Home Learning Resources
To support families during this challenging time amidst the COVID-19 coronavirus outbreak, we have compiled a list of resources to continue the process of home learning. This list will expand in the coming weeks. It was intentionally limited this first week as families adjust to the new schedule. We will continue to update resources frequently for all grade levels and student service programs. Our teaching and learning staff will continue to add resources and information weekly, as well as information about how these resources can be used.
Student Learning During the Closure
Our commitment to our students is to provide equity and to ensure that all students have an equal chance at success during the closure. We will support student learning during the closure by providing resources presented in multiple forms. Our first goal is to provide some general resources for parents to use with their children. These are listed below. Our second goal is to provide more robust learning activities developed by our teachers. This will occur over the next few weeks and will be posted here
Online Learning Resources
To support at-home learning we have compiled a list of online resources that will provide students with practice using instructional digital tools. We recognize the importance of a healthy balance of screen time for our students. To this end we are also compiling non-digital resources for students and families. In addition, we encourage families to engage in screen-free family time including outdoor activities and family board game nights. This learning does not replace direct teacher instruction but rather reinforces skills that have already been taught in the classroom.
Setting Daily Routines
We realize the challenges involved with providing learning experiences at home for your children. One thing that can help is to setup daily schedules. As stated above, we are working to make sure that home learning provides a healthy balance of screen time and doesn't rely solely on online options. With these things in mind, we are adding some sample daily schedules that can allow you to mix online and offline opportunities. See more on this page.
