My students message me on Class Dojo and Google Classroom every day telling me how much they miss school, their friends, and their classroom. They tell me that they wish they could go back and have Literacy centers, Math Centers, Swimming, Gym, Science, and so much more. Their parents message me the same type of e-mails, and it makes me feel like I want to supply more than what I have provided as virtual learning is our "new school".
My students and families seek support and resources.
They let me know what they need to best support their child as I send over their weekly assignments. I do the absolute best I can, but I know there is more. I want to be able to provide them with what they need, for my students are lifelong earners who have the desire to "grow their brains". They are courageous, driven, and excited 2nd graders, and now is the time, more than ever, that I want to support what they need to be successful while navigating through our "new normal" of virtual learning.
My students are eager to hop onto Google Meet with me and their classmates. They are eager to complete their Math, Reading, Writing, Science, and Social Studies assignments. They are eager to work hard and eager to please me and their parents.
I know a lot of basic school supplies may be scarce for some of my families.
Because of this, I want to put together small baggies with necessary school supply items such as books, pencils, crayons, erasers, and glue sticks, so they can better complete their at home learning assignments without having to stress about supplies.
