The New Normal

These first weeks of school have largely fallen around accepting the new normal, learning new routines, and exploring the new way of living with distance. Teachers have gotten creative in making a classroom safe, yet conducive to learning with small changes. Ideas such as hooks on the desk to hang personal water bottles, masks, and sanitizer, plexi - glass dividers, one way hall traffic, and desk art have created classrooms ready for learning in a social distancing manner. 

Placing flex seating in corners around the room rather than in group, playing group games virtually, and reading as a large group rather than small can be seamlessly adjusted to maintain safety of our beloved students. 

The new normal may not always be ideal, but learning to adjust, adapt, and compromise are beneficial skills we can teach our students to embrace.
