PreK-2 Remote Home Learning
Remote Teaching & Learning Expectations
Teaching is a process that occurs as much when students are not present as it does when they are. It is expected that staff will be online between the hours of 10:00 a.m. and 2:00 p.m. each remote school day. While many professional practices might take place in that window, staff is to prioritize communications with students and their families. This may be in the form of feedback, posting, commenting on posts, and answering questions from students, parents, and colleagues. Remaining time should be used for planning, organizing, collaborating with colleagues and virtual meetings with school leaders.
Primary K-2 Grades Overview
Primary grade students (kindergarten through second grade) will continue their independent reading. Primary students may show evidence of their learning through reading logs, reading notebooks, written reflections, and annotations as well as other portfolio-based demonstrations of mastery. Information, at-home learning opportunities, updates, and support for parents will be shared via teacher websites. Every-day mathematical opportunities, math talks, and math sense in the real world can be documented through math logs, and math talk reflections. Other acceptable learning platforms could be, but are not limited to, Seesaw, FlipGrid, etc. Again, initial access should be provided through teacher websites. The district will work with any and all students, and their families, to ensure they have access to all remote learning opportunities, whether they be digital or paper-based. Additionally, to the extent possible, we want all primary students engaged in purposeful play.
