  4. Walker families,

    To facilitate continued learning at home during the school closure, we are making the following recommendations:

    Keep some form of schedule for your kids. 

    We know that keeping a predictable schedule helps children feel regulated (calm) and efficacious (capable).  While each home is different, and each family has different rhythms, we advise you to set aside time each day for learning, movement, and exploration.  A "learning time" should include reading, writing, and some math practice, at least. A "movement time" may include physical activity in or outdoors, depending on the CDC health recommendations. "Exploration time" might include enrichment learning activities that are age and grade appropriate (resources listed below.  For example, you may challenge your child to research a topic of their interest, collect and classify rocks, learn a new language, or practice typing skills. 

    Read with them, and have them read independently.

    We know that reading is the most powerful learning activity your children can participate in. Reading can happen in a variety of formats.  You can read to them.  You can read with them.  You can create quiet space and time for them to read on their own.  As their interest in reading and ability to read increase, their access to the world expands exponentially.  Their chances of experiencing success, this year and beyond, skyrocket as well!

    Remember that you are your child's first teacher.

    Think about it.  You taught your children how to say their first words. You explain how things work, and help them make sense of the world aroudn them.  You likely help them through tricky parts of their homework and push them to learn beyond what their teachers are even asking them to learn.  You have what it takes.  And now, at a time when schools are closed, you are pushed into that primary role.  But don't worry.  You have what it takes.  And we are here to support.  Our district has provided some key strategies that will increase your effectiveness, as you work with your children.  You can find SDUSD's High Impact Home Strategies HERE.

    Keep learning enjoyable. 

    All children are are born with natural curiousity and desire to know more.  You can keep learning enjoyable by 1) pushing them to learn about topics they are genuinely interested in.  2) Allowing for mulitple breaks during the learning time. 3) Providing lots of postive encouragement 4) Celebrating their accomplishments

    Leverage the many resources at your fingertips!

    Below we are sharing multiple resoures that you might explore with your children.  During this challenging time in our nation, many educational companies are making content free and accesible to all.  Becuase much of it requires internet connection to access, make sure that you have a connection.  If you, or someone you know, does not currently have internet service, call Spectrum at 1-844-488-8398 to receive free service.
