Homework at last…

Shalom,laptop reading

Now that we have practiced reading and recording on Classkick in class, we are ready to begin our homework. 

As mentioned during our Back to School Night, the homework this year will be on Classkick. The children recieved a “Machberet Kree-ah” where they have the QR code and the code for the required Classkick booklet. We will be using this “Machberet Kree-ah” in school as well, so make sure it returns to school daily. 

Adding to the reading I may record additional instructions on the classkick page itself. For example to find a specific word, highlight it and/or copy it into the Machberet Kreeah. This will be as an extra challenge for those who choose to do it.

The links, sounds and page numbers will also be provided here, on the blog,  on a weekly basis. 

This week we begin with only two pages (4 letters):

1A Classkick Code: UG8BGF        1B Classkick Code: DHMEMC

Monday and Tuesday: Page 4 (Tah & T)

Wednesday and Thursday: Page 5 (Sah & S)

I am reminding you that there is a recording of the page to help review it. In order to use it best, encourage your child to use a finger or a cursor to follow along as s/he listens and repeats the sounds and words. 

The children are encouraged to record themselves as they read daily; however, the requirement is to record the last two lines twice a week.

If your child does not record daily, I ask that you sign the page on the Classkick. Click on the T (Text) or use the pencil option. You bring it to the Signature line and type/sign with stylus or finger. Once homework is done (includes recording or signature), remind your child to press on the green hand to show me it is complete. 

Finally, I want to remind you, this should not take more than 5-10 minutes at the most. lets keep it fun and please let me know if it is taking too long. You can email me or leave a note on the page itself (recorded or written)

Toda,

Morah Ada. 🙂

Global Read Aloud

What is Global Read Aloud?

 

The premise is simple; we pick a book from the Picture Book Author Study (this year the author is Duncan Tonatiuh) to read aloud to our students during a set 6-week period and during that time we try to make global connections.  This year we have chosen to connect with just one school, Yavneh Academy in Paramus, New Jersey.  Our first book, Dear Primo, A Letter to My Cousin we zoomed with Yavneh Academy and shared how we compared our lives to that of one of the main characters, Carlitos.

 

We took the time to comment on their work that they posted on Seesaw and this week we are excited to see their comments on the legends we created as a class. We were inspired to write a legend after we read The Princess and the Warrior 

We talked about what a legend is and then attempted to create our very first class legend. Each class wrote their own legend, 1A wrote a legend on How The Elephant Got His Trunk and 1B wrote a legend How The Snail Got His Shell.

Please take the time to comment on our work as these comments will help us grow as a writer.

Reading Homework-February 1st-3rd

Your child’s reading assignment will be found on our Daily 5 Choice Board. They can read it online or print a copy.

To make things even easier, you can have your child go directly to the online Classkick reading log. The link and the code is also located on the Daily 5 board.  Please remember to sign it each time your child reads.

They can navigate Classkick like pros and make the page ready for your signature by typing in the name of their book and the date. All you need to do is sign it. Once I see the signature, I can then add a sticker to the log. 

Our first day back was awesome!

On The Fifth Day of Chanukah…

As the candles in your hanukiah burn bright, please take some time to listen to your child read their assigned book. I want to wish you all a wonderful Chanukah filled with love and laughter.

  • Remember to use the reading strategies as a tool when completing the reading homework.
  • Please sign the reading log (in their grey take-home folder) each night (this lets me know the homework was completed) and your child will receive a stamp or sticker the following day. Online students received a PDF of their book and they too will receive a sticker each time the log is filled out. It is posted on Classkick. At the end of this month, the students are required to record themselves reading 1 book from their assigned homework on Classkick.
