PWCS has released
details of the Phase 4 of the Continuity of Learning Plan* for all students, that will begin April 14 following Spring Break and the Teacher Workday. This plan provides more specific direction on the Virtual Schoolhouse and how to successfully navigate learning virtually. The plan is outlined for you on the PWCS.edu website under the COVID-19 updates.


4th Grade Teachers will be collaborating on weekly activities for students and will provide you with activities for each subject area on a one page assignment document. Again, these activities are optional and will not be graded, but we want to encourage participation in the activities so that students do not fall behind. Each day students will have about three activities for to work on while at home (a subject, read to self, and an ENCORE activity). This is to provide you with extra support as you try to homeschool your child. The activities will be meaningful and related to 4th grade curriculum and SOL standards. When students finish an activity, you/they can take a picture of it and insert it into an email to send to me, however most assignments will come with an digital quick check provided in a link. Students are also encouraged to continue working on IXL, Dreambox, and coming soon Study Island.

Only one subject will be taught per day by our 4th grade teachers and activities will be in different formats depending on what the teacher chooses to offer. Students should only be working for one hour on these particular activities per day.  We do not expect students to be working for long periods of time at home, and students can work on these activities whenever it is convenient for you. There is no set time of day for these classes. If students want to do additional work online on Study Island, iXL, Dreambox, or on any other activity offered by PWCS on the Home Learning Page, it is up to them. In the previous Dojo post I provided assignments and achievement levels for students to use IXL to bring up a past grade on a test in this marking period. I have also provided digital copies of all other assignments in in Parent VUE. I will be extending this offer for the remainder of this week as I am subject to process report cards using graded assignments from before March 14th. Please use my class page for parent videos of how to access such things Parent VUE, IXL, and Teams). Students can also work on the activities provided by PWCS on their list of Home Resources. http://www.pwcs.edu/cms/One.aspx?portalId=340225&pageId=41506907
