3/16/2020 - MS. GODFREY'S CLASS
I have attached some social stories to help students understant COVID 19, at different reading levels. If children are not ready for reading sentences, parents can read the stories to them and discuss pictures. I also attached a schedule resorce. Below are some free resources for parents:

These resources were designed and shared specifically by SPED teachers for SPED students, but would be relevant for a lot of our K-2/3 students too and can be adapted-unfortunatly, some need to be printed.

Grocery Store budgeting (money)
3/20/2020 - DR. WRIGHT'S CLASS - Daily Lessons:
Go to: https:/./zoom.us/.meetings
*Look at the top of the webpage for the words "Join a Meeting" and click "Join a Meeting" Meeting ID: 304-689-924 Meeting Password: 509297. Dr. Wright will be delivering lessons Monday - Friday during the following time frames.
A site that would help parents at home with math homework is Khan Academy. I assign students practice work on the topics we are working on during each unit and parents can search for the topics and watch videos that demonstrate how to solve problems and provide strategies. I also use the same to help students in grade 6 when they come to see me for tutoring so I am confident parents could use this to support their students if they know the math topic their child is working on.
Parents can set up an account with ReadWorks (readworks.org) and choose reading material based on topic and reading level (grade level). If parents encourage their child to read these selections and they have questions that they could do with their child, helping them build their reading comprehension and understand how to find answers in a passage.
6th Grade - Ms. Bryant's Classes
Here are two great websites for review about the cell unit we covered in class.

Hmhco.com/ed It’s the HMH Intro to Literature. Parents are invited to join Ms. Green on Class Dojo through their phones/website and she can help them.
Ms. Green's Students - my students need to complete the work in HMH for 7th and 8th grades, 7th-units 1,2,3, and 8th grade Unit 1,2,3, and Anne Frank we read this book last year should be reinforcement for 8th graders. These units were taught and you need to complete the computer, workbook, essays and journal work. We are learning about Auschwitz x in SS. Some students are behind. This is all past work, even Anne Frank. you have been doing all analyze, vocabulary, citing and essays, This should be good practice and summative assessment for the 8th graders.
