Kindergarten News ~ April 30, 2020
We have just completed week 6 of remote learning (not including the week we were off for Spring Break)! I cannot believe it has been that long already!
Since returning from Spring Break, I have been doing Video Lessons/Morning Meetings on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays with live Zoom Meetings on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Next week you will see multiple videos on Monday: a Morning Meeting, a Language Arts Lesson and a Math Lesson. This breaks up the day and your child can watch the videos separately before beginning their Seesaw activities for the day as well.These videos will be available Monday morning!
Thank you to everyone who is working hard and completing the activities each day. I know every home has different circumstances and time availability to help your child and I appreciate your efforts! Please try to have your child complete at least the Math activity for the day and the sight word activity for the day, along with the read aloud. These are the core concepts we want the students to have mastered before beginning to test for report cards. I have added voice directions to most of the activities for next week as well to allow your child to have a little more independence on Seesaw.
New next week is the Hail Mary portion on Seesaw. I will lead the children in the Hail Mary during my Morning Meeting video and your child should try to practice the Hail Mary each day. If they think they have mastered it, they should upload or take a video of themselves saying the Hail Mary in their Seesaw Journal so I can see it. As I will mention, this activity will be available everyday in Seesaw, but the children do not need to add a video everyday!
A BIG THANK YOU to the students and families who started us off with Virtual Star Student and Virtual Brynn Bear!! You both did a fantastic job and I can't wait to see our new Star Student and Brynn Bear shares next week!
Reminder: tomorrow, Friday, May 1, 2020, is a non-attendance day for teacher professional development! You will not have new Seesaw activities or specials activities to do tomorrow!
Finally, please continue to send me photos of our child doing their remote learning at home! I will be using these for our Yearbook! And don't forget to send me your child's Favorite Thing About Kindergarten Video!!
Thank you and I hope you are able to enjoy the beautiful weather that is forecast for this weekend!! :)
