Dear Mississippi Educator:
Lt. Gov. Delbert Hosemann has created three grade-appropriate activities for your consideration as you send home learning packets and online assignments for pre- K- 12 students this week. The assignments, which all center on communicating with lawmakers about how the current crisis is impacting students and families, include:
- A Think, Draw, Write! activity for pre- K through 3rd Grade students;
- Writing prompts for 4th through 6th Grade students; and
- Essay prompts for 7th through 12th Grade students.
These are optional and designed to be fun and thoughtful additions to any work you are already sending home. They are not intended to create additional work for you.
A parent/guardian permission slip is included. If your student completes one of these assignments, Lt. Gov. Hosemann’s office would love to feature it on social media and distribute it to state senators.
First names and schools only will be used when featuring completed assignments online. Only assignments that are accompanied by a permission slip signed by a parent or guardian will be featured.
From meal delivery to adjusting to this new way of teaching and learning, state leaders appreciate everything you are doing for children across Mississippi during this very difficult time. You may contact Lt. Gov. Hosemann at firstname.lastname@example.org
