Hello families!We are so proud of how well your children are learning independence during their online learning sessions. They are developing their ability to take turns, wait, turn their microphones off/on-they are demonstrating a great deal of patience with this new style of learning. Thank you for working so hard with them to get them to this point.
We have a few exciting updates to share with you. Mrs. Robertson has hired a new prep time teacher-Mrs. Koper-for A Days (Monday/Wednesday/alternating Fridays). This means that the children in our class will have an opportunity to meet with a prep teacher every day at 11:20 am. Mrs. Koper on A Days and Mrs. Gilbert on B Days.
Mrs. Koper will be joining us during part of our first meeting tomorrow morning so that you can meet her (the children will recognize her from being an occasional teacher at SCD) and will run her first zoom meeting tomorrow starting at 11:20 until about 11:40. We hope that the children will be able to pop in for this. Her Zoom Meeting ID is different from mine-it is: 599 659 3902. I am not sure if she has a password, but we can check during our first meeting tomorrow morning.
Due to the fact that the children will now have scheduled meetings with our prep teachers every day, we have decided to alter our schedule a little to accommodate the extra time online. We are going to shorten our last meeting of the day by 15-20 minutes from now on (ending at about 3:00 instead of 3:15). The children often look exhausted by this last block (and honestly, we are too!), so we hope that this will make it easier on them.
We welcome any feedback on our online learning program and hope that it is serving your children’s needs. You know your child best, please do what you feel is best for them. We are here to help in any way that we can.
K. Sadlon and T. Panico
