I hope everyone is doing well so far this week, washing your hands, and staying healthy! I am doing my best to keep busy and use this as a special time to spend with my family and work on things that make me happy. BUT I am also busy creating new things for YOU! Please remember to continue learning each and everyday while we are away from school. We want our brains to keep growing big and strong!!
On Monday, March 30th, I will be sharing HOME LEARNING PACKETS for my Kindergarten, 1st grade, and 2nd grade diverse learners. Each of these Learning Packets will contain 3 full weeks worth of learning.
If you are finding the packet for your grade is too challenging, please go down a grade and complete that packet.
For example, if you are in 2nd grade and the 2nd grade packet is too challenging, try the 1st grade packet. That is TOTALLY fine!!
I will touch base again on Monday with more information. As always, please email me if you have any questions or concerns.
MISS YOU ALL SO MUCH!
Love, Ms. McCabe
