Dear Cheetah Families,
Thank you all for your immense support to our students and teachers. We understand that many of you are going through a lot of uncertainty during this time and we would like to give a huge shout out to all the parents who are supporting our students academically, physically, emotionally, and socially during this time. At this time, we are unsure whether students will be returning back to school before summer. Therefore, we will be introducing some new concepts and we want to make sure that our students are able to get the best education through distance learning. In order to get this going, we would like all the students to attend zoom lessons to understand the concept and this would be an opportunity to see their classmates. Here are some of the guidelines:
We highly recommend our students to be present for zoom lessons and to follow the schedule. Please have them sit in a designated spot where they are away from all distractions. When they come for the lessons, please make sure they are on time and bring only their work packets, lapboard, pencils, and eraser as they do in class. There can be no toys or other distractions so that students will not miss any part of the lesson.
New concepts will be taught as lessons during the Zoom meeting. So kindly check the zoom schedule before assigning your student to work on a particular worksheet. If they need help with any other worksheet, they can always check with me during lessons. I can assign time to teach those lessons.
To keep students’ work time routine, please have them complete 1 worksheet at a time. Once they complete 1 worksheet, check for its correctness and that the concept is understood. Once the worksheet is correct, then sign students off and have them proceed to the next worksheet (This is what they do at school). If you are unable to sign off 1 worksheet at a time, have students complete 3 worksheets before you check and sign them off.
A suggestion when you help your student. Teach the concept first and help with a few questions in the worksheet then let your student work on the rest. That’s how we know whether our students get the concept or not. Parents are welcome to stay for the lesson but please make sure to be an observer.
Ask your students to wear headphones to avoid any distractions during lessons.
