Remote learning week two has been a real eye-opener. As we are working on things this year, it has come to my attention that one of my daughters doesn’t know how to take notes. She is now engaged in a note-taking exercise that involves writing down keywords from videos.
I found a site online that offered flashcards and terminology, so I printed the information out and made copies. For some reason, the school doesn’t seem to have books in a lot of these classes. The students are relying on notes. I would be lying if I told you that this makes this easier.
I’m going to have to buy a biology and economics book because I want the kids to be able to study the chapters away from their computers. As far as grades go this second week, we are doing good in most classes. My youngest is having a hard time with some of the sites that require special codes. We had to email one of her teachers and request a new code because the site still has her information saved from when she was in the 8th grade last year.
So thus goes my day. We started around 8:30 and will go until the last class is finished. Hope all is going well for the ones of you on the same journey.
