Classroom Management

I've been doing fine with Virtual teaching all year but our district will be having students come back in a hybrid model in a few weeks. I can't wrap my head around what the students are to do on the 2 days they are home and learning asychronously?

Any and all ideas are welcome :) I'll post on Busy Board too just to get more ideas too.

Thanks!

I am fully virtual, but half of our grade level has students in person 2 days per week. Here is an example of what they give their students to do on the 2 days they are not in class:
1. Spelling practice each day
2. Journal writing
3. 30 minutes on LEXIA (Language Arts program)
4. 30 minutes on Typing Agent (keyboarding instruction)
5. Zearn lesson each day (Math practice)
6. P.E.-they post youtube virtual P.E. activities
7. Read and respond

Thank you for these ideas! These are realistic and a great place for me to start. I just keep wondering if the parents will be thinking....."wait, they've been with you for 5 days a week and now only 3?" Oh well, it is what it is and not my decision. Admin also keeps mentioning frontloading new content, reinforcing content, etc. I'm sure it will all fall into place and maybe I shouldn't worry so much about them having school work to do for equal hours async as if it were sync. I think that's what I'm stuck on.

The kids are excited to be back after almost a year out and I am too :)

I definitely wouldn't give them 6 hours of work.

I teach K but now that we're hybrid they do i-Ready (math and reading), Kids A-Z, and papers I send home. They also have art, music, and PE on Zoom when they are at home.

On the 2 days a week they are with me I have only half the class so they get tons of individual attention. We are able to accomplish a lot more during the school day than we would in a regular year. Half the kids, no transitions, no art, music or phys ed. We have 7 solid hours in the classroom.

My students also have access to other learning sites such as Spelling City, math games, etc. if they want more work.

sevenplus--your daily/weekly schedule sounds exactly like ours. I'll have kids F2F 2 days a week for the A/B groupings and all Virtual 1 day a week. So I'm thinking I really need to plan for 2 async days, I'm hoping.

Could they read independently a book at home and do stop and jots/stickies, or read on Raz kids or epic? spelling activities... zearn. Write a story or prompt at home. My daughter is virtual but they mostly do assignments alone at home, not while on zoom.... any fun type of project they could work on at home and take a picture of later?

basketball777, those are they types of activities I'm planning on doing along with some other curricular ideas. Thanks for letting me know I'm on the right track.
