To help keep the Junior Kindergartners in Mrs. Roberson's class connected with their online classmates, the students have been working on their memorizing abilities together through Zoom.
"Junior Kindergarten has always put a significant focus on social skills and teamwork," said JK teacher Lindy Roberson. "With some of our friends learning from home, we wanted to make sure we found ways to foster these skills even from a distance."
Tuesday, during their center block time, the students in the classroom paired up with some of the at-home learners to play a memory game. While the math skills in the memory game are important skills, students are also learning how to communicate and work together with others.
"Taking turns and being a good sport are just a few of the skills we hope to instill in our JK kiddos through our virtual center time," said Mrs. Roberson. "I have to say, I am incredibly impressed with the relationships that have formed regardless of where our students are learning. I love seeing them interact and the giggles they share no matter the distance."
