When we first were informed we were going to be off school for a period of time, I thought, “I’ll get all these projects done!” I even wrote about my list early on in the SOL Challenge. Clean out closets, donate toys, dig out flower pots…the list goes on. How much have I gotten done? One task. Just one. My son and I went through his closet, finding things he’s outgrown, and made a pile to take to our local thrift shop. Those clothes? Still on his bedroom floor. Those other projects? Still not done.
Looking back on the last two weeks, I am surprised at how busy I’ve been with distance learning. My district supplied learning packets for students, the first of which students took home the week before school closed down. The next packets are available for download or pick up at the school. Other than answering questions from parents via email, we haven’t had to really DO anything else. I have sent video greetings each morning via Class Dojo, and I am also recording myself doing a read aloud on Dojo as well. Not all students have the technology access though, so I know not everyone is seeing these posts. So where is all my time going??!
