She also did an insect sweep. Next week we will continue learning more about prairie animals and prairie plants.

 

Attendance

 

Please have your child log into my class Zoom by 8 am for attendance. On Tuesday after I see them, they may go to PE Zoom class. 

 

Computers

 

If your child needs a Chromebook, please let the office know. The school can issue you a Chromebook for remote learning. Many of the 3rd grade activities may be difficult to do on an IPAD. Some families who already had a tablet or IPAD use that for Zoom and the school 

Chromebook for assignments.
