Welcome to Mrs. Whitten-Lavery's 4th Grade Class
Home of Champions!
Important information regarding Distance Learning:
I hope all of you are safe and in good health. I want to thank you in advance for your patience and cooperation as we embark on this new adventure together. We will begin Distance Learning April 1st. I will be using Class Dojo as the primary means of communication. You can contact me through Dojo from 8:00 a.m.- 2:00 p.m. I will schedule meetings, conferences, and tutorials during my office hours, which are from 8:00 a.m.-9:00 a.m and 1:00 p.m.-2:00 p.m. If you contact me outside of those hours I will get back to you as soon as possible (within 24 hours). Parents please have your child go to this free website,
www.commonlit.org/en/enroll, and sign-in using this code GE73K8. I will be using this website for ELA. Everything else can be accessed from your child's desktop portal. I will send out my lessons, through Dojo, for the week. Since this is a short week students will have only 1 task to complete for each subject. Starting next week, students will have 3 ELA tasks, 3 Math tasks, 1 Science task, and 1 Social Studies task to complete. In addition, students should complete 45 minutes for both i-Ready Reading and Math. Please make sure that students are taking their time and passing lessons. I will be monitoring their usage. Also, students should read 20 minutes daily. This can be through Myon or other books. My family is currently reading The Adventures of Tom Sawyer. Students will receive Special Area instruction. Here's the schedule:
Communication is going to be key in getting us through these unusual times. I will do my best to be as transparent and timely at disseminating information as possible. If you have any questions or concerns please don't hesitate to contact me. I'm here for you and your children.
