Kgn learning environment in school during covid

    I am very interested in hearing from any kindergarten teachers who will be allowed to set up a PHYSICALLY DISTANT, but hands on, child directed classroom, when we go back to school. I have seen many incredible, emergent  ECE Preschool programs in session...but I'm hoping that there are kindergarten teachers who will also be providing a developmentally appropriate, SAFE learning environment for kindergartners!

    It's so hard to open backup with everything going on But. I know I can't stay close forever.

    Following this thread. I will post what I am doing soon. I am meeting with four other DL Kindergarten teachers as well. I am also teaching in the morning with in-person children. Balancing act for sure!

    Thanks so much. I am really looking forward to hearing what your classroom looks like in covid times...and I would love to hear if you are successfully expecting the kindergartners to maintain physical distance from one another. What I am seeing in many "in session" local preschools is that it's pretty impossible to keep the kids from trying to play together. Is that what  are you experiencing in your class??
    Lastly, are your students moving through the classroom or are they expected to stay in 'assigned' seats?  Again, thanks for sharing!!

    Hi, All !
    I  am also interested in what kindergarten teachers are doing in their classrooms that is developmentally appropriate.
    I am interested in how thy are managing Electronic Learning if they are in school systems.

    Are you already back IN school? Wondering if the children are assigned seats or if they are able to SAFELY move through areas of the classroom.

    Hi, Marni and All.

    I am interested as one of the NAEYC Kindergarten Interest Forum facilitators.
    I also have a six year old great-granddaughter who just completed kindergarten.

    My last entry to HELLO listed another aspect of my professional life -my past work with Illinois AEYC.
    I have requested NAEYC to list my correct ID as NAEYC Kindergarten Interest Forum facilitator.
