• Learning Resources for Students and Parents

    Dear Parents, Students and Teachers,

    Governor Ducey and Superintendent Hoffman have announced an extension of school closures through the end of the 2019-2020 School Year. The Grand Canyon Unified School District #4 Board of directors ratified this closure notice on April 4, 2020. In order to support our parents, students and teachers during this closure we have created this web portal.

    Throughout this closure the Grand Canyon School District will continue working tirelessly to provide information about educational resources with this web portal and by delivering physical packets to support your student or students.

    The students can also find information from their teachers about class specific resources for review and how to stay current during the school closure.

    Please check this web portal regularly. We will be updating and adding additional resources as they become available.

    As a school, we recommend that parents and students work together to develop a simple daily work/play schedule or routine.

    I want to thank all parents, students and community members for their support during this challenging time.

    The content below is organized by Teachers with their recommendations, followed by a full Resource List.

    If you need to contact your teachers, please use this web form, or by Email if you know their email addresses.

    We are not publishing email addresses here because they are easy targets for malicious web bots. We apologize for any inconvenience, and if you already know your teacher's Email address please, by all means use it.

    Estimados Padres, Estudiantes y Maestros,

    El gobernador Ducey y el Superintendente Hoffman han anunciado una extensión de los cierres de escuelas hasta el final del Año Escolar 2019-2020. El Distrito Escolar Unificado de Grand Canyon #4 Junta Directiva ratificó este aviso de cierre el 4 de abril de 2020. Con el fin de apoyar a nuestros padres, estudiantes y profesores durante este cierre hemos creado esta página de web.

    A lo largo de este cierre, el Distrito Escolar del Gran Cañón continuará trabajando incansablemente para proporcionar información sobre los recursos educativos con este portal web y entregando paquetes físicos para apoyar a su estudiante o estudiantes.

    Los estudiantes también pueden encontrar información de sus maestros sobre los recursos específicos de la clase para su revisión y cómo mantenerse al día durante el cierre de la escuela.

    Por favor, consulte este portal web regularmente. Estaremos actualizando y agregando recursos adicionales a medida que estén disponibles.

    Como escuela, recomendamos que los padres y los estudiantes trabajen juntos para desarrollar un horario diario sencillo de trabajo/juego o rutina.

    Quiero agradecer a todos los padres, estudiantes y miembros de la comunidad por su apoyo durante este momento difícil.

    El siguiente contenido está organizado por los profesores  con sus recomendaciones, seguido de una lista completa derecursos.

    Teacher Recommendations

    Elementary Teachers

    Kindergarten, Ms. Fontenot

    Ms. Fontenot recommends her students complete at least one math and one reading worksheet provided in packets daily, Monday-Thursday. If able, students should also spend at least 20 minutes daily on either IXL or Epic to practice math and reading skills.

    Please remember that each student normally has three 20-30 minute outside recess breaks throughout the day. We also have two opportunities daily for students to have 20 minutes of indoor play. Play is an important part of growing your child’s language, social/emotional, problem-solving, and fine and gross motor skills.

    Some resources for this include:

    • IXL for Math and Reading (Mrs. Fontenot can track student progress. This also has students practice skills by their individual level).
    • Epic for Reading (Mrs. Fontenot will assign books to practice reading skills such as short and long vowels).
    • Class Dojo (Video lessons and bedtime stories).
    • Teach Your Monster to Read (Phonics)

    Free Second Step and Committee for Children Resources for Educators and Families to Use During School Closures

    • Free Social-Emotional Learning Activities: There are a number of Second Step activities freely available online for children ages 5–13. Many of these are adaptable for remote learning or for families to do at home with their children.
    • Second Step Social-Emotional Passport: The Second Step SEL Passport is a great SEL reinforcement activity for students to do at home. Integrate this activity into your remote-learning plan or share it with families as a fun resource.
    • The Imagine Neighborhood: This new podcast for families is designed to help children and grown-ups practice their social-emotional skills. Each episode tells a story that’s amazing, fantastical, and maybe a little bananas, while it tackles the big feelings that come with growing up.
    • Mind Yeti®: Fifteen of our mindfulness program sessions are now available for anyone to use, no experience necessary! Designed for educators and families to do alongside children, or for older children to do on their own, Mind Yeti provides a great way for everyone to practice mindfulness during this difficult time.
    • Little Children, Big Challenges: Committee for Children and Sesame Street have partnered to create a collection of resources for young children facing significant challenges. These materials, aimed at building children’s resilience, may be useful for educators and families.
    • Captain Compassion®: Here, children can find games, comics, and activities they can do on their own, or with their families, to learn about how they can help stop bullying.
    • Hot Chocolate Talk: A resource to help families talk with their children about child sexual abuse. Families may be spending a lot more time together during school closures, which makes this an opportune time to have these difficult but very important conversations.
    • ParenTeen Connect: For families with older children, this resource provides an online experience they can share together. It’s loaded with videos, resources, and useful advice to help teens and the adults in their lives address hot-button topics.
    • SEL Posters: Put up a few visual reminders to help your kids name their feelings and learn how to manage them, too!
