Pandemic Leave Information

We all have a lot of questions, but let’s stick with what we do know. As of this post, the district will be closed to students until April 3. This leaves me in a unique situation, as many of you know. Please review the video below where I explain the situation as of this posting. I will edit this post as things change.

Behavioral Scientist Steve Maraboli once said, “Incredible change happens in your life when you decide to take control of what you do have power over instead of craving control over what you don’t.” React to this quote. What are some things you can’t control in your life? How can you release them so that you can focus on controlling what you can control? What are some things you can control in your life? What can you do to better control those things? Explain your thoughts.

Then, students read independently. Students with an excused absence should read independently for 20 minutes and submit a half-page summary of their reading and reactions to their reading with an absent form attached for credit.

Today, students used class time to work on their Independent Reading Projects. They will need to checkpoint their setting puzzles during class tomorrow. As a reminder: Checkpoints are when students show Mrs. Evans that they are about 95% finished with the assignment so that Mrs. Evans can be sure they’re not way off base and give very basic feedback to students so they are not turning in something completely incorrect. They are required steps in the assignment, which means they are for a grade.

Today, students finished their practice AIR test from yesterday. If students finished early, they were to do this week’s NoRedInk.com assignment and/or read independently.
