Hello! I am Mrs. Gaul and I am one of the learning support teachers for 4th grade at Brandywine Heights Intermediate School. I am a graduate of Temple University with a dual degree in Elementary Education and Special Education. I received my Master’s of Education with a concentration in Reading from East Stroudsburg University. I was a learning support teacher in the Stroudsburg Area School District for 5 years before leaving to start a family. I enjoy spending time with my family, reading and vacationing on Long Beach Island in the summer. I have two sons, Jack who is 16, Ross who is 12, and a chocolate lab named Molly.
We are moving into our virtual learning plan and I hope you are continuing to stay safe and healthy. Make sure you check your teacher’s Google Classroom for any assignments for reading, math, science, and social studies that need to be completed. I have included an example of schedule for you to follow if you would like, however, if there is another schedule that works better for you, please use that. The assignments will be posted on Monday morning and need to be completed by Sunday at 6:00 PM. If you have any questions, my office hours are from 10:00-2:00 Monday-Thursday and 12:00-2:00 on Friday. Please email me and I will get back to you quickly. Make sure you continue to log onto Read 180 or System 44 for 15-20 minutes each day. The site is open from 7:00 AM-9:00 PM. Please continue to stay healthy and get outside for some fresh air throughout the day.
Here are some other resources you may want to check out:
The kids can email me too. I promise I will respond! I’d love to see some pictures. I’m really missing my class.
As always, if I can help out in any way, just send me an email. firstname.lastname@example.org
Please let the kids know I am missing them, and thinking of them every day!
Here is a message and some activities to do at home from Mrs. DeLong:
I have some fun activities and websites that might be useful to help maintain your occupational therapy skills that you have worked so hard on this year.
Suggested activities are:
For handwriting: remind your child to use the handwriting rules, such as letters on the line, spaces between words and correct letter size. Have your child write a shopping list or have your child grade your handwriting!
Mazes, dot-to-dots, ½ drawn pictures, step-by-step drawings, lego patterns, K’nex, puzzles, hidden pictures, spot the difference, board games ( such as connect 4, battleship, lite brite, Uno, etc )
Other activities might include preparing a simple recipe or a scavenger hunt in the house
Suggested websites that have online and printable activities:
These activities are all optional. Please tell your children I said “Hi” and do not hesitate to reach me if you have any questions.
