Classroom Information

The St. Clare of Montefalco kindergarten class consists of 16 delightful students. Our day begins with morning calendar, followed by Language Arts, Religion, Math, and Science or Social Studies.

Once each week, the children attend Spanish, Music and Technology. They are fortunate enough to attend Physical Education and Art twice each week!

 

Our classroom consists of tables and chairs. Most tables seat one or two students. One large table has three students. Larger tables have sneeze guards to separate the students assigned to those tables. The tables are cleaned daily with bleach wipes.

 

During Distance Learning, each student was assigned an iPad to take home. Mrs. Pawlowski used Google Classroom as our platform. Parents could find their child’s Zoom schedule and assignments each day in Google Classroom. The children were encouraged to use the online IXL Program for Math and Language Arts. Each kindergarten student received a Distance Learning Binder, which contained Math work sheets; Let's Find Out magazines and worksheets for Science and Social Studies; and consumable Reading Letter Books. Mondays were an outside Materials Exchange Day.

 

Kindergarten students had the option of virtually attending Spanish, Music, Technology, Physical Education and Art. During distance learning, I met with students virtually every day for Language Arts. The 16 students were divided into four groups so that it would be easier for them to stay focused and be more productive. I would alternate Math, Religion, Science and Social Studies daily.
