Is this ever a TIME or what?!
I’m not even sure what to say.
So many of you have reached out for guidance on what “distance learning” should look like. And more than anything, I want to help you! But, I am struggling with it all myself.
We are in our fourth week out. On the last day of school (March 16th), our kids took home packets that contained two weeks worth of work. So, we are “technically” only two weeks into distance learning.
I am making mistakes. I am overwhelmed. I am worried. I am crying (daily!!). And… I am teaching my own four kids every day.
I want to tell you that I have an answer. That I know just what to do… but I don’t.
I am right there with you in the trenches, trying to figure all this out via Zoom!!
Anyway, as of this week, I *think* I have a pretty decent plan and I will share it with you next week.
Until then, I am leaving you with the most BEAUTIFUL words written by fellow blogger, Jaime Ragsdale. Jaime is a relatively new blogger and I’ve watched the viral spread of her amazing post. Unfortunately, Jaime isn’t necessarily getting credit for essay, so please visit her page and give her some love!!
From Jaime’s blog www.altogethermostly.com:
Hear me out.
What if they enjoy the simple things, like their own backyard and sitting near a window in the quiet. What if they notice the birds and the dates the different flowers emerge, and the calming renewal of a gentle rain shower?
Helping Our Kids During Social Distancing
What if they learn the value of eating together as a family and finding the good to share in the small delights of the everyday?
What if they are ahead?
