C-3 Updates

Posted by Carley Kennedy on 3/24/2020

Good morning, C-3 families!

Happy Tuesday - I hope this finds you well and rested.  I wanted to update everyone on a few things and share some more really great resources.  First, regarding Zoom.  We are still not legally allowed to use it as educators without the educator account/license. This is due to laws regarding student privacy.  I understand there might be some loopholes around that, but I'm a rule-follower (especially when it comes to my students).  The district has assured us that it applied for the educator account when the shelter-in-place first started and we should have it up and running soon.  I am very excited to use this tool once we can. 
In the meantime, please remember to have your child check out the daily Flipgrid video I post on Google Classroom.  This is a fun way for us all to see each other and keep in touch.  Today's video will be a very special one - a HAPPY BIRTHDAY to AFFAN!!  So, please have your child respond back with a thoughtful birthday message if they can.  We want to all help make him feel the birthday love today. ❤
Daily Movement Opportunity
I haven't tried this myself but wanted to share for those of you who are looking for some movement for your kids - Daily Wiggles and Jiggles at 8:45 am.  It is put on by a Zumba Instructor who has been doing a kids' dance class for 30-40 mins daily.  Its super cute and she takes song requests.  Join any day at 8:45 am!

Science Opportunity
This is an opportunity for live science labs.  We used to have this woman come to our classes many years ago at Fallon.  She is great!  She is currently  using Facebook Live to teach the labs. Below is the link to our Facebook page. On left side of Facebook will have a list that includes Videos, click on Videos and click on the Live link.

IXL Science and Social Studies
Lastly, for now, IXL has opened up their science and social studies sections to all subscribers (we usually just have access to math).  I've looked these over and I think the kids will love it!  Please encourage your child to try them.  They login using the same access via Clever as they do to access their IXL account for math.
My announcements/links
I will be uploading my emails to my school district webpage, so you can find my announcements and links more easily.  I know it is difficult  to keep up with all of the emails and information. 
I'm sending love to all of our C-3 family!
