Office Hours: 10:15 - 11:15 AM

If you would like to talk by phone, please email me and we can set up a time.

Hello families,

First and foremost, please know that I am here to help you through this strange and difficult time. We are faced with circumstances that are new and unfamiliar to all of us. School from home will probably look different for everyone and know that there is absolutly no pressure to do any of the suggested activities at all if they are adding even more stress to your life.

If you and you child would like to Facetime, send emails or videos, or just talk on the phone, please reach out! Seeing and hearing from each other can help us feel connected and provide a sense of normalicy. For this reason, I am also making Monday Morning Meeting videos which you can find under the first tab at the top of the page. If this is the only thing take from this webpage, that is absolutly fine.

If and when you are ready to explore some great accademic resources, I have designed this website to be as user-friendly as I could to provide you with the opportunity to exercise your reading, writing and math skills. There are also tabs for science, social studies, play and special areas.

In addition to utilizing this website, reading with and to your child every night is the best thing you can do for his/her reading development, while also getting some cozy, bonding time together.

Additional weekly suggestions/activities will be communicated through email and I will post videos under the respective tabs here as well. (For example, the Day 1 and Day 2 of Writing a 3-Page Personal Narrative videos are under the writing tab.)

I am hyper-linking my three favorite sites below as a great starting place. If possible, visiting the sites below for about 40 minutes a week, while we are learning from home, would be ideal.
