Elementary Distance Learning Update
We are Proud of you Medford Elementary Families!
Question 1: How long should "Distance Learning" last each day?
- Lessons in PreK-2 are designed to take about 15-20 minutes per subject or about 1 1/2 to 2 hours per day.
- Lessons in 3-6 are designed to take between 20- 30 minutes per subject or about 2 to 2 1/2 hours per day.
- Special area classes would be above and beyond this and are intended to enrich your child's week.
We do still encourage you to keep your daily reading habits of 20 minutes per day as we encouraged during the school year if you are able. If you need more reading content, please reach out to your child's teacher. They might have some digital resources that are accessible via the devices students use for lessons.
Question 2: What can we do if we get everything done?
Some families have asked for more ideas in supporting their child with additional, enrichment activities during this distance learning. There are many resources out there, but it can be overwhelming when trying to find something of quality.
One website I would like to share with you is "Common Sense Media" resources. Please check out the link below to find some great Distance Learning Resources if you would like more opportunities beyond what has been provided.
Best wishes for a GREAT week ahead of Distance Learning!
Our lessons and opportunities for learning all are intended to provide your child as much normalcy for school time as we can. We know this will look different in every home for every family. Please continue to communicate with me (firstname.lastname@example.org) or your child's teacher if you would like to visit about ideas. We are here for you and can help to make adjustments to lessons as well.
WHAT WILL KINDERGARTEN REGISTRATION LOOK LIKE?
Kindergarten registration will now take place on Monday April 13th and Tuesday April 14th from 8:00am to 5:00pm. Parents are invited to drop off their child's kindergarten registration packets inside the Medford Elementary entrance. There will be a bin provided marked "Kindergarten Registrations" and the packets may be deposited inside. Any questions or concerns please email Shelley Fitzgerald, elementary secretary at email@example.com. Thank You
