As a mom of a little 6th grade Pup, one of the strategies I used this week to help him prepare was writing down all of his assignments in one place. If your child has their planner, then they could use that, but if not any paper would do. On Monday, I had him go through TEAMS and Google Classroom (G.C.) and find the two required assignments per course. I also asked that he open any attachments to really get a clear idea of how long the assignment might take. I hope my son having all of the assignments listed in one place will help keep us from having a bit of a made dash to get everything done at the end of the week, and that this strategy might help you (your child) as well if this executive functioning has been a struggle so far.
To aid in all things organizational, at long last, Mr. Garrett's Google account has been fixed and he has teacher access to G.C. Starting next week all 4 core 8L teachers will make their weekly assignments via G.C. to be consistent.
Students will have until Friday to finish their assignments if they need time. However, Friday is an official holiday. So if there are any assignments that are more likely to need teacher assistance we can't encourage you enough to get those finished early in the week before the teachers are on holiday. From a parent stand point, a quick check in with your child on Thursday morning might help them to prioritize their day.
Things seem to be changing so rapidly, I keep having to go back and redo work because it does not match with the most recent decision. I know last week, I told you that the work was the end of the 5th cycle. However, yesterday afternoon we were told that we should keep taking late/missing/redo grades from the 5th cycle (from prior to March 13) until Thursday 4/9/2020. So that is why I am quickly whipping up all of this information to get it to you as quickly as possible. If your child has a failing grade, there is still time, although not very much, to make an attempt to raise the grade. Have your child reach out to their teacher(s) to see what can be done in the next 48 hours or so.
