I truly hope you find time to enjoy our beautiful weather today. Our first live meetings will occur on Monday. All live meetings will occur via Microsoft teams. Each meeting will be recorded and posted in Canvas for future reference. Students were sent an invite to the meeting today. They need to have their math notebook, pencil or erasable pen.
12:30-1:15 AMPS class will meet (2nd & 5th period)
1:15-2:00 Math 6 classes with meet (3rd & 4th period)
Students may need assistance accessing Microsoft teams. This video will teach them. https://www.cabarrus.k12.nc.us/Page/78301
Before Monday’s meeting please have them complete the following. (Thank you to everyone that’s already completed this process)
- Log into Canvas
- Watch the welcome video
- Complete the Blendspace.com sign up (all code issues have been corrected)
Thank you for your continued support. You are amazing parents, raising world changing adults. I can’t wait to reconnect with them! See you Monday! I’m going for a walk! 😊
I hope that you are well. On Monday 3/30 we will begin supplemental instruction (optional) through digital learning. Wooohoo! This is an exciting and scary journey for me. Canvas will be the platform for all student work. I have updated each Canvas homepage. Students will click on Module to access their work. Each week I will release the work for the week on Monday. It is encouraged that students complete the assignments in order; but please have them work at your family’s pace within the 7 day period. The weekly schedule on the homepage reflects the district recommended work flow. The district expectation is for students to work 30-40 minutes per day per subject. I will adjust the work flow as needed.
Every Monday I will host a live lesson with students. Please have them participate. They should have their math notebook and pencil. They may use a new notebook if necessary. This live meeting will be recorded (district mandate) and posted in Canvas for students to review and access. I will send the meeting information by Sunday evening. We’re continuing to work through the process.
Tuesday thru Friday students will work independently on the posted assignments in Canvas. Two of the posted lessons will include a teaching video to support their assigned tasks. Every Tuesday and Thursday I will hold office hours for immediate response from 2-3 via email, text or call (980)458-4877. Please have students reach out to me with questions or concerns. Please reach out at anytime; I will respond.
Friday I will release the 5 question Olympic Review Check in Mastery Connect at 8:30. Please have them complete this without assistance or calculators. If a calculator is needed it will automatically appear in the assessment. The assessment results will be used in our competition against the other 6th grade classes. ALEKS homework will be released on Friday mornings at 8:30 am with unlimited chances to get 100%.
Today please have them log into Canvas, watch the welcome video and complete the Blendspace.com sign up. All code issues have been corrected. Very few friends have signed in so far. If needed call me for assistance.
I miss teaching and watching them grow and evolve. Digital learning will be a new way for all of us to grow and learn. Please be patient with me as technology and I have a love hate relationship. This often leads to humor for the kids, and now it’s recorded. 😊LOL!!!!
