Welcome back - Update on Student Learning
I hope you have had some time to rest and have some family time over our break.
As I am sure you are aware, there have been many changes as far as how school for your child will look over the next few weeks. Since there is a strong need for social distancing, I have been working on ways to support your child's learning from home. I want to ensure that each of my students feels connected and engaged in their learning and continues to build relationships with myself and their peers.
I cannot imagine how difficult this sudden series of events has been for each of you. I do understand that this time for our children is exceptionally challenging, and I hope that your child is not feeling too anxious.
I will be working to provide online learning opportunities for all of my students who have access to technology. For those of my students who cannot rely on regular access to the internet/technology, I will be creating individual solutions based on their needs. I have been in touch with all of you and I am working on shifting our learning from the classroom setting to your child's home.
This webpage will be one of the places where I will be providing resources for you to help your child and links to assignments. The format of student work may look very different. I am also hoping that all students will be able to have access to my google classroom, and they all should know already how to access it. We will also be using Discovery Education, which all students also have access to and know how to use. As well, I am contemplating using Zoom for small meetings with groups of kids. Please keep your eyes open for a tutorial on that!
Thank you for your patience as I explore what will work best for each student. I do not expect each child to spend hours at their computer but am hoping to build in opportunities for online chatting with me, posting instructional videos, and providing project choices so that your child is able to choose some of what they will be working on. This will take time, and we will be starting slowly, beginning next week.
If you click on the Parent News tab at the top, I will be posting several google docs with information on basic learning that can happen in your home. Please check the parent tab to access these documents! I will also be posting them to your child's google classroom, which I will invite you to as well. Please check your emails regularly as I will be corresponding to you all on a regular basis!
Thank you so much for your support.
In an effort to keep in touch with all of you as easily as possible, it would be great if you could download the Remind App so that we can be in touch easily!
I’m looking forward to using Remind to share updates, notes, and more. Thanks for joining!
