Art:

I will posting art activities that you can do at home over the shut down. I will attempt to provide activities that can be done with a minimum of supplies but can still allow students to keep their creative minds working with visual arts exercises while at home. 

Below is a PDF of a variety of drawing activities students can do at home. For some, specific grade levels are suggested, but most are adaptable. I hope you find some of these inspiring!

While the schools are closed and our students are at home it is still important for them to get daily exercise and movement. All of our students are aware of daily exercises that we do in the gym like scissor kicks,ski jumpers, jumping jacks,mountain climbers, and shoulder touches. These are all activities that can be done in your home and as part of a daily routine. Other activities that can be done at home include basic yoga, movement activities on GoNoodle, exercise videos designed for kids on you tube(see links below), going for walk (with parental guidance), and jumping rope(if you have a rope).

outu.be/L_A_HjHZxfIThe following resources were shared by the district administration team to support parents in discussing COVID-19 with their children. Please click on the links below to review these documents.

Talking to Children about COVID-19

Helping Children Cope with Stress due to the COVID-19 Outbreak

As we have done in the past, when other flu related illness was a concern, it is important to remind everyone that the CDC recommends following these simple but very effective methods to limit the spread of respiratory diseases:  

  • Always thoroughly wash hands for at least 20 seconds.
  • When soap and water is not available, use hand sanitizer to wash hands. 
  • Cover your nose and mouth with a tissue or cloth when sneezing and/or coughing.
  • Stay home when you are sick. (This is a good habit to follow for any illness but even more important given the unknowns surrounding  COVID-19)
  • CDC does not recommend that people who are well wear a facemask to protect themselves from respiratory diseases, including COVID-19.
  • Facemasks should be used by people who show symptoms of COVID-19 to help prevent the spread of the disease to others. 

Enrichment:

With the sudden closure of school, I am utilizing google classroom for all classwork. Please check due dates. https://classroom.google.com/h. I encourage practicing keyboarding, Dance Mat typing-https://toybox.tools.bbc.co.uk/activities/id/activity-dance-mat-typing/exitGameUrl/https%3A%2F%2Fwww.bbc.co.uk%2Fguides%2Fz3c6tfrfor the little students, typing.com through clever for the older students.

I will have assignments and activities posted through google classroom for each of the grade levels.  My blog will include all access codes as needed. If there are any questions please don’t hesitate to ask.
