Just touching base with my super little class and hoping that this message finds everyone well. I know that a lot of you might be feeling a little uneasy in these uncertain time, I know I am! But I hope the children are in good form and not picking up on our anxiety.
So, I will be making every effort to support you and the children as much as possible. I am stuck at home with my own two girls, aged 6 and 8, so I feel your fear! 😅 I want to get your feedback on how you would like me to support you so I'm going to ask you to have a think about a few ways in which we can communicate through this blog and maybe email. We all need to ease into this new reality, in order to avoid adding to the stress. So here are a few ideas that could work for you and me.
- Each week I could set the activities for the week ahead
- I could make up some online videos tutorials and post them here, to support writing, maths and Irish
- I could post the lessons at the start of the week and give you time to complete them over Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday?
- You could share the work with me through email and I could give feedback on a Thursday?
I very much understand that everyones situation is different and while it may be difficult for you to keep routine with a lot going on, I honestly believe that routine will be what keeps the children feeling well.
