Learn By Doing
Families: Start slow, choose at least one activity to do with your child/family.
Remember that these activities are only suggestions and that you can add, remove, or change anything as it better fits your family’s needs.
WEEKLY HOME LEARNING PLAN
Families: Start slow! Choose one or more activities to do with your child/family as you are able. Please email photos of completed work to me if you are able. Remember that these activities are only suggestions and that you can add, remove, or change anything as it better fits your family’s needs.
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)
· Check your email to get your child set up for online learning through FRESHGRADE; if you have any questions, please contact your teacher through email. Please log on and see if you can access the different items on your child’s portfolio, checking for class announcements, and posting a silly picture for your teacher (me!) to see.
