Virtual Day 2/11

Dear Families, 

Tuesday, February 11th is a Virtual Day at STEM due to the delayed start for Douglas County School District. 

The following assignments are optional.  We understand that all families have different needs and we welcome you to modify as needed to fit your family.  Please email with any questions.  


  1. Biography Writing - I understand that your child’s books and notes may be at school.  If you are able, it would be great if you could conference with your child about their biography writing on Google Classroom.  The writing should include information about the famous person’s birth, childhood, education, important achievements and contributions, and death or current life.  Please help your child with spelling, punctuation, transition words and organization. Please leave the font as is, students can change colors and add pictures once it is printed out so they can copy the writing onto their page for the published book.  

OR - your child should be able to complete these literacy activities independently. 

  1. Read a book for 20 minutes and write a retell of your book in your WOW notebook. 
    1. Retell - characters, setting, problem, events, solution
  2. Raz Kids - Listen and read two books on the “Level Up” section and pass the quizzes.  You will need to re-read the book if you don’t pass the quiz.
