After so many months virtually, it is finally time to get back into the classroom! I am so looking forward to being back in the classroom with my students again. Although the environment might look a little different with many protocols and protections put into place, learning and teaching will still go on! I know there are some concerns and questions, but please do not hesitate to reach out to me. If I do not know the answer to a question, I will immediately ask Ms. Linda, Ms. Bettyann, or Dr. Beams and get back to you ASAP!
Below is a checklist of materials that would really help the classroom and benefit your child to ensure that students do not share materials. Materials and supplies will be put into their own cubby area or desk area.
-Change of clothes (socks, pants, shirt, underwear)
-Pull ups/Wipes (only if needed)
-Hand sanitizer (only for your child, it will not be shared. And please be aware that most hand sanitizers are not safe for your child according to the CDC website. Please look for the following active ingredients: Ethyl Alcohol at 60— 95%, or Isopropyl Alcohol, or Isopropanol at 70— 91.3%)
-Mask (we will be practicing tolerating wearing the mask multiple times throughout the day.)
-Tissue boxes (only for your child, it will not be shared)
-Water/water bottles (prevent going to the water fountain)
-Beach towel (we will be outside for mask breaks and lessons, will be washed in hot water weekly at school)
-Extra baby wipes for the classroom are always welcome!
Please put your child’s name on everything! Again, thank you for your continued support the last couple of months. I look forward to continuing our open line of communication throughout the school year.
Love, Ms. Sam
To help keep brains fueled for learning, we will have a daily snack break.
Here are some appropriate snacks for school (Our school is a NUT-FREE school!):
- Bag of pretzels
- Veggie chips or veggie straws
- Goldfish crackers
- Graham crackers
- Cheez-It crackers
- Animal crackers
- Nutri-Grain bars
- Granola bars
In addition to sending a snack with your child each day, please send in additional snacks that can serve as reinforcer. I will store these snacks in the classroom to be used as part of reinforcing positive behaviors throughout the day.
- M &M
- Jelly Beans
- Gummy candy
Thank You, Ms. Sam
