Use these free printable emergent readers to help students understand the changes in a school day this year. Two different versions for virtual learning and modified in school learning are included to help your students feel comfortable with back to school this year.
School looks a lot different this year for teachers and for students! Students, as expected, are going to struggle with so many changes and as teachers, it’s our job to help them feel safe so they can learn.
Since this back to school looks different and is far from “normal,” you can find lots of tips and information on hosting a Virtual Meet the Teacher for students and parents, as well as tips on Contactless Greetings to help students feel welcome and comfortable while staying socially distant and get all of our digital teaching curriculum here perfect for distance teaching.
These printable emergent readers are a great way for little learners to practice their reading skills while learning about how their school day will be different than in the past.
This is a great way to help students feel more confident in their learning environments and teaching them what to expect as they learn this year. Each 7-page book focuses on either a virtual classroom setting at home or a classroom learning setting so you can tailor it to each student.
