Week 6: Distance Learning, April 27th – May 1st, 2020

Dear KGL Families,

Welcome to our last week of Distance Learning. Families have been working very hard these past 5 weeks and there is only one week left to go. In preparation for our closing, I’d like to ask students to think about some of the memories they’ve had from this school year, their favorite memories. We will be sharing these in our ‘live’ Google Meets this week. We will also be opening up an additional ‘recess’ for Friday afternoon from 2:00-2:30pm. This will give children in KGL an opportunity to say ‘Goodbye’.

Preparing for KGL ‘live’ Google Meets

For this week’s ‘live’ Google Meet on Tuesday we will be asking children to share their best memories from the school year.

Week 3: Distant Learning, April 6-10, 2020

Dear KGL Families,

Welcome to week 3 of Distant Learning. It’s been great to see all the Seesaw posts coming through and to see how well the children are doing.

Tech information can be addressed to Cary Hart at: distance.learning@aas.ru

‘Live’ Google Meet Session/s:

This Tuesday, tomorrow, children will be asked what their favorite sports team is OR their favorite sport, and why? Optional: wearing a special jersey or you can save this for Thursday or Friday and make a Seesaw posting.

Thursday morning, more than likely, I will be in transit. Due to this reason we will not have a ‘live’ Google Meet session but a pre-recorded session instead. If this changes I will be sure to let you know.

Dear KGL Families,

Tomorrow will be our First Day of Distance Learning.

Hope you are all well. This is a reminder that the main source of Distant Learning for Kindergarten information will be from the Kindergarten Main Page Blog. This information will be posted soon. Each morning will begin with a Morning Message from your own class. On Monday there is a brief recorded message welcoming KGL students before we start the Distance Learning day. Tuesday and Thursday we will have scheduled times to meet with children in small groups to have a ‘Google Meet’ Morning Meeting. (Schedule & Groupings Below) For Tuesday’s Google Meet, the children, Ms. Elena and I have put some signals and expectations in place just as we would in our classroom. Please review these expectations with your child. We hope this will help our ‘Google Meet’ sessions to go more smoothly.

Tuesday & Thursday Morning ‘Google Meet’ Groups for this week:

****Your child must be logged in to Google Chrome with their AAS user name and password. (If you do not remember your child’s email and login information then go to the Language Arts Distance Learning Bag. Inside you will find a paper that is folded in half with a penguin on the front of it. Open up this paper and you will find you child’s email address and login information.)

9:00 am – Group1: Anastasia, Alisher, Genji, Sandra S. Sandra K.

9:20 am – Group 2: Maddalena, Charlotte, Elliot, Victor

Google Meet Expectations: These are our Google Meet Signals

Remember to be respectful. If there is noise in the background you can put your screen on mute. We also need to remember to take turns. Hopefully our signals will help. 🙂
