While virtual learning wasn’t ideal, it is the hand we are dealt this semester. My daughter’s school, St. Joseph School, Medford, had a platform for learning the Monday after school closures. Not only did she learn what a 3rd grader needs to learn, she gained technology skills. Google classroom, Flipgrid, and Zoom were utilized. It was an added bonus that her awesome teacher recreated her classroom “rug” by reading to the kids on Instagram! Again, nothing replaces classroom learning and socializing, but if you are looking for small class sizes and great teachers, consider St. Joseph’s School in Medford.
