Hi,

 

I already miss seeing all of you and it has only been a few days! Please take care of yourself and your family and know that I will be thinking of you - a lot! I look forward to all of us learning together again.

 

Here is a packet of activities to help you keep on learning even when you are not at school. Your classroom teacher put together another for you. If you meet in my room for a class, then I have included some practice sheets for that subject. I am attaching a suggested schedule, which is also available on my webpage with links to online learning. You don’t need internet access to complete the activities in the packet. I know that this can be overwhelming, but your families will help you decide what to do and what is best for your learning. I will either text, email or call after break to see how everyone is doing. Families can contact me either via email or by my cell phone. I would love to see pictures of how you are learning at home.

 

While the practice sheets are helpful, this is a great time to learn in so many different ways. If I had one suggestion it would be to read, read, read, read, read and read a little bit more. Math and reading is part of a lot of everyday things that your family already does at home like: cooking, doing laundry, planning to shop, as well as budgeting and counting money. Take the time to be creative and make challenges to use things you find around the house, build a fort, paint, create a scavenger hunt, dye eggs, write a play or make puppets. Don’t forget to keep moving. Stretch, do wall push ups, play catch, jump and get outside for some fresh air.

 

Most importantly, hug your family.

 

With love,
