Ms. Jennifer's Classes
2-day & 3-day
Greetings from the south side of Ankeny! I really miss seeing your faces in class, hearing your funny stories, and being in the same room with you!
In an effort to stay connected, I have some ideas.
1-please check my instagram acct. each day. I am going to communicate with you daily. Please be sure to click on my acct., because it is possible to miss posts with the way instagram doesn't use a chronological feed.
2-PLEASE CONSIDER DOWNLOADING THE APP: Marco Polo
I put this app on my phone so my 10 yr old can talk with his friends. Please consider adding this app to your phone---I will be making class groups and I am really hoping we can all make videos to share within our class groups. If I see you on there as a contact, I will invite you to connect. Please do the same for me, so we can get things going!
Please reply to this email and let me know if you would like to "meet" via a phone call. I have not been able to complete every evaluation before our conference times. But I can certainly talk with you about your child's progress. If I do not hear back from you, I will assume you do NOT want to have a phone meeting.
4-People are asking what they can do to keep their kid learning:
READ together! Look for letters in the books you read, on cereal boxes, etc. I will email things of value to you as I find them.
COUNT--count collections, identify numbers, sort. Please do this during the natural playing process! This will build 1:1 correspondence and number sense. You do not need buy workbooks or print worksheets for this.
Sing and dance with your children. Music engages every section of the brain at one time. You do not have to be a singer. Process over Product!
Play!! It is the work of the child.
I will look for you on Marco Polo. Please keep texting me if your child is asking about class. Keep connecting and I look forward to seeing you SOON!
Lots of Love
