My students are energetic, creative, thoughtful, and unique. They come to school each day ready to learn and play. They love hands-on learning and interacting with their peers.
Due to the pandemic, these children have yet to have a "normal" school year.
Many of them are still learning how to be in school and still need work on socializing and collaborating with other students. We love being back in the classroom this year! We are able to focus on those social skills that were missed during distance learning, through activities like community circle each morning and learning centers throughout the day.
The classroom rug is a special place in our classroom. We gather each morning for our community circle. It's a time where we greet each other, share with one another, play games together, wish our friends and family well, and so much more! These students have missed out on so much interaction with their peers over the past two years due to COVID-19, quarantines, and distance learning. The classroom rug is the perfect place to gather together and enjoy each other's company. Plus, so much learning occurs there as well! We read stories, play math games, and learn new skills everyday while sitting on the rug.
These students are eager to interact with their peers and need to learn how to work with others since they've yet to have a "normal" school year.
Our daily learning centers are the perfect time to make that happen! Students gather in groups of two to three to work on phonics skills, vocabulary and work work, writing, math, and more. The learning materials requested will be perfect additions to centers and will allow to students to share and work together in their academic work.
