Our dedicated Distance Learning Team provides interactive daily differentiated instruction, including live lessons. Instruction is from 8:45-12:45 M-F . We are guided by our NNM mission, Common Core Standards,and Montessori principles. We are honored to work with your children.
All lesson slots are 45 minutes, and start times will remain consistent, but the team has developed protocols out of respect for attention span, time for one on one discussions, off screen work, breakout room time, problem solving, and bio breaks. Our goal is to be interactive, engaging, and personal.
To nurture independence and self direction, students will use clickable graphic daily planners that will take them directly to the instructor Zoom call or Google Meet for that particular time. These can be used in both Seesaw and Google Classroom. Parents will receive weekly schedules prior to the beginning of each week in the form of a .pdf delivered by email. Our team meets weekly, and we are in close communication with Anne and the 6-9 and 9-12 teachers.
