"Bee" in the Know

Martha B. Day Weekly Update 10/9/20

What Would the Hybrid Model Look Like?

ReOpening Phase Two



  • Students will receive in-person or live Google Meet instruction for ELA and Math.
  • SS/Sci and Specials will be asynchronous at home
  • The two in-person days are half days (lunch is not served for half days)
  • Minimal, if any, changes to classes would occur



Example:

AM students will be in person on Monday and Tuesday while PM students are home virtually participating in the lesson that is being streamed from the classroom through Google Meet.


Wednesday AM students will have remote instruction from 8-10:20 and PM from 11:40-2:00. (This will match what we currently are doing)


PM students will be in person on Thursday and Friday while AM students are home virtually participating in the lesson that is being streamed from the classroom through Google Meet.

I-Ready Update

Thank you for facilitating I-Ready at home with your child(ren). Your support was deeply appreciated. The I-Ready Parent Report will be mailed out the week of October 13th.

"Bee" Mindful in Remote Learning with Ms. Faliveno

Encourage Movement


  • Kids need to move their bodies frequently throughout the day.
  • Allow time for exercise before your child is expected to focus on a distance learning task.
  • Some children are able to better focus on tasks when standing. Consider having your computer or tablet be on a raised surface so that your child can stand.
  • Movement is good for us grown-ups too. Put on some 90's music during break and have a dance-off with your kids!
