My Students

Scholars have adapted well to distance learning due to Covid-19. Students are easily engaged and more connected when the class is working in unison using individual yet similar resources and supplies. Scholars need their own dry-erase lap boards, composition books, and writing utensils.

My Project

While scholars are settling in to learning new apps, online classes, and missing their classmates, students need tools to continue writing. Last week I challenged the students and their families to start a journal titled "Things I learned during/about Distance Learning". Scholars need journals to write down all of the interesting things and ways their families have had to adapt as well as their feeling about this new normal. Dry erase boards and markers support writing practice as well. First graders need as many opportunities to write and record these developmental stages in writing.
