Mrs. Steinly's Classroom Page

Welcome!
Welcome to the 21-22 school year! I am looking forward to a great school year! Here are a few announcements for the start of our year!

GOOGLE CLASSROOM
Right now, I will only be using Google Classroom for important information or to share news and fun events  If we would need to use virtual learning at any time this year,  lessons and zoom schedules will be listed here!  Please be sure to join your child's homeroom teacher's google classroom as well. 

DAILY SCHEDULE
This is just a general schedule and not student specific. My student's individual schedules vary since I have a variety of learners and grades in my classroom. But this general schedule will give you a good idea of the awesome learning that is going on in Mrs. Steinly's classroom!

We will be working on hygiene daily including the importance of hand washing, not touching your face, covering your mouth when you cough or sneeze, personal space, and mask wearing (for students who will tolerate it).  Please continue to reinforce all of these personal hygiene lessons at home!
 
I have missed my students so much and am very anxious to get this school year started! No matter the situation, I am here for my students and for the parents!  I will work with you to make sure that your child is getting everything they need to have a happy, healthy and successful school year!

Virtual Learning Day

Parents - Just a reminder that if there is a virtual learning day (snow day), Mrs. Steinly's clsassroom will NOT be virtual.  We have opted to skip the virtual learning days and add a day on to the end of the school year.  In the event of a school cancellation that becomes a "virtual learning day", my students will just have a snow day and we will add an extra day on to the end of the school year.
 
Thank you!

How to Use Google Classroom and Assignments

Hello! This is a video that will help you navigate our virtual learning a little easier.  It shows you how to log-in to Google Classroom and how to use the different types of assignments and activities once you are there!  I hope this helps! Remember to email me if you need any assistance!

Distance Learning

Hello,
I miss my students so much!  This is a tough situation but I want to work together to provide them with learning opportunities over the next few weeks!
I am going to set up a Google Classroom.  I will invite each of you to the classroom and there will be activities set up with in the classroom for the kids to work on weekly.
I am also open to using Zoom to have face to face meetings with parents and students if you are interested.  I am learning how to use all of these new platforms as I go so please bear with me!
I will post links and other information here as it becomes available!
Hope to see all of you very soon!
Mrs. Steinly
