Distance Learning Information
Please see Google Classroom for Mrs. Jordan's ELA learning assignments.
As you know, we are moving forward with distance learning for St. Mary’s School. Thank you for any help you can provide to make this transition successful. It will be new and different for all of us, but I can feel the climate amongst our faculty and staff to make this meaningful and successful for our students.
I plan to utilize Google Classroom for posting and receiving assignments. Students are familiar with this and it should be comfortable. We will continue to use the materials we typically learn from (books and workbooks), as well as some online resources.
My hope is that we will also meet on a regular basis in a Zoom conference (zoom.us) where we can read aloud together with direct instruction from me. I realize that there are many possibilities for complications (devices, internet, etc.), but I would like to give it a try. It may be an opportunity for us to learn online in a more typical classroom setting as well as preserve our solidarity as a class.
Students are more than welcome to work at their own pace as long as assigned due dates are met. I plan to utilize a website called newsela.com as one of our learning resources. Log in procedures and assignments will be posted in Google Classroom. I will be available by email and by phone for any questions or help that is needed.
Please know that the safety of you and your families are all in my prayers.
