ELEMENTARY SCHOOL CONTINUOUS LEARNING PLAN
Blue Valley’s Elementary School Continuous Learning Plan provides at-home learning opportunities and supports students in new ways. The plan focuses on personalizing the lessons for students, engaging students and providing feedback.
Families play an important role in continuous learning. Understanding what is expected of your student, creating a daily schedule and identifying a dedicated learning space are some ways to support continuous learning. At the elementary level, we will have two phases of instruction - Phase 1: Choice Learning Boards and Phase 2: Targeted Instruction
PHASE 1: ELEMENTARY CHOICE LEARNING BOARDS
For the weeks of March 30 and April 6, families will receive access to choice learning boards that provide students opportunities to engage in academic activities in CORE subject areas, specials and social-emotional learning. Set up similarly to a bingo board, elementary students will be asked to complete a minimum of one activity per subject area/category per day at their own pace. Families can modify this suggested workload to complete fewer activities or more activities based on individual need.
These boards have been developed with all learners in mind. We will be offering instruction both online and in a print format to meet the needs of all families. Elementary students DO NOT need access to technology to complete activities. Please note, the activities are the exact same, regardless of digital or printed format. If your family would like to receive the learning resources in print format, please email your principal.
SPECIAL EDUCATION AND ADDITIONAL SUPPORTS
Modified choice boards will be available for students who receive special education support, ESOL support, enrichment support, are a part of the Chinese Immersion program, etc. If your child is on an IEP, a 504 plan or is receiving special education supports, you will receive communication specific to your child.
PHASE 2: TARGETED INSTRUCTION
From April 13 - May 22, targeted instruction on essential grade-level standards will be provided to families. These lessons are currently being developed in both digital and non-digital formats, and will be communicated to you by your student’s teacher. More information to come soon.
For questions about continuous learning, please contact your child’s teacher and principal.
