Weekly Learning Plans

  • UPDATE: April 9thth, 2020 We have been working hard to create a schedule and define expectations as you prepare to re-engage in new learning starting on April 20th. Please review the April 20th to End of School Year Schedule carefully and discuss it as a family. We have also created a FAQ page for families with additional information on what learning will look like going forward. While these are new and uncharted times for your education, we as a staff are committed to providing an equitable, rich learning experience to the best of our abilities at this moment.

    IMS Online Educational Activities

    During school closures, we encourage your family to leverage our online learning subscriptions available in Self Service on your student’s iPad. We have many powerful tools available. Additionally, subject-specific activities and resources can be found in Schoology within the IMS Supplemental Learning course. Do not feel that your child needs to engage in all of them; pick what best matches your family's needs. If you need any support with these tools please email our team at ims.techs@mercerislandschools.org

Offline Time is Important - Remember To

    • Read every day: read for at least 20 minutes. Keep a reading log to track & celebrate!

    • Write every day: keep a journal, write letters, create stories, make cartoons, write a thank you note to a family member, friend, or teacher.

    • Exercise regularly: go for a walk together, jump, run, stretch.

    • Create art often: draw, paint, sculpt, build, arrange items beautifully.

    • Make music: sing along to your favorite songs, practice an instrument, make a playlist for friends.

    • Practice a new language: try to label items around your house in a new language, practice greetings and asking questions.

    • Talk: build oral language skills and social-emotional connections just by talking together about what you are doing, books you have read, what you notice around you, and how you are feeling.

    • Play: exercise your imagination, engage your family and laugh!
