Drama, PE, Spanish, music, and gardening will continue to be a critical part of our program at Mulberry. Delivery of these programs will be altered to meet the safety requirements at this time. Classroom teachers will be creatively providing drama and PE. For example, drama activities for a cohort might include readers’ theater, puppet shows, vignettes, debates, or improv games. For PE, examples might include jump rope, hopscotch, Simon Says, track, free play, hikes to the park, circuit workouts, and more. Teachers will utilize equipment that has been sanitized prior to student use. As much as possible, students will use individual supplies versus shared equipment
Specialists will be delivering their lessons virtually, in order to follow the guidelines for maintaining a safe cohort. In many cases, they will provide the individual student materials to the classroom teacher in advance of their lesson time. We are pleased to share that Debi Sabo will be teaching our Gardening for our elementary students, Samantha Abouav will be teaching Music for our students JK- 5th/6th, and Monica Pieratt Rodriguez will be teaching Spanish to grades JK-8.
