VFES Families! :)

Hey VFES Braves! Starting Monday, we will be having a "VIRTUAL" Spirit Week!

Parents: Use the hashtag on Facebook, Instagram, or Twitter to show your black and gold spirit!

We can't wait to "see" everyone as we begin our distance learning journey!

Parents: This would be something really fun to do as a family over Spring Break!

I'm trying something a little different with today's story... Hopefully this works better than uploading a video! :)

Our first week of distance learning is wrapping up today! Did you have any issues with any assignment? Do you have any questions for me? I miss your kids so much. I hope everyone is well. Feel free to reach out if you need anything! Reading video will be up shortly, depending on the speed of my internet today! :)

Parents: Check your email! I just sent information about a new way we can connect during these eLearning Days.

eLearning Day 4! I'm so proud of my kiddos. Comment below to tell me what you've done this week. I miss all of you!

This is an awesome opportunity!

P.S. Sorry for no video today! I have been battling a migraine all day. I’ll be back tomorrow to check in!

This is such a great opportunity for my kids to combine their love of Disney, or any amusement/theme park for that matter, their imagination, their creativity, and their decision-making skills all together for one purpose: creating an amazingly fun park for all to enjoy!

Khan Academy has partnered with the Imagineers at Disney to create a FREE course that students can work their way through to create their own park, complete with characters.

This is not part of our e-learning, but I've spent the past hour researching this and working through parts of the course and decided I just HAD to share!

If you're interested, click the link below to go to Khan Academy. Click "Sign Up" and have students use their Google log-in information from school. This will allow them to enter into my course and will help with saving their work as they work through the course at their own pace.

Enjoy!

eLearning Day 2 Video! Today, I talk all about your assignments, Epic! from home, and a special challenge for you today! :)

(Spoiler Alert: The challenge is to post a picture of what you are doing today in the comments! For those of you who have students who used to be in my class, post your pictures, too! I will post a picture of what I'm doing for every picture of what you are doing!)

What do you do when you realize you won’t see each other for three weeks? You forget about class work and have a dance party! I’ll miss these silly kids.

If you haven’t heard, SCSD2 will be doing elearning next week. This is how we feel about not seeing each other for 3 weeks. 👎🏻

For part of our adjective study this week, we described bubble gum. Of course, the kids had to have some fun with it!

Our 3rd grade friend was also a guest reader today! She earned a coupon to read to a primary class, and she chose us! We enjoyed the fun book she chose for us!

Yesterday’s guest reader was pretty special!

Mrs. Banister’s class had a special guest reader today for Read Across America. The father of one of her students read to the class via FaceTime while he’s deployed overseas!

Today’s guest reader was local dance teacher Lisa Morgan (better known as Ms. Lisa). We loved visiting with her and listening to some Pete the Cat! We can’t wait until she visits again!
