I hope that you are all doing well, staying healthy and keeping a positive attitude. Although this is a very tough time, we are going to become stronger because of it and will get through this together. The learning will continue on and we will still be able to interact.
Check out the links on the far left side of this page to find all of the assignments for this week as well as the previous weeks. You can print the week's schedule out if it helps you stay organized. Each Friday around 9am, I will update that to show the next week's work. As always, it's important to keep up with your assignments and to watch those due dates. Please try your best to go along with each day's schedule and don't wait until the end of the week to submit everything.
Assessments will be taken from Edmodo written assignments, quizzes and discussions (quality participation), i-Ready, CommonLit and SCOPE assignments. If something important happens and you are unable to get on Edmodo or Zoom for a discussion at your assigned time, email me and I will set up another time for you to discuss. Approximately once a week, we will meet using Zoom as an "office hours" type tool for students who have questions about the weekly assignments. Here is a tutorial on how to use the technology: Zoom Tutorial
Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns. I am here for you!
Try to have a good attitude and stay healthy. I can't wait to see you when we come back.
:) Mrs. Dennis
