How can I help? Resources for 5th and 6th Grade Families.

Hello, Families!

If you have a child who is in the fifth and sixth grade I might be able to help as you transition to working at home. If you have any questions send me a direct message through twitter or email me at adrienne_ayala@redlandsschools.net. I’ve had the honor of working with families during the last seven years in the Redlands Unified School District and my students are the ones who tell me what they love to do and what they think is boring. While I can’t always make the students TOTALLY HAPPY, I do know what online programs they love. There are so many programs out there………

but if my students had to choose these three are online platforms are at the top of their list, Flocabulary, Scholastic News, and Khan Academy. 

Flocabulary

They love learning through music. Check out their website. They are offering free access for the next 60 days.

Scholastic-Learn at Home

For the last five years, I have used Scholastic in the classroom. I love it, the students love it. It’s engaging and fun! Please check out the Scholastic Learn at Home they are offering.

Khan Academy

We use Khan Academy with our district Math in Focus curriculum as well as the Grammar Lessons to align with our Journeys program. The students enjoy Khan and it’s free!

I’m going to attach a sample schedule for 5th grade with links. If you can’t get the link to open please let me know. I’m in the process of working on a sixth-grade schedule. In the meantime, happy learning!!!

Sample 5th Grade Schedule

As far as time frames go. That’s up to you. I recommend working for 40 minutes and taking a break. Every student learns differently and it’s hard to determine how long it will take a student to complete an assignment. That’s the beauty of working at home.

Welcome to the 2019-2020 School Year

2002

Welcome to 5th and 6th grade. My name is Mrs. Ayala, and this is my seventh year at Redlands eAcademy.  I have over fifteen years of teaching experience working with students in grades Kindergarten-6th Grade. With the majority of my time in 5th and 6th grade. As your child’s teacher, I’ve set two major goals for all my students; I want them to be successful academically and want to see growth in respect for themselves and others.

I believe learning can and should be fun and that students are active participants in the learning process. It is my goal to empower students to take ownership of their learning and to provide them with opportunities to be creative, critical thinkers, collaborators, and effective communicators while building a strong foundation for life-long learning.

When I’m not working with students I’m enjoying my time with my husband, 9-year-old daughter and 11-year-old son.

You can follow me on Twitter @BlendedTeacher1 to see some of the exciting activities that we are completing in class.  If you have any questions, you can email, call, or set up an appointment to meet with me. I will respond back to you within 24 hours.

I’m looking forward to a great year!
