Please aim for quality rather than quantity in terms of work. Especially at the beginning, it is important to support students emotionally, as this is new and different. Please be mindful of how big of a change this is.
- Check e-mail at least twice a day and respond in a timely manner.
- Each day, teachers should connect with students through video in some way. This can either be a recorded video or a live video, but seeing you will provide a lot of comfort to your students. Videos should be posted by 9 am daily.
- Teachers should plan to have some type of daily availability to students/parents to answer questions and/or provide assistance.
- Do not assign work that requires the downloading or printing of work, as this may not be possible in some homes.
Additionally preschool teachers will consider the following ideas, which include but are not limited to:
Scheduling a story that is read to students;
A morning circle time activity; and
Individual sessions with parents and students.
In addition, keeping track of IEP minutes is a critical component of what must occur.
