Welcome to Mrs. Delanty's classroom home page! We appreciate your patience while we navigate the 'at home' resource tools for our Lifeskills students. Here you will find helpful links, important dates, and other information for your convenience. Please contact me with any questions you may have.
Dear Life Skills Families,
The Whittier Life Skills team members want you to know just how much we miss each and everyone of you, during this temporary classroom closure. As soon as we know more information regarding our return we will notify you.
PLANNING YOUR WEEK
Things to consider when scheduling your child’s day:
- Do what you can. These guides are not meant to be stressful but rather to be a support for you.
- Routines and structure are important.
- The activities suggested are intended to be interactive when possible.
- At-home learning can be more flexible than a traditional school day. Do what works best for your family’s schedule and situation.
- Taking breaks throughout the day are also important and can take many forms: breaks might include outside play, board games, puzzles, crafts or physical activity, etc.
- Depending upon the age of your child, the amount of time they can engage productively in one activity may vary and they may need more frequent breaks throughout the day.
SCIENCE: Science Activity: When outside make observations and look for evidence of Fall in the plants.
Possible Daily Schedules:
