Well Being and The Elements of Learning

Submitted by angela.killian on Thu, 04/09/2020 - 10:36

What brings me hope in this world is the children.  With children comes laughter, energy, kindness, creativity, unconditional love, a desire to learn. Classes have been dismissed.  Yet we all continue to learn from our homes. Sing, read-aloud, play games in the yard, cook, paint, play cards, visit a virtual museum, dance, write letters, write poems, color, build a fort, make puppets, have a tea party, make lemonade, have a hug 'o war. 

There are so many different views on how to travel 'at-home' learning.  I'm not sure if there is an perfect strategy.  I think the Elements of Learning is an informed approach to maintain our well-being and the well-being of our children http://riverview.nebo.edu/content/learning-pit.  Remember that learning occurs in phases. Use the growth mindset of the learning pit. Implement the learner powers. Remember: "What we do at Riverview is important," "You CAN do hard things," "We are never going to give up on you."
