I hope you had a great weekend and enjoyed the sun. I also hope you took advantage of the beautiful weather to go outside and get some fresh air.
Here are some suggested activities for the week of April 20th-24th.
You can spend some time each day working on Dreambox. This is a great resource to learn new skills and keep your math abilities sharp. When you start a lesson, it is important to finish the lesson before moving on to other lessons.
This week, I am posting a question of the week to try. I will have the answer to this problem posted on Monday, April 27th. The problem can be found at:
For student with limited access to technology, options could include board games, cards, Yahtzee, crib, puzzles, sudoku, etc.
Another option in Math could be to practice multiplication facts. A great way to learn these is by using flash cards if you have them. Students could create their own flash cards. Long multiplications are also an option: multiplying 2 by 1, multiplying 2 by 2, multiplying 3 by 1, multiplying 3 by 2.
For those of you who enjoyed the activity on birds last week, you can check out the activities at :
(The slideshow is great with some cool links for videos.)
If birds are not your thing, don't forget that ASD-N has a new STEAM challenge this week. This week’s activity can be found at:
(This week is all about wind power. Build a pinwheel, a kite or an anemometer. Many options are available on this site for you.)
**If you did not do the STEAM challenge last week, you could check out the week 1 challenge and do some work with plants.
I have given you many options! Pick what interest you!
Have a great week!

Hello parents and students,
The necessary student information to log on to Dreambox is now available. This is a reminder to parents to please send me an email so that I can forward your child's login information and allow him or her to get started in Math.

I have received many emails from parents requesting their child's login information for Dreambox. Unfortunately, I do not have that information at this time but I should have it in the next couple of days. I will get back to you as soon as possible with the user names and passwords.

Good morning students and parents,
I hope this message finds you safe and well. Even though we have not spoken nor seen each other in a few weeks, please know that I miss you and I have been thinking about you during this difficult time. I wish we could all return to school but unfortunately, that is not possible. Therefore, we must work together to find new and different ways of communicating that will allow teachers to offer you the opportunity to continue learning from home. Parents need not stress; we do not want to overwhelm anyone.
You will find a new tab titled “Learning from Home” on our Dr. Losier Middle School Web site: http://drlosier.nbed.nb.ca/. By opening this tab, you will find our school’s plan for continued learning from home as well as information and activities for continued Wellness. As time progresses, more information and activities could be added in this tab.
In the weeks to come, I will be posting suggested activities related to our curriculums on this teacher page. My plan is to post on Mondays and give out materials for the week.
One of the tools that I will be using in Math is an online Math program called “Dreambox”. This program is designed to keep students’ math skills current and at grade level. Parents are asked to send me an email at email@example.com . This will allow me to respond with your child’s Login and User Name for this online Math program. Students can then follow the link to access Dreambox: https://play.dreambox.com/login/knjs/aaj2. Also, if your child has a tablet or an Ipad, there is a free App they can download in the App store.
I will also suggest Science activities for students. Some activities will allow you to involve younger siblings at home or the whole family if you so desire.
My students know that I am not a “techy” person. This is new for all of us and it will definitely be a learning curve for me as well. There will be “bumps in the road” but know that I will do all that I can to help and support you in all activities that you do. We will have to be patient and we will have to work together. I can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions or need help. Please feel free to leave me a message at any time and I will get back to you. If you prefer a phone call, please let me know in the email and give me a phone number where you can be reached.
I look forward to hearing from you, and rest assured that I will be there to help and support you throughout this new process.
Be well and stay safe!!
