Virtual Learning Opportunities

KES teachers have communicated with students and families the expectations and guidelines for weekly class sessions, including how students can utilize the online resources through Henrico EdFlix. A general guideline for meetings is Kg – 1 is about 60 minutes weekly and grades 2 – 5 is 90 minutes weekly. The classroom teacher determines the best time to connect each week, as well as the overall plan for what will occur when the class meets.

Henrico EdFlix (http://blogs.henrico.k12.va.us/hlp/virtual-learning/) offers learning opportunities that align well to how we want to challenge our coyotes. These opportunities allow students to go “deeper” and apply the skills previously learned, creating individualized student learning which can become more complex depending on where the student takes each lesson. The learning episodes align to our goals at KES, and although the activities are optional, we hope our coyotes take advantage of what is available. Throughout each “episode” your child’s teacher will guide and facilitate discussion that will help students be more successful when they choose to complete the activities. If you have any questions or concerns, please reach out to your child’s teacher.

Additionally,  Library, Art, Music, and PE  (LAMP) teachers are putting the pieces together for our coyotes to stay connected with the arts. Please review the details below for further opportunities. In the coming weeks, we will highlight some of the things they have made available for our coyotes.

PE:  You can go to Mr. Runk’s blog  http://blogs.henrico.k12.va.us/jbrunk/ or YouTube channel @RunkPE to get some “At Home PE” videos. He has also collaborated with a colleague, and they are making some amazing videos for the students At Home Pokémon HIIT Video.

Music:  Check our Mr. Krauss’s blog:  http://blogs.henrico.k12.va.us/gekraussMr. Krauss has been connecting with students when class meetings happen, and in some cases, our coyotes are showcasing their musical skills. 

Library:  Not sure what to read next?  Can you make a recommendation to another coyote friend?   Using Flipgrid, check out this site created by our KES librarian, Mrs. Sulzer: https://flipgrid.com/7caa40af   passcode:  KESReads There is not doubt that our Coyotes are readers!
