Mr. Bee's Class
I provide support facilitation in regular kindergarten classrooms with Ms. Sawyer and Mrs. Barnard, and I also provide support facilitation with first-grade teachers, Ms. Stockel and Mrs. Weeman. During these classes, I team teach, providing remedial support, small group lessons and accommodations for all students.
I use the Remind App daily to answer questions and deliver suggested assignments. Please join me on Remind if you haven't already. I will make contact with you this week. Lessons will be recorded and posted in Google Classroom, Zoom( ,https://zoom.us/s/520229827, password: 913598) Class Dojo and Seesaw, by myself as well as your homeroom teachers, but you will need to participate and watch. I will support the homeroom teacher with these lessons live when available. I will be working with my co-teachers to help support your children as best I can via online/distance learning portals and options.
In order to support in the success of your student(s), please download the Remind app to your phone and type the code @agcgfa for Kindergarten and @4fbcab for First Grade be given access to updates, downloads, and texts from Mr. Bee. I will be attached to your teacher's Google Classroom, but will also have my own Classroom with supplemental material specific to your child's needs. My Google classroom code is 53aesri This app is free as well as one more way to serve your student. If you don't have an email address, I will be using your student's email as another way to communicate with your child.
Below you will find a link to a YouTube video to advise parents how to log on to Google Classroom and the teacher website. It was created by a teacher and para at Oakcrest. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q-G0cGth1LA&t=317s
As a Social-Emotional support, I will be making certain lessons available to parents and students. Your child will benefit from these educationally and developmentally appropriate, district approved lessons.
During our distance learning time, I will be holding office hours twice a day from 9-10 AM as well as from 12-1 PM. Feel free to email me at Nathan.firstname.lastname@example.org or message me on Remind.
