- Be On Time Everyday
- Be Prepared
- Be Respectful
- Complete All Assigned Work
Below you will find recommended practices for creating a successful learning environment at home during this period of Distance Learning.
- Creating a schedule at home is very important! With designated times for various activities during the day, it becomes easier to complete all that needs to be done! Setting bed times, meal times, and homework times help teach your child time management and help them to settle into a daily routine during the school week. Don't forget to schedule time for play too!
- Limiting distractions is another big one! In the comfort of our homes, we have many distractions. These include noise and also all our fun toys. To help minimize distractions, it helps to create a designated learning area in your home. You can ensure less distractions from noise by turning off the TV and music. Also, be sure that if your child has siblings they know to leave each other alone during school time so that your child can focus on their learning.
- Stay in contact with your teacher! You will be able to contact me through our class app "Seesaw Family." Please feel free to message me at anytime, however you may not receive a response if I am contacted outside of designated school hours. I will also have a number for you to call me directly which will be revealed at our first meeting! I will sending important updates via the Seesaw Family app so please make sure to check daily! Please join the app after I send you an invitation!!
