 Our hope is to bridge learning by offering classes. Students can do this work from home on a phone, i-pad, Android tablet, or a computer.  Please share this information with your child or children.

All cellphones may download Google Classroom for free from the Play Store on each Android device or if you have an Apple device the App store (for i Phone or i Pad).

Follow your class schedule as closely as possible.  School will resume online daily and by this schedule.

Synchronous time is time where the teacher will have a live activity or discussion using Google Meet.

Asynchronous time is time that a student has to do the work on their own.

All other times on the schedule are times teachers or students may contact one another if students need more help with school.

However, understand that you may be able to access the assignments throughout the day for most classes. Activities can be spread throughout the day or paced as needed if the class has a recording.  Please contact your teacher often to clarify the work that is required.

Resources to help Parents with online Learning

 

Resources to help Parents with online Learning:

Dear Parents, 

We understand that online learning has come with challenges for you and your child.  These challenges are what make us more confident people.  Last year we experienced what online learning will be like. This guide can help us all make the best of our new distance learning environment.  

Components of online learning:

In order for distance learning to be successful we need 3 things to happen from home: Routines and Habits, Communication (between parents, teachers, and students), and Challenges.  

  1. Establish routines and expectations with your child: 

    1. Make sure they are out of bed

    2. Eat breakfast

    3. Brush their teeth

    4. Change out of pajamas

  2. Make a place to learn for your child:

  1. When students have an actual space dedicated to learning (SHOULD NOT BE THE BED, BEDROOM IS GOOD, NOT THE BED), then learning can happen

  1. Contact teachers if you have a concern or question: 

    1. All teachers love to hear from parents.  Do not be afraid to ask for help and questions.  Our esteemed staff at Harrison wants the best for your children, and that means frequent contact with us when you need help.  

  2. Allow your child to struggle: 

    1. As the guardian you do not need to have all the answers, but you need to guide your child into learning.  Students will complain and struggle, this is how we learn.  If your child already knew how to do everything, there would be no need for school.   Encourage your student to contact the teacher for help. 

  3. Begin and end the day with check-ins: communication is key

    1. Ask these questions to make sure your student is learning successfully:

      1. What classes/subject do you have today?

      2.  Do you have any assessments?

      3. • How will you spend your time?

      4. • What resources do you need?

      5. • What can I do to help?

At the end of the day questions:

      1. • How far did you get in your learning tasks today?

      2. • What did you discover? What was hard?

      3. • What could we do to make tomorrow better

  1. Make a time in the day for reflection: 

    1. Students need time to reflect on what they learned from each class.  There should be 1 thing they learn from every class every day.  

  2. Encourage your child to be physically active:

    1. Your child is a child.  Allowing them to be active helps their brain remember and store information.  

  3. Manage stress: 

    1. Your child will be stressed at some point this year.  Talk to them and provide your words to ease them of their stress.  

      1. Do you want me to listen, offer advice, or do something about the problem?

      2. How do you feel? 

      3. Why do you think you feel that way? 

      4. How can I help?

      5. Have you asked a friend or the teacher for help?

      6. It’s okay, try again, go slow.  

  4. Monitor time online and video games: 

    1. One challenge with online learning is the amount of screen time a child has.  When the student is on a computer all day, it is not good for them to play video games, watch TV, or be on their phone for long periods of time.  It is best if the students do something without technology for at least 1 hour after being at school.  

  5. Allow your child to connect with friends and peers: 

    1. This is a hard time for all of us, even children.  Allowing your child to communicate with friends and classmates will help ease their stress.  This should be done after the child has a break from technology.

 

 

 

 

Queridos Padres de Familia, 

Nosotros entendemos que el aprendizaje en línea se ha presentado con retos para usted y sus niños. Esos retos son los que nos hacen personas más seguras. El año pasado percibimos como sería el aprendizaje en línea. Esta guía puede ayudarnos a todos a hacer lo mejor de nuestro nuevo ambiente de aprendizaje a distancia 

 

Componentes del aprendizaje en línea:

Con la idea que el aprendizaje en línea sea exitoso, nosotros necesitamos 3 cosas desde casa: Rutinas y hábitos, Comunicación (entre padres, maestros y alumnos) y Retos.

 

 

Rutinas y h bitos, Comunicaci n

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

  1. Establecer rutinas y expectativas con tu niño:

    1. Asegurate que ellos estén listos para atender la clase virtual fuera de la cama.

    2. Desayunan

    3. Cepillan sus dientes

    4. Se vistan apropiadamente, no en piyama.

  2. Prepara un lugar de casa para el aprendizaje del niño 

    1. Cuando un estudiante tiene un espacio dedicado a aprender (NO DEBERÍA SER LA CAMA, LA RECAMARA ESTA BIEN, NO LA CAMA) entonces el aprendizaje puede suceder.

  3. Contacta a los maestros si tienes alguna pregunta o preocupación:

    1. A todos los maestros nos gusta que los padres nos llamen. No tengan temor de pedir ayuda o preguntar algo. Nuestro personal en Harrison MS quiere lo mejor para nuestros niños, y eso significa tener comunicación frecuente con nosotros cuando ustedes necesitan ayuda. 

  4. Permitele a tu hijo batallar:

    1. Como padre o guardián, no necesitas tener todas las respuestas, pero si necesitas guiar a tu hijo en el aprendizaje. Los estudiantes se quejaran y batallaran, esta es la manera como aprendemos todos. Si tu hijo ya sabe como hacer cada cosa, no habría necesidad de venir a la escuela. Anima a tu niño a contactar al maestro si necesita ayuda.

 

  1. Comenzar y terminar el día con chequeos: La comunicación es la clave.

    1. Haz preguntas para asegurar tu hijo está aprendiendo satisfactoriamente:

      1. ¿Qué clases tienes ahora?

      2.  ¿Tienes alguna evaluación?

      3. ¿Qué harás el día de hoy?

      4. ¿Necesitas algo para completar tu trabajo?

      5. ¿Cómo te puedo ayudar?

Preguntas al final de dia:

      1. ¿Qué tanto avanzaste en tus trabajos escolares hoy?

      2. Qué aprendiste? ¿Estuvo algo difícil?

      3. ¿Qué podrías hacer para hacerlo mejor mañana?

 

  1. Tomar un tiempo para reflexionar sobre qué aprendieron en el dia: 

    1. Los estudiantes necesitan tiempo para reflexionar qué aprendieron de cada clase.  Deberían de identificar una cosa aprendida de cada clase. 

  2. Promueve a tu hijo a estar físicamente activo:

    1. Tu hijo es un niño. Permitirles estar activos ayuda a su cerebro a recordar y retener información.

       

      8)Manejar el estrés. 

  1. Tu hijo estará estresado en un punto de este año. Habla con ellos usando tus palabras de aliento para calmar su estrés. 

      1. ¿Como te sientes? 

      2. ¿Por qué crees que te sientes así? 

      3. ¿Cómo te puedo ayudar?

      4. ¿Le has pedido ayuda al maestro o a un amigo?

      5. Esta bien, trata de nuevo , ve despacio..

      6. ¿Quieres que te escuche?, que te de un consejo? o que haga algo acerca del problema?   

  1. Monitorea el tiempo en línea y en video juegos: 

    1. Un reto del aprendizaje en línea es la cantidad de tiempo que el niño pasa en la pantalla. Cuando el estudiante está en una computadora todo el día, no es bueno para ellos continuar jugando en videojuegos, mirar TV, o estar en sus celulares largos periodos de tiempo. Es mejor si los estudiantes hacen algo sin tecnología por lo menos una hora después de estar en clases en línea.

 

  1.  Permite a tus hijos contactarse con amigos y compañeros 

    1. Estos son tiempos difíciles para todos nosotros, aun para los niños. Permitir a tus hijos comunicarse con amigos y compañeros ayudará a calmar su estrés. Esto debería suceder después que el niño tenga un descanso de la tecnología.
