Tarbox School Remote Learning Plan

Dear Tarbox Families:

The Tarbox staff hopes all students and families are doing well.  We wanted to provide families with some information on the Tarbox plan for remote learning.  Your child will be assigned weekly assignments in academic areas as well as specials.  Students will be expected to complete all their work by the end of the week.  If you are experiencing a hardship and your child is not able to complete their work please reach out to their teacher.  Teachers will be working with and supporting families during this time.  Your child will also be participating in daily lessons.  The lessons will be in reading, math, writing and grade 5 will have science.  The specialists will also meet with students throughout the week.  Below is additional information that will help you support your child with remote learning.  The Tarbox staff is here to support families through the process, please reach out with any questions or concerns you have.

Communication

Teachers will communicate with parents through Class Dojo.  It is important for parents/guardians to check Class Dojo each morning.  If you have not joined your child’s Class Dojo please do.  This will be the main way teachers will be communicating with families.  If you need to get in touch with your child’s teacher you can message them through Class Dojo or through email (below).

Expectations

Your child will be responsible for joining their teacher daily for whole group and small group lessons.  Teachers will post the link to all zoom classes in Class Dojo and in Clever, along with a schedule of when your child with have a zoom lesson.  The art, music and gym teachers will also be meeting with students and posting assignments in Clever.  Students are expected to be working for 3 hours a day from 9:00:12:00.  During this time teachers are available to hold classes and answer any questions students have.

Weekly Assignments

All students will receive weekly assignments.  Students can access their work by logging into their Clever account.  This is the same way students log in to do ST Math and Keyboarding Without Tears.

Students pledging at court office

 

All students are learning social studies through the Children Discovering Justice program this year. Ask your child what books he or she has read in social studies!

Fifth graders got the extra special opportunity to travel to the Moakley Federal Courthouse in Boston on November 17th. There, they played roles in a "mock trial" - they were attorneys (prosecution or defense), a judge, a clerk, the jury, or witnesses. We learned what all these people do in the justice system and then acted out the case. 

The Children Discovering Justice staff wrote in a letter to us:

"Justice is about helping each other, speaking your mind, listening to others, and always being kind. Your actions in the courtroom showed us how important justice is to you and that you know how to practice it very well. You should all be very proud of yourselves. Remember that this courthouse belongs to you and that you are welcome back anytime."

Maybe we have some future lawyers and judges in our fifth-grade class! 

Teachers dressed as literary characters

35 students descended on the school on a Saturday (and for the past 3 Saturdays in fact!) to experience the joy of learning. Third and fourth graders are soaring to Mount Olympus, where they are meeting the Greek gods and goddesses and hearing famous myths such as Arachne & Athena and Demeter & Persephone. Mrs. Mann has even been dressing up as mythological characters to model "point of view" - we're learning how to write stories using the first-person ("I") point of view. 

Fifth graders are also soaring, but to outer space. They've read about the moon landing of 1969, Native American folktales about how the stars got into the sky, and famous astronomers. We, too, are focusing on writing narrative stories about what we've read. 

MCAS is coming up in April and May and we will be READY!

 

 

Feast

The Tarbox School celebrated its third annual Thanksgiving Feast.  We would like to thank all the parents, teachers, and staff members for making this event possible. The food was delicious, and plentiful!  As always, we shared the extra nutrients with our friends from the Lazarus House. 

Have a wonderful Thanksgiving!
