  • Just a couple things...

    Posted by Richard Schultz on 4/28/2020 11:18:00 AM
    Happy Tuesday!
     
    Just a couple things I wanted to let you know:
     
    1. You will notice this week in the 'pronouns' assignment that you have options of how you would like to complete the assignment. You only need to complete ONE of the attached activities. The activity labeled 'pronouns' is an interactive 'google slide' that includes teaching videos. You can either complete the interactive activities or you can complete the worksheet.  If you choose to complete the worksheet you may do that by typing in your answers and using the google slide I have attached or you can print out the .pdf and upload a photo of the completed assignment. If you decide to use the printed .pdf, follow the directions in the margins of each page. 
     
    2. While I understand that our classwork has now gone digital, please do not forget the importance of continually practicing and using handwriting.  Remember, your student will be out of school for almost 5 months before returning in August.  If he/she doesn't hand-write anything in that time, much of what they have learned and practiced so far may be lost.  I'm not saying that everything must be handwritten, but just be aware that 'if you don't use it, you lose it.'
     
    3. I've only been assigning one comprehension assessment a week from our CKLA reader (now being Grace), however I urge you to continue to read the other stories within the book as well.  Your child should be reading 20 mins. per day, as set by the 'MCPS Distance Learning Handbook.'  Some of our future assignments may include understanding from the stories that weren't assessed on a comprehension assignment. It is not required that you read every story in the book, but I am encouraging to make your way through it.
     
    4. You may have noticed that I've added two additional 'material' postings at the top of the Google Classroom 'classwork' page. These are the 'narrative retell wheel' and the 'growth mindset videos.'  These are both great resources to use as a parent, and share with your student.  There are descriptions for both on your Google Classroom.
     
    I think that is all for now!  Thank you all for being so supportive and flexible during this 'new normal.'
     
    Have a great day!

  • Automatic Grades on Online Quizzes

    Posted by Richard Schultz on 4/21/2020 4:18:00 PM
    Just a heads up,
     
    When your child takes an online quiz (i.e 'Goods and Servies,' 'The Big Dig,' etc.) the system automatically gives them a grade and marks the 'long answer' questions incorrect.  Once complete I will go into the system, grade each question, adjust the grade, and then return it back to you.  Don't worry what the system says at first, just focus on the grades located in your Google Classroom.
     
    Hope this helps!

  • 'View Your Work' On Google Classroom

    Posted by Richard Schultz on 4/17/2020 12:35:00 PM
    I've been received a lot of questions regarding turning in work and getting work returned.  If you turn the same assignment in multiple times, I will have to return it to you multiple times.  Please look at the attached photos to see where you can find a list of your assignments on Google Classroom.  
     
    First, on the main classwork screen, you will click 'view your work.' Then, you will see a list of all of the assignments.  Some may say turned in, which means you have turned it in, but I haven't graded it yet; some will have a grade, which means it was turned in and I have graded it; and some will say 'assigned' which means you have not completed the assignment yet.
     
    For some reason, even though you have completed the comprehension questions, some of your assignments did not get turned in.  I went ahead and graded them, so you may see your grade listed with a note that says (not turned in).  Just ignore this message.  If there is a grade then I have seen it and graded it and it is fine.
     
    If you have any questions or are unsure about whether you have turned in an assignment please email me and I can help you look it up.

  • Weekly Assignments 4/13-19

    Posted by Richard Schultz on 4/13/2020 12:25:00 PM
    Below you will find the required assignments for this week, that are due on Sunday, April 19.  You can access all of the assignments on Google Classroom. 
     
     
    A couple things to start out the week:
     
    1. This work is meant to benefit your child(ren) and 'bridge the gap' since we will be away from school for a good amount of time.  If you are doing your child's work for them, it is not benefiting them.  I understand that they will need your help, but please remember that we need to keep them actively learning and engaged as much as possible.
     
    2. THANK YOU for being so understanding.  I'm still learning the online programs more and more each day, just like you are.  Also, I understand that not everyone has access to a printer, but many of you are finding other ways to complete the assignments.  I am flexible with how the assignments are completed, as long as they are completed and turned in.  If you have any questions about an alternative to printing, please email me and we can chat about ideas. Remember, even if you can't print it out, your child can simply just hand-write the answers on a piece of paper.
     
    3. I have tried again this week to create a 'google slide' that your child will be able to type their answers into, instead of printing the worksheet.  You MUST be signed into your child's school email address to access and edit the slide.  If you are signed into the correct email address you will have automatic editing abilities, you do not need to request access.  Fingers crossed it works this time! haha
     
    4. I will be sending out emails letting you know if there are assignments that your child has not turned in.  I want to make sure we all stay on top of this so we don't get too far behind.
     
    Have a great Monday!
