• At home visual schedules available:

    1. I will be available online to answer emails Monday through Friday from 9 to 11 AM at lszymendera@staffordschools.net. You can also reach me between 9 am and 5 pm on my cell 540-538-3055. Please note, if I receive an email/voicemail message outside of these hours, I will be sure to respond within 24 hours. Thanks so much for your patience!

    2. Activities will be available on the "resources" page beginning on April 6th, 2020. In the meantime, there are fun acitivities to do from home listed as a document under the "documents" link on the "resources" page. I will provide a reminder on our "welcome" page, under "announcements" when new activities are added. I ask that you engage with your child for at least an hour a day, to the best of your ability. Choose two to three activities to engage with your child.  Repetition is important for learning.  Then fifteen minutes of reading with your child.

    3. To create a free at home visual schedule, if needed, please go to: https://teachingmama.org/visual-schedule-for-toddlers/

    To avoid confusion and frustration for your child, please only present 3 to 4 pictures of activities at a time, in either a left to right sequence or in a vertical fashion. Once the 3-4 activities are completed, allow your child a "break" while you replace them with the next sequence of activities. If you need additional assistance in creating a personal visual schedule for your child, and do not find what you need in the above link, please feel free to contact me and I will be happy to assist you!
