My students are amazing! After a year and a half of virtual learning, they are back in the classroom and ready to learn. Woo-hoo!
We are making up for lost time as we embark on our educational journey.
My students did an amazing job with virtual learning. But now we're back in the classroom. Because of new COVID restrictions, I am not able to interact with my students the way I need to. They are back in the classroom after 18 months of being home. They are learning how to be students all over again. But they are present, they are focused, and they are eager to learn.
Many students come to school hungry every day. They leave their homes and come to the safety of our school. Sometimes the amount of food students get for breakfast isn't enough, sometimes students are too late for breakfast. Sometimes they're just hungry. Being able to give them a quick snack to have or to take home is meeting the basic needs of our students. We know as adults that if our basic needs aren't being met it becomes an impossible task to focus on other things in our lives. A hungry student is not learning because he/she is focused on their hunger. By being able to meet some of our students' basic needs will make room for learning and growth. We must meet the needs of the"whole child".
