My students are really excited to learn in a new way online using a platform that we used in the classroom-Seesaw. They go on every day and complete Number Corner, math, and literacy activities. I always post at least one fun activity a week. For example, for National Superhero Day, they got to take their picture and turn themselves into a superhero. They are loving virtual learning and are doing their best with what their families are able to afford to buy with many losing much of their income.
My Super Readers and Super Writers don't have the supplies at home to read and write.
I sent home some paper, pencils, and books when we left school for Spring Break not knowing they we wouldn't be back together for the rest of the school year. They lack the materials to write stories, draw pictures, and read new books throughout the week. They also don't have fun learning games to play at home. While in school, I taught them to approach learning with a Growth Mindset and they are doing that every day! I would love for them to have materials to help them continue to grow their brains!
These materials are going to give my students materials that they don't have at home to write stories. Right now they are using whatever paper that they can find around the house, which is very limited. Having developmentally appropriate lined paper will give them the opportunity to write books just like they were in the classroom.
My students love to write like Super Writers!
The crayons, pencils, and erasers will make this possible. The folders will give them a place to keep all of their writing in a way that is similar to how we kept them in the classroom.
