My outgoing and energetic 22 second graders are now being taught remotely at their homes. Initially, it was complete panic and sheer frightening phone calls that I was receiving from parents who didn't know what to do or think. After the first couple of weeks, our school was able to start issuing out technology to families. We weren't able to do 1 to 1 technology, but at least 1 piece of technology per household was issued. The next issue we dealt with was getting those families wi-fi which we did by getting some local companies go out to get that set up or get them hot spots.
Even though It's been an uncertain and scary time, most importantly I feel that with a lot of daily communication my parents and students have begun to feel a little more assured that everything is going to be alright.
I chose supplies that will help keep my students not only busy, but also learning. I think it's important that they have things to do that will get them to think and process rather than just stuck in front of a screen for hours and hours.
I've included good old fashioned Play-Doh, paint, paper, chalk, and arts and crafts supplies for them to keep themselves entertained and creative!
My hope is that these supplies will not only last through the rest of this school year, but through their summer as well.
Unfortunately, we just don't know how long this is going to last and my hope is to give them a bit of happiness during this uncertain time.
