Lower Elementary

Per the district’s request, we have to document work completed and attendance. To make this easy on all families, the Lower Elementary team decided that each family, once per day, will take a picture of their child, doing one of the works listed above, and send that picture to their teacher. The time frame  allowed for this is 9:00am-9:00pm. 

Teachers will be available each day, via email, to answer your questions. Scheduled work hours are 9:00-11:30 am, and 1:30-3:00pm. Please know that I will get to you as quickly as I can. We are all learning together.


- Please do your best work
- Enjoy the activities
- Reach out through email or if you can access the Google Hangout if you have questions
- Take your time, you have all day!!


- Help your child get set up to do their work
- Help your child upload assignments so they can be sent directly to me
- Reach out if you have questions or concerns
- Have everything sent by 9 pm this evening

Here is an example of a Daily Work Plan that you will receive via email to share with your child starting tomorrow-

Daily Writing Prompt: Your child will be given a prompt to write about each day.

Reading:  Your child needs to read for 45+ minutes each day. They will be given question(s) to answer, depending on their grade/ability.

Practical Life: The importance of helping out around the house is greater this week than ever. Your child will be asked to do several practical life activities each day.

Math:  Besides practicing math facts (First and Second Years are all working on addition, Third Years are working on multiplication), a daily math activity will be sent.

Science/Cultural:  We are continuing to learn about South America, botany-seeds, mammals/human body, and energy/light/sound using the scientific process. Several assignments will be given around our curriculum.

Other Ideas: These are other ideas/resources for you to use:

Scholastic Learn From Home: It is easy to create an account for your child. Just click on their reading level and you will find a place to make an account. It has 20 days of reading and writing activities. Each day is centered around a theme.

Google Docs/Google Slides:  Most of your children are able to sign in to their Google accounts and access Docs and Slides. If your child has access to technology and can remember their account information, they can share with me their work directly. Due to confidentiality,
I am not allowed to know your children’s Google information. But if this helps, your child’s username is their student id number, and then each child has created their own password. This is a way that would allow me to keep in contact with
the children more directly.

Daily Journal entry: Students can write about anything they want.
