These uncertain times have catapulted us into uncharted territories of teaching and learning from a distance. With sudden change comes both innovation and anxiety.  How might we continue to support our own, our students, and our families’ engagement in learning and growth during this time of social isolation? Join us as we explore some practical ways to promote literacy (print & digital), social emotional learning, and hands on inquiry during distance learning.
