K-5 Educational Materials

 

Dear Families, 

Below you will find an overview of the supplemental materials and resources that were provided to your child, picked up by you, or emailed home by the teacher. This is meant to serve as an overview, you probably received more information from the teacher. Please pace yourself with the work that has been sent/emailed home. We are asking that you help your student(s) with quality over quantity. We are sending home information about supplements, but there's so much more to the school day. Please remember that you can provide many more opportunities, challenges, and discussions to your child that are beyond what is found in the paper/pencil and electronic resources. 

We will also be creating a “resource webpage” on the school website for electronic resources that are used in classrooms. We hope to have this ready by the end of the week. There are also many resources out there for all subjects if you just put in a quick search for whatever you may be trying to find. 

If your class engages in Accelerated Reader, you can have your child take AR tests from home. The web address is: https://global-zone51.renaissance-go.com/welcomeportal/298121. They should know their log-in and password information. 

Some teachers sent home writing work for students and some did not. It would be great to set a timer for 5-10 min for journaling each day to continue the habit and skill of writing and reflecting. 

Parent/teacher conferences will be conducted via phone call this year. Your child’s teacher will be reaching out to you to schedule a conference. If you do not hear from your child’s teacher and would like to conference, please send them an email. If you do not have email access, please call the school and we will get a hold of your child’s teacher. 

Please return all the materials and work to school when we resume on April 27th. 

Sincerely, 

Crystal Lanz

 

Kindergarten (Wroe)

Reading

  • I have enclosed the next two reading units we would have done in class.  We do the reading units 3 days a week and do other independent reading or Weekly Reader on the other days.  For the reading units, we do one page of the unit magazine each day and then read 2 stories from the story book.  In the story book, students read the bold or underlined words; older readers read the rest. Some groups have started to read the “parent” parts with some help.  If your child would like to read these parts, feel free to encourage them to do so.

Language Arts

  • I have enclosed some individualized letter practice sheets for the students.  The students have worked on these before and may just need help with directions.  I have also included worksheets on digraphs (th,sh,ch,wh). We have looked at digraphs in our daily letter practice, but we were just going to start the unit on them.  In addition, I have included several sight word books.

Writing

  • The students made writing journals to take home.  We generally do short writing every day. Please encourage students to work on writing complete sentences including capitals, spaces, and punctuation marks.  We were just about to start on writing good questions and answers and practicing writing the question mark. Please practice writing and answering questions.

Math

  • I have included the next two math units on telling time and 2-D and 3-D shapes.  For time, I encourage you to have your child practice with digital and analog clocks to tell time to the hour (or beyond if they are ready) as well as reading a calendar.  For shapes, have the student look around the house and outside to find shapes in nature.

Dear Families, 

Below you will find an overview of the supplemental materials and resources that were provided to your child, picked up by you, or emailed home by the teacher. This is meant to serve as an overview, you probably received more information from the individual teacher. Please pace yourself with the work that has been sent/emailed home.

Social Studies

10th Grade US History I (Waller)

  • Before Spring Break students will finish filling out notes on Mexican-American War, watch a documentary on it, and take an open-note quiz over it. All of the information on that will be on Google Classroom
  • After break, students will read parts of 4 chapters (chapters 6-9) in their new government textbooks, watch several corresponding youtube videos, and will do assignments based on those chapters and videos. Specifics on this will be on Google Classroom by the end of this week.
  • I will also most likely post some supplemental videos/materials for students to have the option to do

11th/12th Grades US History II  (Waller)

  • Students have a paper due March 20th on How Government Should Help the Poor
  • Students will need to read Chapters 26 and 27 in their textbooks and answer the questions that I assign on Google Classroom
  • I will post a list of WWII movies and documentaries for students to pick from, and they will need to watch 2 movies in specific categories or 4 hours worth of documentaries and write summaries/historical observations per the instructions given on Google Classroom
  • I will also most likely post some supplemental vidoes/materials for students to have the option to do

Senior Projects

12th Grade Senior Projects (Elyard)

  • Students are strongly encouraged to complete any aspect of their Senior Project if possible.
  • Students are encouraged to continue to work on scholarship applications.
  • In the interim, the seniors are to keep a daily journal as per the requirements explained in class.  Look on Google Classroom regularly for prompts and updates.

PACE

9th Grade PACE

  • Check Google Classroom for detailed instructions. 
  • Make contacts for your letters of recommendation, job shadow, community service and guest speaker. 
  • Create a photography portfolio.

Home & Family 

Home and Family (Fogarty)

  • Have a textbook. Check Google Classroom for assignments
  •  We will be covering topics that I find important. I encourage you to have conversations at home about the content as we will not be having class discussions. We will start with Alcohol, Drugs and Tobacco, then Infectious Disease, and Personal Finance/Budgeting. 
  • Additionally, I would like every student to try to accomplish one DIY skill project. Generally in class we would do sewing, and students would learn basic hand stitches as well as try their hand at the machines. I inquired today about access to machines/supplies and several students raised hands. I know not everyone has the same access, therefore I am expanding the project.  Essentially, I want all students to have a DIY skill under their belt. The point is to make something useful and well crafted. This could range from sewing, to knitting, to woodworking, and more. I am open to hearing the students' interests and suggestions. A more formal proposal will come via Classroom.

Arts

9th-12th Grade Art (Fogarty) 

  • Students need the sketchbook made in class on our last day or at least 15 sheets of quality drawing paper.
  • Students should be checking Google Classroom weekly.  I have already posted the first of 5 weekly sketchbook assignments. Each one will have prompts for three projects/drawings. Students can use any media they want. The easiest is a pencil drawing, though if you have access to other art supplies, anything goes. Projects should be in the sketchbooks we made today, unless they are using other materials, in which case, they should bring in that work at the end of our time too. If it is something that is too big or awkward to bring, they could photograph it. If they choose to make a photo for one of the projects, they should get it printed if possible.

Electives

Spanish I (Zalaznik)

  • Students should continue daily language practice by watching the videos and completing nuggets on https://www.senorwooly.com/, watching the series Go! Vive a tu manera (on Netflix) and writing summaries in Spanish, and utilizing the additional resources posted on google classroom: https://classroom.google.com/

Spanish III (Zalaznik)

  • Students should continue daily language practice reading the novel provided to them from the classroom (or finding another novel in Spanish via the Overdrive app available through Fort Vancouver Regional Library), watching the series Gran Hotel (on Netflix) and writing summaries in Spanish, keeping a Spanish journal during the closure, and reading news articles in Spanish using the resources posted on google classroom (https://classroom.google.com/ ).  

Publications (Anderson)

  • Check Google Classroom for detailed instructions. 
  • Write an article for the Spring Laker

Creative Writing (Fink)

  • Students were given (or will be sent) a packet that contained a list of instructions, a log for students to track their time spent working so they can earn participation points, and all the necessary graphic organizers to help them write a rough draft of a children’s book/story.
  • Students are required to complete 3 outside writing assignments. The due dates for these assignments were given to students in January. They can submit them electronically or when we return to school.
  • Students are encouraged to brainstorm, plan, and write/illustrate a rough draft of a children’s book/story; however, anything not completed will not be held against the student. Those students will be able to work on this project more when we return to school, but they may need to complete part of it as homework. If you complete the rough draft over the break, the rest of the work should be able to be completed during class time.

Weightlifting, 9-12th Grades (Waller)

  • Students need to record 4 workouts per school week that we are out on a tracking sheet that I posted on Google Classroom.  They can use their own plans that they can adjust to bodyweight workouts or they can do workouts that I post on the Google Classroom

Sports Medicine II, 9-12th Grades (Waller)

  • Students will be given an injury to do a “case study” on where they have to write a report on a made-up injury of a person from before they were injured till they get back to play.  They will have sections on how the injury occured, how to diagnose the injury, surgery options, rehab, sport-specific rehab, and return to play. There will be 3 progress due dates on Google Classroom for them to work towards and I will give them feedback if they get their work in by those progress due dates. 

9th-12th Grade Band (Coleman)

  • Make sure your band instruments are at home.
  • Students all have sheet music that we have been preparing for our Spring Concert. While many scheduling constraints and changes have made putting on a concert more challenging, I believe that our students are well-enough prepared that we can expect a successful concert. Please help your children remember to practice that music.
  • Throughout our closure, I will continue to send home resources students can use to learn more about music and continue making new music.

Online

APEX Online (Smith)

  • Please continue to work on your online classes while you're at home if you can.  It's not mandatory, and you won't be penalized on your next grade, but it's in your best interest to keep up with the work. To receive credit for this course it must be completed by the end of the school year, so I'd hate to see you come back in April to a mountain of assignments.
  • Continue to email me your assignments and any questions or requests you may have.

Senior Graduation Requirements
