Hello Mrs. Naughton's Nuggets, I miss you all so much! I have been missing your hugs, your beautiful smiles, and all of your stories! I am sending each of you a virtual hug right now!!!
To all my parents, I want to say thank you for your patience and help while we transition into the digital learning world. Thank you all for your support while I get our new learning platform up and working. I am here to support you and your child. Together we will make this work!
I will use Class DOJO for all of my communications. If you have any questions, frustrations, celebrations, I REALLY want to hear about it because I'm sure others will be sharing what you are dealing with. I want to help as many as I can without causing extra anxiety. Please check Class DOJO at least once a day.
Starting Monday, April 6th, I will be having two daily online ZOOM meetings. These meeting will be to check in with all of my children. The morning ZOOM meeting will be from 9:30 am to 10:00 am, the afternoon Zoom meeting with be from 1:30 pm to 2:00 pm. If needed I can create a private meeting time to try and reduce stress for everyone and to fit into your home schedule. Please don’t feel pressure for your child to attend all three Zoom meetings. Starting out, please try to have them attend at least one meeting a day. If any of the two times don’t work for you please let me know and we can do a one on one ZOOM meeting.
The night before each meeting, I will put the meeting invitations on Class DOJO in our Class Story section. When you are ready to join a ZOOM meeting, go to the correct ZOOM invitation, click on the link and follow the instructions on your screen.
Every Sunday night I will post the weekly lesson plan on my Home Learning Lesson Plan page. Monday, April 6th, our learning will be from ZOOM and my Kindergarten Homepage website. Our communications will be done through Class DOJO.
I am so proud of all of you. You all have become readers and mathematicians this year, which makes my heart warm and happy. Be safe, enjoy your family time, and always be your best you. I am so proud of you my wonderful little BlackHAWKS!
