Room 13 update on Zoom meeting Wed & Fri @11

Hello Room 13

I hope you are all doing well!

I have been learning how to work the zoom app so we can check in to see each other. While I am in the learning process Mario Snow will send an invite link to meet tomorrow Wed. and Fri at 11am. It will be so nice to see you all. I you are able to join on either day or both please do. As we get more direction from the district, meeting through zoom may be more frequent after spring break. Each child has zoom on their portal so they should be able to use the Chromebook that were checked out. Thank you all for being so flexible and supportive during this time. I look forward to seeing you tomorrow & Friday.

Take Care

Please pick up workbooks Fri. March 20 @ 9-10am

Dear Room 13 families,


Please come to pick up your child's workbooks and any text books tomorrow in front of Room 13 between 9 & 10am.


Since our school closure is expected to extended it may be helpful if your children had their workbooks at home. I apologize for any inconvenience this may cause, since we were initially  told two weeks and use our online components I did not think it was necessary to send home all the books.  All books will be placed on the picnic table in front of the classroom to be picked up between 9-10.  After tomorrow school will be shut down. 


Look forward to seeing you tomorrow,

Regina Adams

Mo Williams doodle/art

Hi all, I was just told about this Mo Williams Doodle site and I thought of my class. They love reading his books so I though they may enjoy seeing him teach about doodling and art.  A new video is suppose to be released each day. I attached  the link on a separate post because I couldn't get it to work through this message. It is on you tube so please watch/ view together to be sure all content and or ads are appropriate.  I do think they will enjoy seeing one of their favorite authors. Have a great St,Patricks Day! 

email message: thank you & frequent questions 3/16

Hello Everyone,

Well we made it through the first day. I appreciate all your patience and effort into helping your child get set up for the weeks’ assignments. Through the feedback today some were able to maneuver easier through the sites than others. So, if you come to something that you can’t find, don’t worry as you and your child familiarize yourselves with the site it should get easier.

Here are some of the answers to the questions I got today that others may also want to know:

* I wanted to let you know the work can be done at your pace. Please do worry if you can’t complete it all, each household is different  as each child works differently; what should take ten minutes at school can drag into 30min at home ( I get it my 8th grader is still working on today assignments) And children work differently with their parents than with me.  So, it is not worth the fight. Let them go on to their portal, they are very familiar with it and everything they push is a learning tool. The days outline is just a guide should you need it.

*All worksheets done can be brought to me when we return. There is no need to email or take pictures. I can see when work is done on reflex,  iready  and wonders (McGraw hill).

*Tonight, I will post the spelling and grammar pages since some couldn’t access them. I will also post journal /story paper if you want to use that ,but any lined paper you have is fine. I will also add an optional shamrock color page and word search just for fun. So when you check the edlio site scroll down to see prior posts. I had already attached the math & practice pages if you had not picked them up at school.

*All  reading texts can be accessed through the mcgraw hill sight, wonders tab  book with squirrel 


Wonders Grade 1


Then the To Do tab   

Then you can see the  list  text and assignments
