Help me give my students soccer balls and sidewalk chalk. During the quarantine, many of my second-grade students are spending a lot of time inside their homes. These tools will help the second graders get outside and moving.
These days, due to Covid-19 my students are doing their learning from home.
Our physical school closed in the middle of March but my second graders and their families are persevering.
The majority of the second-grade families had no experience with online learning, and to be honest, neither did the teachers.
Together, we are learning to communicate across several different languages through apps like facetime, talking points, whats-app, and Zoom.
My second-grade students and their families are amazing! They are learning to navigate google classroom, join zoom meetings, submit work electronically and so much more. Technology has made it possible for us to continue learning together and keep our brains growing throughout the quarantine.
Sadly, my seven and eight year-old students are spending way too much time on their computers.
I would love to give these young students the tools they need to keep their bodies healthy.
Soccer balls are great for exercise and can be used independently as we continue with social distancing. Students can improve coordination by practicing dribbling and juggling their soccer balls in a small outdoor space. Sidewalk chalk is another way to get students out and moving. They can create drawings or even leave messages for friends and neighbors. Getting outside and playing is so important for the physical and mental health of these young students.
