Establish Classroom Rules

Here are the modified Derech Eretz rules for the online classroom.  Make sure to review them with your students.  We will be asking the Madrichim to track student’s adherence to the rules.  Whenever you are team teaching one of you can also track.  The form for tracking will be ready for Week 2’s lesson.

Derech Eretz for the Online Classroom

  1. Our students:
  2. Come to class ready to learn
  3. Use kind words
  4. Listen while others talk
  5. Raise their hand and wait their turn to talk
  6. Turn on video and look at the screen

Student Issues

Do not wait until the end of the day to notify me of student issues.  When anything unusual happens it is your responsibility to report it to me immediately.  It is my job to help you handle anything out of the ordinary that happens with students.  I will give you direction and seek out whatever resources might be needed to resolve the problem.  To do this, call or text my cell. 

Sunday Student Schedule

** May run until 12:15 for 4th and 5th grades.

Zoom Rooms

Every Sunday PreK-7 will start in the Lower El Classroom.  HS will start in the HS classroom.  At 10:15 Upper El will end the meeting and go to the Upper El Classroom.  All students have received cards with the QR code to the Zoom classrooms they will use.  The cards also have a short url printed on them that can be entered into devices that don’t have a QR reader.  The password for the Zoom meeting is included in the QR code and in the short url. HS students have a card for all three rooms.  Upper El has cards for Upper El and Lower El.  Lower El students have only one Zoom login card.

We will use the Lower El Classroom on Wednesdays.

Madrichim

The madrichim will not be with you this week.  After Steph and I met, we decided that the Madrichim will join you beginning week 2 and will be with you beginning at 1015 for your Judaism lesson and from 11:15-11:35 for your Hebrew lesson.  As you plan your lesson for week 2, make sure to identify roles for the madrichim.  You will learn more about this in the teacher training on Sunday.

Weekday Teacher Schedule 

Here is the weekday schedule.  Each day is 4:30-6:30.  We may choose to adjust the times later based upon attendance and parent feedback.  (Nava I am aware that you need to leave early.)

Team Meetings

We have one hour per week budgeted for your lesson prep.  Try to keep your team meetings to 30 minutes so that you have 30 minutes to read and review the material.  If this is not sufficient, please let me know.

Lower El – 9/17 8pm

Upper El – 

HS – Method for planning TBD

Seesaw Announcements

Many of you have written announcements to parents and students in Seesaw.  Thanks!  Be sure that your messages to students are on their developmental and reading level.  Remember that you have the opportunity in Seesaw to send video messages.  Those would be well received by your students.  To send an announcement, click on the plus sign + .  To create a video message, select attachment and the bottom left of the announcement window.  You can edit the announcements you have already written and add video to them.  Be aware that parents are just beginning to sign up for Seesaw so they probably won’t see your message before school Sunday.

Weekday Activity Schedule

Parents have asked to have a schedule of what is happening when.  This will be a work in progress for a while as we see when students come and what works for them and One person will have a scheduled activity at any time so that at least one person is available to help with Activities and Challenges.
