Virtual Library Lesson #5

Please enjoy our Virtual Library Lesson #5 : Teaching Books tutorial.  It is an overview of Teaching Books (a California State library database). It is an engaging collection of over 240,000 resources that brings books to life, including author interviews, book trailers, and more.  Age appropriate for Grade K-6. 

Black Lives Matter Week of Action

As you know, the Black Lives Matter movement has been in the news recently. Many students are aware, to some degree, of this movement. Educators across the nation have worked together to create a week of action that will take place February 1st through the 5th. Addressing Black Lives Matter in the classroom is acknowledging an important current event topic. Bringing issues of racial justice into the classroom not only affirms the identities of our students but is crucial to fostering critical engagement with the world. Some of our teachers will address this in age appropriate ways and follow the lead of our students around what they know about the movement and what they want to know. Teachers will focus on identities, empathy for others, how to speak up about injustices they see, and how we all have a responsibility to advocate for equity. Please feel free to use the resources in this article to discuss the topic as a family.

Happy New Year to all our Hedenkamp families! We wish you all a very safe, healthy, and meaningful year! We are excited to welcome all our Huskies back for our 3rd quarter of the school year. Our 3rd quarter begins on Tuesday, January 5th with a minimum day. Instruction will continue virtually for now. We look forward to returning in person later this year, as soon as it is safe. As we prepare for the start of the quarter, please support your child in setting goals for a successful quarter. Also, please ensure your child has everything they need for virtual learning. If your child needs a school laptop or needs to exchange their current school laptop for one that functions better, please stop by the bus loop on Monday, January 4th from 2:30 pm to 5 pm. Ms. Rojo and I will be on hand to provide any technical support you may need. We thank you for your continued support as we embark on a new quarter of Distance Learning! We’ve got this, Huskies!

Technology Accelerators

We have three main technology accelerators at Hedenkamp. These tools are funded by our district to help support students build math and reading skills. Our teachers also use several other technology tools to enhance instruction. We would like your support in helping ensure your child builds in time every week to use our technology accelerators as it is part of their asynchronous instruction and will help them grow as readers and mathematicians. All students should use iReady Math for at least 45 minutes weekly. K-1 students should use Smarty ants for 20 minutes daily. Dual Language students must use Smarty Ants Español. 2nd and 3rd grade students may also use Smarty Ants 20 minutes daily if they are not yet using Achieve 3000. 2nd – 6th grade students should read at least 2 Achieve 3000 articles weekly and pass the activity with a score of 75% of higher. We are looking for quality over quantity. If your child is in our Dual Language program they must complete one article at 75% or higher in Spanish and one in English. All our technology accelerators can be accessed here: https://www.cvesd.org/district/students If you or your child need support accessing these tools, please let your child’s teacher or me know. Please remember your child should complete the work on these technology accelerators independently. We appreciate your support in setting up consistent routines so students are able to complete these requirements independently each week.
