DISTANCE LEARNING IS NOT HOMESCHOOLING
The goal of distance learning at this time is to provide learning activities for students so they are comforted by familiarity, engaged (not bored!), and continue practicing foundational skills in math, language arts, movement, science observation, and kindness. The emphasis is on strengthening the skills to which they have already been introduced. The distance learning should not be stressful for parent or student! We understand that K – 5 academics are not likely a top priority for many families. We offer learning opportunities. Do what you can. What we accomplish now is less class work to ‘make up’ in August.
For more activities for students that repeat or extend learning, feel free to use workbooks or activities from the many free educational sites now available. Excellent enrichment activities are additional movement, nature, cooking, and gardening.
Our school encourages students, families, and staff to eat healthy, sleep enough, exercise, have time in nature and unwind away from COVID news.
It is important to take care of yourself!
