Welcome to Mrs. Martin's Magical Land of Motivational Learning!
    Beginning June 8th-10th:
    Attention Students and Families: Click here to access your e-learning activities for Monday, June 8 - Wednesday, June 10, 2020. If you have any questions as you work through the activities, you can email me at EMAIL ADDRESS from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. 
    This week students will have a choice between two different choice boards. One board is a Passion Project, which will take them through the end of the year, and started the project last week,and the second one is just like our previous choice boards. The second choice board is to begin with box #5 in the middle, and choose two other activities to complete by the end of the week. The board instructs  students where to submit the work.
    Thank you!

      • Attention Students and Families:  To access your e-learning activities for each elearning day in June, please go to Google Classroom, to view assignments from me, and the choice board using the link Mr. Lewis sent, or from the link above.  

    Parents: Once your student has completed the designated activities, make sure to record his/her E-Learning Day Attendance through Powerschool. Thank You!                    

     In our classroom, we embrace and celebrate DIVERSITY!  I want everyone to be able to share where you are from, interesting facts about your culture, and ways you celebrate special events with your family. 
    I believe that all students are able to succeed, and it may be using different techniques from their peers, which is perfectly fine. We take our strengths and build upon them, and then create, showing what we have learned. That means someone may show mastery of content areas using drawings, creative writing, using graphic organizers, acting out in role-play, or even creating a song.  Students then feel successful using techniques they are comfortable with, which is allowing each individual to feel confident and shine!
    Your children will be challenged this year in our exciting and safe environment. They will be asked to think deeply and use extension skills during class discussion. They will work together in large group, small group, and pair/share settings. Please take the time to ask them what they have been learning about, and how they show what they know. Taking an interest in their academics is a wonderful bonding experience for students and  their parents, and parents and teachers.
