Tips For Successful Remote Learning
A consistent daily routine, that includes thorough accountability by parents, is vital for success during remote learning.
- VISUALLY CONFIRM YOUR CHILD'S WORK IS COMPLETED DAILY.
- Taking your child's word for it, without visual confirmation, often leads to incomplete and missing work, the student falling behind, and frustration for the student, parent and teacher.
- Clicking "Turn in" in Google Classroom does NOT mean the assignment was actually completed.
- BE PATIENT, GRACIOUS, AND RESPECTFUL OF YOUR CHILD
- There is nothing easy about remote learning...for any of us involved. Exhibiting grace, allowing for mistakes, and offering encouraging words creates an environment that promotes focus and success and lessens stress.
- BE PATIENT, GRACIOUS AND RESPECTFUL OF YOUR CHILD'S TEACHER
- I don't know any other teachers that are enjoying the effects of the COVID pandemic on their career. Our heart's desire is to be in our classroom with our students having "normal school", but unfortunately that cannot be.
- Mistakes will be made, but we will work hard to correct them when they are brought to our attention.
- Kindness and patience are truly appreciated, as we are doing the best that we can with the decisions that are being made.
