Remote Learning Plan

Remote Learning Plan (2020-21)

Overview of Schedules During Remote Learning

Students will have two schedules. The first is their "synchronous schedule" or live online session or meeting with a teacher. Students and parents may see their daily synchronous schedule in two ways. The first is by logging into their Wornick Google account, going to calendar.google.com, and seeing your daily and long term schedule. Any synchronous lesson times have been entered into your student’s calendar for them, and the link to join the Google Meet meeting is in the calendar details.

Your student can also see their daily meetings at meet.google.com while logged into their Wornick account.

Students will see their daily activities for asynchronous learning by logging into Seesaw for TK-3 and clicking on Activities. For Grades 4-8, they will log into Google Classroom through their Wornick Gmail account. They will see a morning message and all of their daily activities on their page. 

Remote Learning TK-3:

Parents can expect approximately 3.5 hours of daily activities per CAIS guidance for remote learning. These activities may include a morning message, storytime, Writers' Workshop, Reading, Math, History, Jewish Studies, Hebrew, Science, or additional educational activity. In TK-3, all activities will be found on the Seesaw for Class Learning Platform. They may be in the form of a video, online activity, or offline activity. Please note that not all subjects will be assigned each day, and that as part of our approach to education which includes integrated curriculum and projects, there may be assignments that include multiple subjects and cross-curricular standards. In TK/K, Hebrew and Jewish Studies will be combined. 
 
Students in TK-3 will also be scheduled for one 15 minute one to one session with a teacher on Google Meet on Mondays. They will also be scheduled for small group learning sessions during the week on Google Meet. These sessions will be pre-scheduled for you in Google Meet and will show up in your child’s Google Calendar.

Social Emotional Support

Our school counselor Sara Calonico will be available to meet with students during the period of remote learning. To initiate a 1-1 call with Sara, please reach out to her at scalonico@wornickjds.org. Sara may proactively reach out to some students with whom she already has a working relationship.

Supporting Diverse Learners

During the period of remote learning, Ms. Samovar, our Director of Learning Support, will be in all google classrooms and grade level Seesaw pages reviewing students work and supporting teachers in engaging our diverse learners. Ms. Samovar will also be reaching out separately to engage in 1-1 google video conference calls with students to maintain her work with the students she regularly supports. Please be on the lookout for google event invitations for your students 1-1 with Ms. Samovar.

Attendance

Each day, students will be marked absent or present based on whether they participated in the assigned activities or online sessions. 

Discipline

Google hangouts and "chats" are currently enabled. Typically, these functions are disabled in the Wornick space for some grade levels. Students who abuse the hangout space or use the chat inappropriately with their peers will have their hangouts disabled for a period of time as a consequence, as determined by the Head of School or Principal. We encourage you to monitor your students' computer use to support them in using it appropriately.
