Welcome to Mrs. McDonald's Teacher Page!
First and foremost, I want all my kiddos to know that I miss being with you all. I hope everyone is staying safe and healthy.
Next week, we will begin online classes. I will have available for you a story with some discussion questions. Please remember when you are answering the discussion questions that you are to follow grammar guidelines. In other words, do not "text" your response. Write in complete sentences (complete thoughts), capitalizing your first word of every sentence. I know typing is a little different from writing, but be aware that I am your English teacher; thus, my expectation for writing is higher than your friends during a text chat.
This would be a great time to jounal, as well. Since what we are going through is a bit staggering, you could journal your thoughts on this situation daily to reflect on when you are older. You could add in local news articles, or your thoughts on the articles. How do you feel our govenment is handling this situation? How are you handling social distancing? Maybe think about what it would be like without internet? (What a scary thought! *shudder*) What are some things you miss about school? Church? Family gatherings? Sports? What are things you are enjoying at home? More family time? Playing games? Tik Toking? (I guess that's a word?)
If you need to get in touch with me, feel free to contact me via email at firstname.lastname@example.org, or cell phone (903) 570-7660, call or text. My office hours will be from 9:00 a.m. - 6 p.m. Mon-Fri.
Stay safe - Stay well - Stay home - Stay positive - Stay motivated!
Love to all,
