2020-21 School Year 

We know that there are a lot of questions about the upcoming school year and what it will look like. Please refer to the following county resources and check this page throughout the summer for updates concerning your child's education. We look forward to working with you in whatever capacity possible as we stay safe this school year.

The main way that we will be communicating instruction will be through the use of Zoom and Canvas. Canvas is a Learning Management System that allows teachers to virtually deliver content to students. Please explore the resources below to help you better understand Canvas.

Reading Strategies:

Prompts to ask your child if they get stuck on a word while reading:

  • Look at the picture.
  • Get your mouth ready to say the first sound.  (example - /c/ in cat)
  • Stretch out the word. (example - /c/ /a/ /t/)
  • Look for known chunks in the word. (example - /ch/ and /at/ in chat)
  • Flip the vowel sound. (example - A can say /a/ like cat or /a/ like cake)
  • What word would make sense in this sentence?

After your child reads a book ask him/her questions (encourage your child to use text evidence when answering questions) such as:

  • Who were the characters? 
  • What are some similarities and differences among two characters in the book?
  • What was the setting? Did the setting change?
  • What was the conflict/problem?
  • What was the resolution/solution?
  • What was the most important event that happened? Why?
  • What did this story make you think of?
  • What surprised you in this text?
  • What questions do you have while reading this text?
