Grade 4/5Mr. Schultz
Learn By Doing
Families: Start slow, choose at least one activity to do with your child/family.
As explained in the email, if your child is able to participate online you may wish to spend some time exploring the EPIC website with your child. If you are requiring devices that information has been relayed to the school. NOTE: the use of EPIC is optional. If it is too difficult at this time please opt out as there are other activities your child can participate in.
Families: Start slow, choose at least one activity to do with your child/family. Stay safe, make sure to wash hands multiply times throughout the day. If students/guardians need assistance feel free to email me anytime. Please look at the Weekly Jobs located at the bottom of the last page. This section will let the students and parents know what is due the upcoming week(s).
We will be having our first face to face group meeting on
6th, 2020 at 11:30 AM.
Start slow with creating a new learning relationship with your child, they are just as nervous as you are. Remember teachers spend the first weeks of school building this new trust before they start teaching curriculum. You may discover mixed emotions of happiness, frustration, confusion and even anger. This is normal and it shows how much you care about what you are doing. Teaching is a passion, not a job, and we are so very sad that we cannot be with your child right now.
Email For Questions
You have been given a gift of time with your child. There are no expectations besides loving and nurturing your child. We will be here if you have questions or concerns.
Trust your gut, adapt (change) the learning goals to meet your child’s needs. Teachers do this with your child every day. Teaching is about the learning process, not just what the end product is. Allow and encourage mistakes both for your child and yourself.
Take this opportunity to teach your child some life skills like cooking and household chores. Allow creativity and passion projects to happen. Learn something you always wanted to learn alongside your child.
Remember that PLAY is extremely important to your child at this time. Many of the activities we do at school are play-based because this is the best way for your child to learn new concepts. Allow breaks of free play during the day as well.
Further Your Learning Online (Optional)
If students would like extra math work, I have signed us up for IXL. IXL is a great Math and LA site used to educate students online. I have created usernames and passwords for students. If you are wanting additional work, please email me and we can arrange a time to set standards and goals for the site.
