Weekly Update, May 4, 2020

Good Afternoon, 2B Families,

Happy May!  I hope you are looking forward to a sunny week ahead.  It was so much fun doing a guided art project with the students on Zoom for May Day last Friday, the flowers turned out beautifully!  I am missing the students dearly and know they are missing each other!  Thank you for supporting your student in attending our class meetings! 😊

A few tidbits:

Assessments: We will have three assessments this week (Math, Science, and Religion).  Please make sure that your child completes this work independently so I can gauge progress.  You may read the instructions, sentences, and story problems as a support.  If your student is needing a great deal of extra support, please let me know.  I typically read through the assessments in class, so the students are used to this.

Reading Groups: This week I am going to give reading groups a try with my classroom reading groups.  The stories for our reading groups will be assigned through Epic!  I plan to share the Zoom link within our Google Classroom.  Mrs. Latta’s group will continue to follow Mrs. Latta’s instructions for reading and what is assigned in Epic!  Stay tuned for more information about reading groups! 😊

Class Picture: We are collecting pictures of each student for our class picture, since we were unable to get ours this spring.  Mrs. Buenvenida (Marianna’s mom) will be collecting and putting the pictures together in a Brady Bunch/Zoom-like fashion.  If you would please send her a picture of your child, from the shoulders up (if possible), that would be great!  Pictures can be sent to the email address annaRmarcB@gmail.com.  Thank you for helping make this possible!

2B Zoom Meeting Friday, 5/8:

Topic: The Important Thing (*Please have your child come prepared with a white piece of paper, coloring utensils, and a pencil!)

Time: May 8, 2020 10:00 AM, please see your email for the link and password.

Please contact me with any questions or concerns you may have.  I am here to support your child in this time of unique learning!

Warm regards,

Addison Borseth
