teaching   Hello first grade "Littles,"


    Next week April 6-10 we will be starting our distance learning. I will be available if you need any support. You can contact me by phone, email, or ClassDojo Monday - Friday from 7:45 am - 3:15 pm. The school phone number you can reach me at is 505-384-2001 extension 2632. You will have to leave me a message and I will contact you as soon as I can. My email address is: mariateresa.torres@estancia.k12.nm.us if you choose to contact me this way.


    This is going to be a new experience for all of us. We all will need to practice patience, kindness, and understanding. At the same time, we can have lots of fun learning in a new way. You will be to see learning videos in math, phonics, and reading comprehension starring yours truly, Mrs. Baker, and Mrs. Miller. We will be sending weekly workbook pages that correspond with the videos each week. 


    You will be expected to turn in one assignment in reading and one assignment in math each week. These assignments will be graded. I bet you're wondering how you're supposed to turn your weekly math and reading assignments that are being graded. Well, we are asking you to snap a picture of your independently completed work and send it in ClassDojo message to me. If you are unable to send your assignment to me in this manner please let me know and we can figure something else out. 


    I really miss seeing all of your happy little faces and interacting with you on a daily bases. I know this is hard for all of us, but we can do it! I so look forward to seeing you and interacting with you on ClassDojo. Feel free to send me any fun videos or pictures of things you are doing while we are away from school (e.g. arts and crafts, playing out in the yard, projects, or reading a book). 


    Sending you BIG hugs,


    Ms. Torres
