Help Me Rock Remote Learning!

Help me give my students the classroom they deserve from my home. When we left the building in March, we had no idea that we would not be returning for the remainder of the school year.

My Students

We are living through something that no one saw coming. Distance learning has been an adjustment for all of us. Over the last 6-7 weeks, both myself and my co-teacher and our students had to adjust in ways we never thought possible. At first, we all thought it was going to be impossible to teach remotely (especially kindergarten). However, our students and their parents have really stepped up to the plate and we have been amazed at how they have embraced this new way of learning.

These amazing kids are getting their work done and are attending live lessons multiple times a day.

They are doing so much and are living through such a scary time. I do not know how they are coping, but yet, they are.

Live lessons really help us connect more with our kids and make us feel like we are truly teaching.

My Project

These materials will help me transform my home into a classroom. Sadly, when we left the building in March we did not know we would not return for the remainder of the school year.

Without the proper supplies, remote teaching is that much more difficult.

Having an easel to do math problems on and chart paper to write the morning message on and to do writing on makes not only my job easier, but it makes the students feel a bit more normal in what is now the new normal for learning!
