My Students

My classroom, like many others, is greatly affected by the coronavirus pandemic. We are no longer permitted to learn within the school building and are finding new and creative ways to teach and learn from home.

My students are resilient!

They never give up! They have jumped right into distance learning and I look forward to supporting them through this challenging time.

My Project

Can you help me connect with my students as they are at home learning during the coronavirus pandemic?

I plan to use the happy birthday bookmarks, pencils and scented markers to cheer up my students who can no longer celebrate their birthdays at school this year.

My students are amazing. They do not give up when faced with a challenge. They continue to work hard each day from home during this distance learning period. I am excited to provide my hardworking students with fun materials to connect with them during this time.

My students will use the scented markers to practice writing their spelling words at home!
