Mrs. Richter's Class
The weather is starting to get nice out, except for the rain. I have placed lessons for the week of April 13th on Schoology. The Math lessons are by days to make it easier for everyone. I hope you were all able to get some research done on your debate topic. If not you can always email me and we can research together.
Did anyone get outside to look for rocks? How about looking at the moon?
I am hoping to talk to everyone this week. I think I have the video fixed. We will see.
Have a nice holiday. Enjoy your family.
Students should be writing everyday in their memoir book. They should write how they feel and what is happening in their lives.
I have emailed the students their group time for Reading and Math. It will be the sametime every day. I have posted on Schoology worksheeets that I will be doing with them tomorrow. If you can print them out that would be helpful.
Check Schoology for assignments in each of the courses.
I will be available on Microsoft Team Between the hours of 10 and 12 everyday if you need help or just want to chat.
You can access Legends of Learning

I hope you are all doing well spending family time together. It is a dificult time and we will be exploring the internet and online learning together.
On the last day of school I sent home work in a plastic baggy with a pen, pencil and paper for you to use. The Spring Math booklet should take you a few days to complete. It is full of concepts that we have learned along with some we will learn later. I also included some reading materials and a Scholastic News for you to read. There is also some spring writing for you to choose and do daily. The whole packet should take you at least 5 days to complete.
I will be setting up work for you on Schoology. We have used this website in class. The children have also used the Moby Max website and Prodigy website. These are 2 website great for Math lessons.
You will be able to email me at any time with questions or concerns. My email address is firstname.lastname@example.org. Please feel free to contact me anytime.
I am trying to get information on the website and schoology to help get us through this tough time. I hope you have heard that there will be no state tests this year. So everyone can relax.
Remember, this is new territory for both of us and we will get through it successfully together.
I will be posting work that students can do at home. Check for the assigned homework.
