I’m Back!

I’m Back!

I am officially back from maternity leave! I am so ecstatic about seeing all your children’s smiling faces on the Zoom screen! 

ZOOM 

We will have the following class Zoom meetings weekly: 

  • Mondays at 11 am: Mystery Mondays 
    • This is just something for fun- it could be a game, a mystery reader, craft, movement activity, or a visitor from LAMPS. I will give a clue each Thursday prior for your child to guess what the activity will be!   
  • Tuesdays at 11 am 
    • I may introduce a new reading or math skill, review the choice board options, have students share projects they have been working on, read aloud, etc. 
  • Thursdays at 1 pm 
    • I may introduce a new reading or math skill, review the choice board options, have students share projects they have been working on, read aloud, etc. 

 

Learning Activities 

Henrico EDFLIX Choice Board: Students should complete at least 1 choice board activity from each content area per week. https://docs.google.com/presentation/d/1m6wpBDvS_LzWyNGvMpvkWOdr3bDdmlSOqdHoWZUjRsg/edit#slide=id.g73afc1876e_0_789

Performance Task: This should be completed by the end of each 2-week episode. This performance task will be “due” by May 8. https://docs.google.com/document/d/1iwwUvoWXnLvOa1IVZLQ_Bzw7xBVOD4_hPZctNEfSP8U/edit 

 

Sharing Work 

There are many ways to share work with me. I do not expect you to share every activity you complete! 

  • Take a photo/video and email it to me 
  • Complete your activity in Google Docs or Google Slides and share it with me at accover@henrico.k12.va.us
  • Post a video in Flipgrid (available through Clever) using the link: https://flipgrid.com/coverdistancelearn under “Season 2 Episode 2”. 

 

Strategies for Success with Virtual Learning 

  • Create a weekly schedule. Designate a time each day to read, a time to work on EDFLIX, and a time to practice math facts each day.
  • Add Zoom Meeting times to your Google Calendars. Set it to alert 30 minutes before to avoid missed meetings! Have the Zoom link bookmarked on your computer. 
  • Designate a quiet workspace in your home away from distractions to complete your EDFLIX activities.

Reflex Math

Reflex Math

Don’t forget that Reflex Math is a great online resource for your child to practice their math facts! Once students reach 85% accuracy on their addition and subtraction facts, they will be bumped to multiplication and division. The kids enjoy it, and it is something they can do from home! Login through www.reflexmath.com and the class username is acover.
