Welcome to my online classroom.
Students I miss you terribly and hope to see you real soon!
As you are aware our country is in a pandemic with the corona virus. We are all in unchartered waters. I have heard the following said more than once in the last few days- It’s like we're building an airplane that is already in the air flying. Even though school is closed we want you to keep learning.
I have transitioned my assignments into google classroom to make it easier for everyone to find.
Assignments can be found in google classroom. Codes to join my class: English 1 – j4jsrig
English 2 – hnvpfdv
English 3 – dvpf2af
With that in mind I have sent each of you your IXL passwords through your school email. I have assigned (recommended) lessons for all of you in all of my classes English 1, 2 and 3. IXL will work on a phone or computer. This is for the week of March 23-27.
English 1 and 2 for week of March 23-27 you need to be doing two Achieve 3000 lessons this week. If you need your usename or password contact me through email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
You should be working two hours a week on programs.
Week of March 30 – April 3 all classes will be working on lessons in Kahn academy.
Another suggestion keep a journal of what is going on in the world right now. This is a history making event.
8th Grade Professional Communication – As you watch the news and press conferences as this world situation goes on, watch the speeches of our elected leaders. These speeches are totally different from the motivational ones we have watched in class. These are very serious. Notice how the tone changes as this keeps getting more serious.
Week of April 6-10 This is the same for English 1, 2 and 3 Friday, April 10th is Good Friday which was already a school holiday. I have added the following IXL lessons to the ones that were already assigned - I added Z1, Z2, and Z3. Some of you have not done the IXL lessons that were assigned the week of March 23. You need to finish those lessons first and then do this weeks! You do not have to do any Acheive 3000 this week catch up on IXL.
Week of April 13-17 This is the same for English 1, 2 and 3 Monday, April 13th is a school holiday. The rest of the week is a catch up week for any IXL lessons and Kahn academy lessons you have not finished.
Week of April 20-24 This is the same for Engish 1, 2, and 3 You have an assignment in Google classroom that will take you to commonlit.org where you will read and answer questions of the story of “Rikki Tiki Tavi”. The scores will transfer from commonlit to google classroom at the due date.
