Blytheville Primary School

AMI Days 11-15 Assignments (April 6-10, 2020)

Dear Primary Families,

We might not be there with our students physically, but we're always there for you. This distance we feel and have is temporary, but our love for our students is forever. We miss you Chickasaws!


This newsletter has an article that I hope you find helpful, additional activities beyond AMI, and our AMI packets for this week. In an effort to make it easier, each grade level just has one link (download) that contains the whole week's worth of learning activities.


If you need last week's AMI packets, click HERE to be taken that newsletter.


Also, teachers will not be available on April 10, since it is Good Friday.


----------------------------


Teachers will be available from 9:00 AM to 3:00 PM by email if you have any questions. If a teacher does not respond to your email that day, please, send me an email.


Principal Email: jwilson@blythevilleschools.net


We anticipate that we will learn lessons along the way and make necessary adjustments to improve our AMI plan to best meet the needs of our students. We welcome your feedback and invite you to share information with us about how it is working for your family. If you have further questions, feel free to reach out to me directly.


You can reach me through text and voicemail through this number: (870) 576-9425. You can also reach me by leaving a voicemail at the school number: (870) 763-6916 ext 2052.


Thank you for your partnership,

Jana Wilson

Handling Your Kid’s Disappointment When Everything Is Canceled

It is a tough time for adults in many ways, and it is a tough time for our kids as well. How do we help our kids cope with the disappointment of cancelled events or places closed? I hope this article helps you out.


------


"When I told my 10-year-old daughter that her elementary school would be shutting down for two weeks, she didn’t seem to mind. But after Lexi had time to process the news and realized a friend’s birthday party, a dance competition and the “Jump Rope for Heart” fund-raiser at school were also looped into the cancellation list, I was met with tears and a string of questions, both of which caught me off-guard.


With the new coronavirus leading to school closures and event cancellations across the country, parents are getting mixed reactions from their kids that range from joy over extra time off to confusion and sadness over missing a highly anticipated event — and even fear of the unknown.


Whether they’re forced to skip a musical performance, a tryout for a spring sport, a visit to their grandparents or a family vacation, simply telling children that disappointment is a part of life doesn’t cut it. In fact, breaking this news may also spark anxiety in parents.


So how can parents help kids process their disappointment? I asked a few experts for their advice.
