COVID 19 is pretty scary to parents and children alike. I found this article that share some ideas on ways we can support our kids during this time.

Multi-language resource

This is a great little video by flocabulary on hand washing. It's really cute and kids (and parents) can enjoy watching it together.

Using the padlets

Almost all of the padlets found on my learning page allow for students to do an activity connected to the link on the padlet. For example, your child may click a link to listen to a story. Then your child will need to hit the back arrow to get back to the padlet to share his or her thoughts or answer questions posed on the padlet.

Extension Activities

Mrs. Creech, our Gifted Teacher, has created a wonderful web page full of fun activities for students to explore. Link here:
