Welcome to Distance Learning!!
- Weekly learning activities will be shared with Parents for the upcoming week by Friday. This will help you prepare for the next week’s activities.
- Daily learning activities will be shared with student’s DAILY through their google docs. Please use the informative video to show your child how to find the activities.
- I will do my best to respond promptly to emails and/or text messages between the hours of 8:45 am – 3:30 pm on weekdays.
- Each day’s learning activities will be shared through Google Docs.
- I have formatted the schedule to match our daily classroom schedule for a sense of normalcy. However, feel free to complete the learning activities at any time of day that works best for your family.
- It will be important for an adult to act as a facilitator of learning. First grade students may need help navigating and understanding activities and new concepts, as well as real-time encouragement, feedback, and positive reinforcement.
- It will also be important for an adult to help students self-regulate when possible by encouraging them to try tough things in creative ways.
- Each day, students will have the opportunity to join me and any available students for a group video conference via Zoom starting at 8:45 am
- Please check out this link for Zoom expectations
- Please use the informative video to show you how to download and use Zoom on your child’s chromebook
- Reliable internet access and a device to access online materials (student chromebook recommended).
- General school supplies including paper, pencil, crayons, scissors, glue, etc.
Please note: I have done my best to plan learning activities that don’t require unique materials, but, if a lesson references something you do not have, feel free to adapt the activity as you are able. Some activities require printing. If you do not have access to a printer, feel free to adapt the activity as you see fit.
Tips for At-Home Learning:
- Choose a dedicated learning area in your home to gather general school supplies for ease of access.
- If your child (or you) get frustrated, take a break from the activity, and try again later.
- Consider planning intentional time for “off-screen” activities. Creative pursuits, physical challenges, exploring nature, reading, building, games, cooking, puzzles (and more!) will be just as important for your child’s overall well-being.
