     Things will not go perfectly, but we will work together and little by little.  Remember, all the lessons are OPTIONAL.  Do only what you can each day.  No new grades will be given this year.  Try to watch the recorded lesson and make one choice from the Choice Board each day.  Then, relax!  We're going to make it!  Our class motto this year is, "We are smart! We are strong! We are ready!"  We repeated it each day.  It's still true!

Todo no va a salir perfectamente, pero vamos a trabajar juntos poco a poco! Recuerden que todos de las lecciones son opcionales. Hagan lo que puedan cada dia. No nuevas notas van a ser dados este ano. Intenten de ver las lecciones grabados y hacer una seleccion de la Choice Board cada dia. Luego, descansen! Todo va a salir bien! Nuestra lema este ano es "Somos inteligentes! Somos Fuertes! Estamos listos!" Lo deciamos cada dia. Sigue siendo cierto!

What you can be doing at home while school is closed

      Math: Count something every day! on ST Math/ Jiji, Practice counting objects and counting to  100.Practice recognizing and writing numbers 0-20 and adding and subtracting story problems. For example:

    Writing: Write something every day! Practice writing stories that include a detailed picture and a sentence that  matches. Practice writing sight words.

Mindfulness: Go outside every day! 
This is a new situation for everyone. At times it can feel overwhelming, scary,and cause a lot of uncertainty. It is important for us to remember what we are blessed with and what is of value to us.  Keeping a journal during this time would be helpful for the children and for the adults.  Writing down how we are feeling each day and what we are grateful for can bring us peace and comfort.  Focusing on what we know and what we can control is so important right now.  

The following are sample activities to use at home

What have we already covered in class and what haven't we?

Below are the SOL guides for Kindergarten showing what standards we have already covered and which ones we haven't. The standards already covered would be great review work for your child! As the weeks progress, I will be posting videos and resources to hopefully cover the material we haven't yet covered. The material not covered is highlighted in  pink  in each document.
