The Learning Center (TLC) is here to help you navigate your child's distance learning needs. We offer online resources for parents and students to assist with distance learning such as supporting your children with Executive Function Skills (organization, task initiation, planning, etc.) Please fill out this Google Survey to tell us what you are finding most challenging.

The ES teachers would like to invite Alpha and JK students to connect with them using Zoom. Through the Zoom platform, the Experiential School aspires to achieve the goals of assembling, seeing each other and sharing experiences together. These learning experiences are being designed thoughtfully and intentionally to ensure that the Zoom sessions are developmentally appropriate for young children, positive, and meaningful.
Before we embarked on our distance learning days, Junior Kindergateners germinated beans in wet paper towels and hung them in the windows of the Experiential School. To continue their project while at home, Mrs. Hahn moved the delicate plants to a window of her home office. Shortly thereafter, the seeds began to sprout! Mrs. Hahn shared pictures with her students so they could observe the roots and small sprouts. She then planted each sprout in a seedling pot and the children have been watching them grow through their weekly chats.

With many families preparing meals at home and trying to keep their children engaged, SAGE is prepared to help! We’ve developed a video series with easy, delicious recipes to prepare at home (pasta Primavera with marinara sauce!), instructions for various cooking techniques, nutritional guidance, and even home food sanitation and hygiene tips.
Many wonderful people give their time, energy, and effort to Shorecrest each year! If you know of someone whose contributions have been outstanding, please nominate that person for the 2020 Janet Root Volunteer of the Year Award. A form and criteria for selection may be found here.
Last month, JK students in Mrs. Hahn’s class started exploring South America, specifically all the plants and animals that call the Amazon Rainforest their home. The students wanted to create their own rainforest to hang in the classroom, so they designed, drew and painted layers of the rainforest, as well as foliage and animals that live there.
