Last week, I saw a photo of a friend’s son attending his first day of kindergarten—virtually—and it really caught my attention. All of us are transitioning to a new world, thanks to COVID, but it strikes me that some among us have lost their opportunity to experience the old one. While none of this is “normal” for most of us, for that little boy and thousands of others, this is the only experience of school they’ve ever had. We are currently creating a world by our responses that will be normal before we know it. What does the future hold?
This week our resources center around the concept of change and the new normal. We hope you’re having a good week back to school and that these resources can spark some interesting conversations in your classrooms, be they brick and mortar, or virtual!
