  • Our First Monday

    Posted by Karen Nick on 4/6/2020

    Hello and Happy Monday. By now you've probably received the weekly schedule for the Week of April 6-9 via email from Mr. Currier. 

    So that we don't always have to rely on your parents for information, you should have your Google Classroom set up for all three rotations. The code for these classrooms are on our websites. If you have any questions, you can talk to your teachers directly via Office Hours.

  • It's Friday!

    Posted by Karen Nick on 4/3/2020

    Hello fourth graders! Hopefully you have enjoyed this week and the strange new learning style we are all embracing. Over the weekend you should find a new schedule for the week of April 6-9 (Remember, the 10th was always going to be a Spring Break Day and we had it off!). To prepare for next week, your teachers asked you to sign up for Google Classroom by your homeroom. 

    Over the weekend, will you sign up for your rotations? Don't worry, all of this annoying signing up stuff is almost done. You'll be such a pro before the next week is over! 

    Visit your teachers' website to get the correct rotation code. Here are the classroom codes for math:

    First rotation: fl3dxgn

    Second rotation: h3tfvmg

    Third Rotation: lsrtptp

    Remember, you'll have to go to Ms. Yahner and Mr. Currier's website to find your ELA and S/SS codes. Once you've signed up for your three classes, going to Google Classroom should show you a total of four classes-one homeroom and three academic. 

    Please email me if you have any questions. Again, the email to use is the one you used to use EVERY DAY. You just might not be used to typing the second half, so here it is:


    Spelling is important, so make sure you didn't leave out a letter! I look forward to seeing you all "in class"!

  • Hump Daaaaaaay!!!!!

    Posted by Karen Nick on 4/1/2020

    By now my homeroom class should have received the email I sent and found their way to Google Classroom. Feel free to leave a message so I know you got there okay. Please contact me if you're having trouble. Remember, you already have a google account and probably didn't know it. It was that @learner.dvusd.org email you always used. 

    As your teachers get more experienced, you'll be asked to sign up for the same kind of classroom for all three of us. Don't worry, you'll do great! I hope that you are having fun with your casual Home Learning this week. If you don't know what I'm talking about, it can be found at https://www.dvusd.org/homelearning . 

    Make sure to check Ms. Yahner and Mr. Currier's websites as well. I can't wait to talk to you more in the coming week.

    Hello students!

    By now you should have received the news that school will be canceled for the rest of the year. Mr. Currier, Ms. Yahner, and I have been meeting with Mr. Anderson and Mr. Pletnick to discuss how to be fantastic teachers to you during the remaining weeks of school. We miss you!

    For this week, I want you to relax and follow the district's suggested schedule to the best of your ability. Don't worry-it's fun! It seems a little like playing "School" instead of going to the real school! The link for the schedule is found here: www.dvusd.org/homelearning . The recommendation is to do two hours of work this week and *a day beginning April 6. Two hours! Normally you have 6-7 at least!

    AFTER THIS WEEK, your teachers will jump in with fun activities and REVIEW to make sure you're keeping up your skills, having fun, and staying safe. This will also include OFFICE HOURS where students can chat with their teachers via Zoom, as well as the opportunity for one on one appointments as needed. We're still learning about this, so I'll keep you informed as we closer to the end of this week. Things can always change, so thank you for being flexible.

    The main way your teachers will communicate is through our website and email, so make sure you're checking them often. From there, we will include links to Google Classroom, which is going to be the main "record keeping" portion of At Home School, as well as links to our weekly schedule and resources you will need in order to complete work. You can always email your teachers and it doesn't just have to be about school stuff. I know this is a stressful time and your teachers miss you as much as you miss them!

    Remember, we can still make videos to talk with each other on Flipgrid at code: nick217. This is just for fun, requires your @learner.dvusd.org email, and you can let your siblings help you if you want.

    I miss you!

    Ms. Nick

  • New Flipgrid

    Posted by Karen Nick on 3/26/2020

    Today's Flipgrid comes to us from The Met. That is short for the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City. Make sure to pop over and leave a video, as well as viewing other students' videos. Remember, you log on by using your @learner.dvusd.org email.

  • Wednesday Check in

    Posted by Karen Nick on 3/25/2020

    By now you should have received a letter from the district explaining how things will work for the next few weeks. Mr. Anderson will follow up with a special Highland Lakes message soon, but until then, here are the key points for fourth graders:

    • This week is like a second Spring Break so go nuts (safely)!
    • The following week will not have "school" but there will be some activities, including Dreambox, that you can do to fill your time and not feel like your brain is gathering dust. I will continue to post Flipgrids so we can talk and see each other's awesome faces! 
    • The week after that, April 6, we will begin online school. I don't know exactly how that will go because your teachers will spend next week figuring it out! 
    • We will use Google Classroom to help us learn. 

    Those are the most important things for fourth graders to know right now. I am putting up a new Flipgrid called "Two Truths and a Lie" this morning so make sure to check it out, make your own, and comment on each other's by clicking the green bubble under the individual video. 

    Stay safe, stay healthy, and I'll talk to you more tomorrow. 

    Ms. Nick
