Remote Learning in the Early Years:Our team have worked hard to create a Program that balances both technology and paper based learning.Our Program consists of the following elements, and these are consistent in all Prep-2 classes:1. A Paper-Based Booklet: With handwriting, spelling, writing and maths tasks2. Take Home Readers 3. SeeSaw Family: For parents to communicate with the teacher4. SeeSaw Class: For students to access instructional videos5. Online Platforms: Reading Eggs, Essential Assessment and Wushka (online e-readers).6. Specialists Lessons: (French, PE, Art and Library) run lessons on a Wednesday during Remote learning.7. Weekly Webex Meetings: To stay connected with the teacher and classmates.The Program is now a well-oiled machine and works really well.Sample Spelling LessonSample Maths Lesson
