Self-Management for Elementary Students

Ways to Help Students Improve Self-Management Skills in At-Home Learning

  1. Create a Daily Schedule. Now that kids are learning remotely, the time is ripe for getting them acclimated to a daily routine that gives them voice and choice over how their day is spent
  2. Use a Weekly Schedule
  3. Stick to Deadlines

Virtual Assessments during Distance Learning

The purpose of assessments is for your child's teacher to be able know what the student's current level of performance is. Running records, math assessments, reading assessments, sight words and writing tasks are some of the tests or assessments that will be assigned.

As hard as it may be, PLEASE let your child complete these tasks independently. By doing so, it will give us an accurate picture of your child's current level of performance and will enable us to assign work that is appropriate to that performance level.

Thank you!
