Welcome to Distance Learning!
The plan for our class during our distance learning time will be for students to spend about 2.5 hours a day on school work. About 1.5 hours will be spent on language arts activities, and about 1 hour will be spent on math. There is room for flexibility in this plan, so don't feel like it has to look exactly the same way every single day.
I will be emailing out DLR, Math Review, and spelling pages weekly. I will also post them in the Class Files page of my website. Our weekly reading Record and Math Fluency are already there and ready to be printed out weekly.
Here is an outline of what the daily schedule will look like (*all times noted are approximate.)

- DLR (5 minutes)
- Spelling (5 Minutes)
- Independent Reading and Reading Log (40 minutes)
