We are now on the second week of classes for this school year. Yasmin is in Grade 10 while Yohan is already in Grade 5.
Honestly, we experienced a lot of challenges last year. The kids have a hard time adjusting to blended learning. And so am I -as their home learning partner most of the time. We even hired a tutor for Yohan as my alternate during the times that I have to report at the office. Yasmin’s grades dropped because she was overwhelmed with the activities required in most of the subjects. Nevertheless, we survived and completed the new normal schooling amidst this on-going pandemic.
This year, we are anticipating some adjustments that I believe will make learning from home much easier. Thanks for the applications made accessible for the kids, such as Facebook Messenger. Google Workspace (Gmail, Google Meet, Google Classroom, and Google Forms. They are also learning to use Canva for designing their outputs.
They will still use the Self-Learning Modules developed by DepEd as reference for their lesson and activities.
Good luck to us and hoping for another meaningful and productive school year.
