Below are some more suggestions for remote learning from The Springfield Public Schools
😊

Reading

While school is not in session, students should be reading a variety of books for 60 minutes a day. This does not have to be all at once. It can be cumulatively through the course of each day. Whenever possible, younger children should be read to and read with as part of that 60 minutes. Students may wish to read from a variety of sources that include books, magazines, and eBooks.

 

All students can access eBooks through ScholasticLitPro.  Scholastic Lit Pro is a wonderful resource for our kindergarten-grade 5 students to enjoy eBooks that include stories as well as informational texts.

 

Students should also have an opportunity to talk to someone about what they have read. They should be encouraged to share what they like or don’t like, what they have learned, and what else they may want to know.

 

iReady Reading – each student in K-5 should log into iReady and spend at least 15 minutes working in iReady reading at least 3 times per week.

 

Other resources – the following sites have reading resources for elementary students.

 

Writing

Students should have an opportunity to write daily. This opportunity may include the following:

  • Writing in response to what they have read: retelling, adding to or changing the ending, comparing two stories, and sharing an opinion on what they learned about a topic or about a character
  • Creative writing: personal diary, poetry, stories about their lives, made-up stories, sharing what they know about a topic
  • Drawing is also an important component of writing. Students should be encouraged to draw pictures to accompany their stories. They should be encouraged to include pictures of what they are sharing on a topic.
