A2OCA's Blended Learning Program
Updated: Mar 10
Our Kindergarten students continue to work at home three days per week with one-hour classes each of those three days and meet at St. Vladimir’s two days per week for in-person instruction. Over the past several weeks, our Kindergarten students have further grown their understanding of phonics (learning to read common words and three-letter consonant-vowel-consonant [CVC] words) and mathematical concepts (such as before and after numbers, as well as 1 addition families until 5 addition families). Students have, also, practiced proper manners with each other, focusing on one manner per week. Examples of the manners that they have learned and practiced over the past few weeks include: ‘Consider your words before your speak. Be truthful, kind, and helpful,’ ‘Look for opportunities to help others,’ and ‘Look for opportunities to be kind.’
Leading up to the Christmas break, we read wonderful literature and created beautiful crafts relating to the following books: ‘Bread and Jam for Frances’ (by Russell Hoban), ‘This First Thanksgiving Day’ (by Laura Krauss Melmed), ‘The Little Fir Tree’ (by Margaret Wise Brown), and ‘The Twelve Days of Christmas’ (illustrated by Jan Brett). See the picture below for an example of students' crafts from the past several weeks.
We resume our on-line classes on Monday, January 9th, 2023, and our in-person classes on Wednesday, January 18th, 2023.
Until then, we wish you and your loved ones a blessed Christmas break celebrating the birth of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ!
