I hope this update finds you all home, safe, and well. At this point, we are still following our district’s directive that I sent out last week. No school for two weeks, no lessons or assignments to send out. I hope you can make the most of all the free resources that I see popping up on social media like Facebook and Instagram. Many author’s are posting free activities, even setting up certain times to follow them for an activity.
Most importantly, through this time, I want to encourage you to just “be”. Be with your kids. Be their support, be there to comfort them when they don’t understand why they aren’t going to school. Be their life teacher. The life activities you do are more than enough during this time. Reading aloud, making dinner or baking together, organizing, walking together…these are all wonderful life lessons that take minimal effort and make a lasting impact.
Thank you for your updates about your children. I miss them. A lot. I hope that by the end of this week we will know more about the district’s future. Hang in there. We can do this.
