Welcome to 3S, where you will SOAR!
Thank you for coming onto our website. You will get most of your information from our Google Classroom and emails from me. This site will contain general information that you'll have for a reference when you need it.
My email address is firstname.lastname@example.org, or call the school 973-584-5549 and they will get the message to me.
Our All-Virtual option this year has our "live" school day act as much like a traditional day in the classroom as possible. We have the same schedule every day. We emphasize Social Emotional Learning aspects throughout our curriculum, with a concentration on Math, Reading, and Writing. We have pullout programs for extra help, and we have Specials and Physical Education everyday. Our expectations are that we are on time to all of our Google Meets, we turn on our cameras, and we mute our microphones. We take full advantage of our breaks from the screen, to take care of our personal needs, and to be ready to learn when we return. We have all of our supplies with us in our work space.
You can find the list of school supplies under the parent tab of Franklin's website. Go to roxbury.org, select a school, choose Franklin, go to Parents, then Supply lists. Our supplies for virtual learning will help us easily move into in-school learning when it's time to do that. You'll see that there are just a few key items that 3S students need. The main thing is that we are using a subject-specific organization system, so we use certain colors of composition notebooks and folders. Please buy one composition notebook of each color- red, blue, green, and yellow, and one two-pocket folder of each of those colors. If you can't find one of those colors, then just get black. You should label these: Red is Reading. Blue is Writing. Green is Math. Yellow is SEL, Science, and Social Studies. You'll want to keep all of your other supplies in one container, such as a pencil box or a large zip-lock bag. We have learned from doing virtual learning last Spring, it is best to have a regular place to work at home that is separate from where you play. So, you can just keep all of your supplies with your Chromebook in your work space. Work packets will be sent home with some additional materials, and you will be notified of those dates. Anything that needs to be returned to the school can be dropped off on those same days.
Finally, you have already learned about using some websites which are helpful for learning and practice at home, such as Raz-kids for Reading, IXL for both Language Arts and Math, and brainpop jr for all academic areas. We'll be using those again this year. Stay tuned for more websites as we learn them.
