Good evening, 
I just wanted to follow up with all of you from earlier today. First of all, thank you for coming in to pick up your child’s work. I know things are so stressful right now but I wanted to give you some learning activities and lessons so your child can be actively engaged during this time.  
Today I sent home a packet with a Charlotte’s Web book that the students can read and respond to the packet. Also, there are some reading and math practice sheets to use to build certain skills. 
I’m asking if the students can start Topic 14 in their math workbook. I’ve started to assign the videos in their Google Classroom. They can watch them and complete the worksheet in their math workbook. I will also assign the on line test at the end of the unit. 
In addition, I’ve assigned lessons in Khan Academy to support Pearsonrealize and Topic 14.  Students can compete them. 
Please by tomorrow check out your Child’s IXL account for Reading and Math. I highlighted skills in yellow that would be helpful. The students who were in class today loved it! 
Lastly, I assigned several articles on Newsela. The students today loved reading the articles and answering the 4 questions. I’ll be reviewing this as well. To log on: go to Newsela: join using class code: 588VQE.  Hit sign in through Google- Hit allow and you should see the assignments/articles. 
Please let me know if you need any support with online activities or classwork. Please e-mail me with the best time to reach you and your phone number and I’ll be in touch. Together we got this!! Be safe and well! 
Truly, 
Ms. Kiszkan ❤️

Good evening, 
I wanted to reach out to all my families because I had several e-mails this weekend with concerns about sending the students to school on Monday. I completely understand the concerns and please feel free to do what you feel is best for your child. I will be putting together a packet tomorrow that the kids can work on over their time off. If you are able to pick it up near the end of the day if your child is out that would be great! This way they can get the packet and books they need to complete the work at home. 
Also, I am expecting the students to use Pearsonrealize on line with their math workbook. I will assign lessons on line- through their Google Classroom. 
I’m addition to that, I’m going to have the children read Charlotte’s Web and they will receive a packet to complete while reading the text. 
For on line support I’ve assigned Khan Academy that supports the math lessons from PearsonRealize. I assigned 15 lessons tonight so I can monitor their progress. As I see they completed and mastered the lessons, I will assign more. 
Also, in Google Classroom there are two articles the students can read and answer questions to. It’s from NEWSELA. I assigned them tonight as well. This is new for the kids so hopefully this will work out well. 
In addition, I will give you passcodes to IXL tomorrow for reading and math for extra practice. This would be better for reading as we don’t have many on line supports for reading. This is new too! 
As always the students love Prodigy for math and they can continue using that too. 
If you want to print extra worksheets in reading or math I love the site K5Learning. You can print a 3rd or 4th grade skill and you will get the worksheet and answer key. You can choose by skill and level. It’s super easy to use and a great resource. 
I’m sorry, I know this is a lot but I wanted to touch base with all of you and let you know the plan as on now. Please feel free to reach out and I hope everyone is safe and well.
I’ll be in touch more tomorrow. Thank you all again and talk soon, 
Ms. Kiszkan
