1.  The student will need to show up online at the start time of the class for attendance and to receive the overview of the class, the mini lesson, and expectations for the daily assignment. 

2.  Each day, via ZOOM (until K12 is fully operational) I will provide a greeting and tip of the day, review our standards and indicator followed by a picture of the day with student responses, then a short video to view, or a short mini lesson followed by an assignment.   I will not ask the student to answer more than 1 page of work per day which provides ample time to complete the work.  It is less than we would be doing in a live classroom where I am there to make sure students are completing  work.  Occasionally, larger projects  will be posted under classwork to complete.   Guided readings will be posted in their entirety and students may work ahead if their schedule permits.

3.  The assignment will be either a teacher created resource with online resources or a guided reading activity using the students’ online textbook.  The link for the textbook is:

If your student would prefer to use a hardcopy textbook, we can make arrangements to have one checked out in their name.
