Mrs. Sollazzo’s Class 2A
Below please find the process that Ms. Kouzman will be using to administer tests to the second grade in this new virtual remote teaching environment.
Please note: You will receive advance notification of all tests in your child's homework as usual.
RELIGION AND MATH CHAPTER TESTS, LANGUAGE ARTS SELECTION/VOCABULARY AND GRAMMAR SKILLS TESTS : The night before the test date, Ms. Kouzman will email you a scanned copy of each test page. You will need to print the test pages and have your child complete it. Then, a picture should be taken of the completed test pages, and emailed back to me (Mrs. Sollazzo) by 8 PM the following night. (For example: If a test is scheduled for a Wednesday, the blank test pages will be emailed to you on Tuesday evening, and pictures of the completed test should be emailed back to me by 8PM on Wednesday evening.)
LANGUAGE ARTS SPELLING TESTS: Spelling tests will be administered LIVE during one of the daily virtual Zoom chat sessions. All video cameras will be turned off and participants muted, so the children can only see/hear Ms. Kouzman administering the test. They will not be able to see any of their classmates. They will have to write the words and sentences down on a clean sheet in their Homework Notebooks along with their normal heading. Upon completion, I ask that you take a picture of the test and email it to me (Mrs. Sollazzo). As usual, Handwriting will also count as a grade.
LANGUAGE ARTS ASSESSMENT TESTS WITH ESSAYS: For the next two unit weeks, we will not be administering the Assessment/Essay portion of the test. If the school closure extends past the Easter holiday, we will reassess adding them in.
**Please allow your child to answer the test questions on their own, so I can get a true assessment of how they have grasped the material. All tests must be completed on the day assigned and pictures of the completed pages sent to me by that evening by 8PM. Any completed tests not received by 8PM on the day assigned will have points deducted from it.**
As always, thank you for your help.
I hope this email finds you and your family well. As you have been recently notified by the school administration, St. Thomas the Apostle School will be participating in a virtual learning program beginning Tuesday, March 17 th thru Friday, March 20 th , or until we hear otherwise.
Each evening, I will be sending an email to your child’s St. Thomas Gmail account regarding the next day’s work. This is the same account they use in Digital Technology each week when they log in. The email address ends in sttaob.com. If your child is not sure what their Username Email Address is, please let me know and I will send it to you in a separate email. The Password for all accounts was originally set as: angels123
Within this daily email you will find video recordings of Ms. Kouzman explaining the Language Arts, Math, and Religion lessons/concepts for that day. The email will also contain the daily assignment list (worksheets and workbook pages) and homework related to that material for that day. By sending you the lessons prerecorded this way, your child will be able to view these videos at a time that is convenient for both of you in the event they need assistance, as I know many of you may still be going to work.
In addition, your child will have the opportunity to ask questions pertaining to that day’s lessons and see/speak with me live each day between 1:00 and 1:30 PM. She will be using an online group video conferencing program called Zoom.us.com. Your daily email will contain a URL link and meeting code to each day’s live meeting. (Please note: The first time you log into the live Zoom.com meeting via the URL, you will receive a pop-up box stating you need to download a plug in.) If your child does not have Internet access at that time, there will also be a call-in number they can use.
She will also post the classwork and homework assignments on my St. Thomas teacher page each day. The only thing you will not find on that page are the video links. For privacy purposes, those will only be sent in your child’s daily email.
As standard written tests will not be administered until we return to a normal classroom setting and she will not be able to check on work completion until we are back in school, I will be assigning IXL skills throughout the week which will be due the following day. In lieu of the weekly IXL assignments, I will be including an IXL skill just about nightly so I can confirm that each student has logged in, seen the assignments and completed something by the next day.
ACCESSING YOUR CHILD’S GMAIL ACCOUNT

- Please check your child’s St. Thomas Gmail account each morning for the day’s virtual video lessons, classwork assignments, and meeting URL, code log in, and/or phone number for the daily Q&A chat which will begin at 1:00 p.m. each day.
- View my St. Thomas website teacher page for a summarized list of daily class assignments and nightly homework as well.
- Complete all daily classwork, homework and IXL assignments in a timely manner and have your child call/log into the daily live Q&A to review the day’s classwork and discuss anything they might have found difficult if needed.
Thank you for your patience as we work to implement this virtual learning program. I know there will be bumps in the road, but together I know we will keep the children on track and moving forward in their 2 nd grade studies. Please reach out to me via email with any questions or concerns.
Welcome to second grade. This year is very exciting! Besides learning the three R’s, the students will also be making the Sacraments of Reconciliation and Eucharist.
You can reach me anytime by email firstname.lastname@example.org, by writing a note in your child’s homework notebook, or if an emergency arises by phone.
