“Although PWCS is unable to provide instruction or class assignments to students while schools remain closed, our School Division hopes that the suggestions for optional learning activities posted here will help parents support student learning until schools re-open. Please remember that use of these materials and participation in these activities are optional and neither grades nor course credit will be awarded.“ 

Hello!

I hope everyone is well and staying safe.  I miss seeing your faces and all the great conversations we have about the things we are reading.  Due to the current health crisis, we get to tryout a new school format.  Thankfully, our reading classes have included some online learning already with the use of Read180 and System 44.  You have been used to working by yourself on the software and reading and responding to different genres of literature.  So, that should make our shift to complete online learning a little easier for you.  We will be using Microsoft Teams as a classroom platform.

You can use your Office 365 email account to access our Teams classroom.  Just click on the 9-dot waffle at the top left corner of the screen and you will find Teams in the menu of apps.

Click on the app, and you will find our class as one of the team options for you.  When you click on our class, you will see messages on our discussion board.  This is where we will do most of our communication.  Of course, you can still email, or we could even video chat through Zoom if we need to.  At the top of the screen, you will see a tab for files.  This is where you will find materials for our class.  Right now, I have posted some activities for you that I think you will find very interesting.

In case you cannot access your 365 account right now, you can also find links to our reading sites and files that contain the activities on the left side of this page.

Please feel free to contact me if you have any problems or need help with the activities.  I’m looking forward to hearing from you soon!

Mrs. Gray
