Back to School!
It is the beginning of September and everyone knows what that means: it’s time to get ready for another school year!
But, this year will look different so we wanted to devote this month’s blog post to families as they work to support their children’s learning ~ remotely or in-person. Below is a list of resources that we compiled to help you navigate the weeks and months ahead.
For the youngest e-learners, check out this video recording of “A Little Spot Learns Online” by Diane Alber. This book is recommended for children as young as age 4 and helps explain what to expect with online learning. Your child's school may be a little different but the book is a good starting place.
