Learn By Doing

Families: Start slow, choose at least one activity to do with your child/family.

Online Books

As explained in the email, if your child is able to participate online you may wish to spend some time exploring the EPIOC 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.

WEEKLY HOME LEARNING PLAN

A month in and I am seeing some amazing things happening at home! As always, choose activities to do with your child/family as you are able. Please post a picture or video of what you did on FreshGrade for me to see and celebrate. Remember that these activities are suggestions and that you can add, remove, or change anything as it better fits your family’s needs.

Weekly Notes

You are doing some amazing work! I miss being able to learn alongside with your children each day, and I am so appreciative of the glimpses I am getting of them learning at home through the pictures, videos, and emails that you are sharing with me. Keep them coming!

Continue to trust your gut, adapt (change, add, or remove) 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. Give yourself, and your child, some grace as you continue to develop your rhythm.

Continue to 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. There are some amazing gardening projects being started that have inspired me to strengthen my own (light) green thumb!

As always, 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 as trying to take some family time to enjoy some games together, such as cards, board games, or puzzles.

Email For Questions

As before, 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 as trying to take some family time to enjoy some games together, such as cards, board games, or puzzles.
Remember, you have been given a gift of time with your child. There are no expectations besides loving and nurturing your child. We will always be here if you have questions or concerns.
Take care,
Mrs. Schiewe
