Welcome to the 2020-2021 school year.  Though this year looks very different from past years, I am confident we can work together to make it happen.  I will do my best to make this run as smoothly as I can for the best possible learning experince for you and your child.

    Each child received a binder.  This binder contains all the information and materials you will need for E-learning.  Please keep them in a safe spot, along with all materials.  We will be using them more than once. These materials will be used to complete assignments as well as during live instruction.  During E-learning you will have access to my google classroom.  Here is where I will post interactive activities, read alouds and assignments.  Google Classroom is a vital component to E-learning, as certain materials cannot be sent home and example projects will be posted.

    Your binder is organized by tabs. The first tab is circle.  This is where everything you will need to participate in circle time is provided.  You will also be able to participate live by attending one of two scheduled circles via Google Meets, or accessing your child’s daily circle via Google Classroom.  The next tabs are literacy, math, worksheets and IEP goals. Materials will be provided in these sections for your child to complete as you follow the lesson plan.  Each month new materials will be passed out for you to add into your child’s binder.

    Please send pictures/videos and comment via Google Classroom or email so we can track your child’s progress.
