Online Learning Resources

Learning from home
Welcome Armatage students & families!
 
During this challenging time we want students and families to have some meaningful activities to engage in. We are having some challenges with the Google Classroom platform with the entire school, I think this is intended for individual classrooms.  I'm going to move this to the website and update it every few days.  I'll include a variety of enrichment resources.
 
These resources align to our Armatage SEL (Social Emotional Learning) themes with a focus on culturally relevant texts and resources. Our theme for March is bravery; having courage, using innovative thinking and being persistent. Our current times certainly call for bravery and will be an opportunity to think and do things differently.
 
Stay safe & know that we will miss seeing all of your children's faces at Armatage!

Go on a home safari! Watch this Brazilian porcupine Rico from the Cincinnati Zoo! Students, you can jot down some things you notice about this porcupine. If you have pets at home, you can do some observations about their behavior. For example, my cats and dog sleep a LOT during the day!
