My class schedule
Welcome to Ms. Haney's web page. Here you will find some information that should be interesting and helpful to you.
If you want to get in touch with me, please send me an email:firstname.lastname@example.org, or call the school and leave a message (434-1949).
Please be sure your child is getting 9-12 hours of sleep a night. The experts say that is the requirement for this age, and I would guess many of my students are not getting enough solid sleep as they are wanting to sleep in class. When they get enouigh sleep they fuss less, cooperate more, are more enjoyable to be around and in general are kinder, nicer people to live with. Thank you for your help with this.
. Please continue to talk to your child about what is going on in school. The more they discuss what they are learning, the easier it is for them to "own" the materials. Use this page as a starting point if you get the typical response of "Nothiing." when you ask how school went and what they learned today. The more they talk about what they learned and what they are doing, the better they will understand it!!
I know we left science behind, however, please continue to discuss with your child the moon phases. This is a difficult concept for some students at this level and above. Not only will it help them to retain what they know, (or help cement what they are still struggling with) but it gives you one more reason to have a quiet moment with this child, to have an adult talk about what is happening in our sky. Most, but not all, of the students can tell you where the moon is at this point in relation to the sun and the Earth! Have fun!
We will finish the study of the main three settlements and how they differed: The New England, The Mid-Atlantic and The Southern Colonies, this coming Tuesday, March 14th and move into the Revolutionary War. Please ask your child what he/she knows about history, what stories of the past they have read or been told, and what it means to them. Most of the students are enjoying history and the stories that go with it.
Thank you for checking your child's planner, daily, as well as reminding your child to bring his/her planner back to school each day.
It is not easy to become a young adult. The more we can do to help them become more responsible, kind and caring, and use integrity in all they do, the better off they and others will be for it. Good luck as your child journeys on into the teenage years. I hope that we are able to work together with your child on this amazing journey.
