(Below, you’ll find the email I sent to the 7th grade students on Monday, March 16. Use it as a resource if you’d like!)
“Hello, 7th Grade Students!
I hope you are all well. I miss you all dearly, and I hope to see you gracing these empty halls soon! A school void of laughing students is an eerie place to be.
This is going to be a bit of an odd week, so please don’t hesitate to email me if you are confused about anything. I am quite reachable, and I’ll try to get back to you as soon as possible to quell any confusions or misunderstandings.
—- Here is what you need to know for the week:
- Teachers will be online Tuesday-Thursday from 9am-12pm. This is a time for you to get quick feedback via email, chat, or comments on documents. As Friday was a scheduled day off, it will continue to be so. You may choose to use this day to continue working.
- Every day, look at the 7th Grade School Work Hub to see what assignments you have to do. There are daily assignments and weekly assignments depending on the class. This will be updated daily. Also, this page will serve as a hub, but your Google Classrooms will be where more detailed information is. Be sure to check both out!
- I would strongly suggest making some sort of plan or schedule so that you can systematically accomplish all of your work. If you’re like me, structure is really helpful. Make a plan and stick to it! Perhaps make a Google Doc organizer, write a list down and check assignments off as you go, have a schedule posted in your room… since you’re in 7th grade, I’ll leave the decision making on how that schedule will work up to you, but having an approach setup will be helpful. Perhaps share ideas with a classmate and hold each other accountable!
Have a safe and hand-washing-filled week,
(P.S. — I have a copy of Bezzerwizzer at home, so if anyone wants to lose at trivia, let me know. It’s easy to play via Google Hangouts!)”
As an aside, parents, if you’d like me to send more work home, please ask!
