My Students

Life has become very unpredictable! We recently learned that we will begin the upcoming school year 2020 -2021 in Distance Learning.

When schools were closed this past March because of the coronavirus pandemic, it was a challenge to transition from teaching in the classroom to teaching at home.

The only advantage at the time was that we knew our students and had built relationships with families.

We are now faced with building brand new relationships with students and families we do not know. It will be important to set the tone during the first couple of days of school. It will be crucial to have the proper tools accessible in order to keep students engaged in learning.

I know without a doubt my Kindergarten students will be eager and ready to learn!

My Project

Through the lens of the Zoom camera, I observed that the teacher's work space and student's work space should mirror each other during Distance Learning.

It was easier to teach a skill when all students, including myself had the same materials at hand.

The All About Letters Pocket Chart that I requested will be used to discuss the letter for the week. It will become part of the backdrop during Distance Learning.

The magnetic letters will be when teaching phonics during Language Arts whole group and small group. The twist and turn and word building boards can be used for making words.

The Math Tool Box has almost every manipulative that a Kindergarten student would need in order to master math skills. Teaching 3D shapes can be a difficult task. It helps when all students have hands-on manipulatives in order to describe the attributes of 3D shapes.

When schools closed in March, Teachers Pay Teachers became my best friend. There were a tremendous amount of resources that allowed me to create phenomenal lessons. Distance Learning became very interactive. My Kindergarten students were very engaged! Through the lens of the Zoom camera, I managed to keep my students still interested in school.
