Ms. Gunther's Pre-K 4's Page

Welcome to 1/2 Day and Full Day Pre-K 4 with Ms. Gunther! I'm so excited to be with you this year as you continue to learn and grow. In preschool we work hard, though our form of work might look like play to everyone else. While we play, we are working on our social/ emotional development, language, math, science, social studies, and religion! Along with playing, we also spend time creating with paints, crayons, markers, paper, and glue. Playing is hard work in preschool! 



In the event we pivot to remote learning, one app we will be relaying on to provide daily activities will be Seesaw. 
During class I have already introduced the app to the students, and they are familiar with logging in, finding the assigned activities, as well as submitting their work. Some have caught on quicker than others, and I wish we had more time to get them all adjusted. With that being said, some will probably need some guidance getting started at home. 
All students will receive a QR code for easy login access at home. The paper will include directions on how to set it up.
Children will be able to do the daily assigned activities and submit them. If an activity isn't completed it will remain in their to do list. Each day new activities will be provided. The activities will be centered around the letter of the week, the math concept of the month, and gross motor videos to keep their bodies active while also focusing on letters or numbers.  
When your child submits their work, it will be posted to their seesaw journal, where they will only see their work. 
Helpful Seesaw information can be found in the link above as well as the packet that is being put together. 
As both the students and I are getting acquainted with this app, any login or  tech questions can be answered by Mrs. Callahan [email protected] our Technology Resource Teacher.
