You are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem and smarter than you think.
I am here whenever you need me. I hope that all my students are having authentic learning experiences through the assignments on this website. If you find that your child is not enjoying or gaining any real learning experience from an assignment, choose one from which he or she will. I have purposely given many learning opportunities to give many options for a fun, worthwhile learning experience.
Hello! Welcome to my Online Instruction Website! With this use of this website, students, with the support of parents, should complete all of the listed assignments on each of their teacher’s websites, weekly. My 4 weekly assignments are listed below. I have also included some supplementary Grammar assignments, which review a new grammar skill every week. I have included helpful videos, games, PowerPoints, and videos to make this online instruction and learning process as smooth as possible.
Remember, these assignments are suggestions and are not mandatory. If you feel like your child is swamped with work, just pick the assignments you find to be valuable.
As a teacher, I always strive to ensure that my students are having authentic learning experiences. Although this format we have been using has been challenging, I still plan to do my best to achieve this. I will be making videos reviewing the material all my students will see because I think it is important for them to hear my voice. Although these activities are not mandatory and it will not be graded, I encourage you to still make an attempt to practice and show me your work. Since I cannot be in the classroom to see you work, I would love to see what you’re doing!
I hope you all have fun! When you are done, read a good book or write in your journal if you'd like. Don’t forget to dance on GoNoodle! Remember, learning can be fun!
