I want to thank you for your patience. I also want to thank you for your messages, pictures and video’s I have received of your little ones. I have SO enjoyed connecting with them. Below I have a lot of important information for the launch of our at home learning! Please take the time to read this information carefully.
We are excited to launch our first week of at-home learning on Monday March 30th! You will find attached to this email a copy of our school's "Wholistic Approach to Student Learning". Please refer to this document as it outlines our school's vision for continued learning from home.
As a Grade 1 French Immersion team, M. Braun, Mme Bryant and myself will be working together to facilitate your child's learning moving forward. Through our Grade 1 team website, we will be providing 5 hours of student learning material each week, focusing on literacy and numeracy. This platform will be our hub for online learning resources.
These lessons will be organized into 5 literacy and numeracy blocks. You can do one literacy and numeracy lesson each day or organize them in a way that best suits your family! Our greatest hope is that you are able to use our plans as building blocks to create routines that work for your child and family.
For the week of March 30 - April 3, our focus will be on orienting you and your child on the website's format, the delivery of content, and accessing online resources. Each day (or however you choose to access lessons), there will be a tutorial video explaining the website as well as various online resources that we will be using in the coming weeks.
On Monday, please access our website at https://frenchgrade1team.schoolsites.ca/ and click on the Agnes Davidson tab at the top of the page. From this page, you and your child can watch our welcome back video and follow the instructions to access weekly lessons. Feel free to explore the website and check out our teacher blogs and parent information pages. The first lesson on Monday is a comprehensive tutorial video explaining how to navigate our new website.
I will be connecting with all of you next week either by phone or ZOOM to discuss the following:
- Navigating the website
- A weekly time to connect with your child
- Any concerns or feedback you may have
All posts and updated information will be posted on Agnes Davidson School Website today onward. Please refer to our Grade one French site as well as the AD website for any other information
