I hope this message finds you all doing well. In response to the closure of BPS for the next few weeks, curriculum leaders, coaches, administrators, and teachers have been working hard to prepare enrichment activities for all Bedford Public School students.
The activities contained on this webpage are optional and can be used to maintain an educational routine and connection to school. The goal of each activity is to give students an opportunity to practice skills and review previously taught content through the completion of different activities that include games, practice assessments, and projects. Since the goal of the activities is to support prior lessons, the work completed by students will not be collected or graded by classroom teachers.
A suggestion would be to establish a daily schedule Monday thru Friday for students. This might look like the following schedule:
- Before 9:00 a.m. ~ Wake up
- 9:00-10:00 a.m. ~ Morning walk/play outside
- 10:00-11:00 a.m. ~ Academic time (use the activities within the BPS website)
- 11:00-12:00 p.m. ~ Creative time (legos, drawing, painting, coloring, building, etc.)
- 12:30 p.m. ~ Chores
- 1:00-2:00 p.m. ~ Quiet time (reading, puzzles, writing)
- 2:00-3:00 p.m. ~ Academic time (use the activities within the BPS website)
- 3:00-5:00 p.m. ~ Play outside, walk, dance, try to get some exercise
If you have accessibility concerns, we will be updating this page with more ideas from special educators, EL teachers, and related service providers throughout the time students are out of school. If you have questions about any of the activities, please email your child’s principal. Thank you for your support.
Bedford Community Resources and Support
We understand the closure of the Bedford Public Schools may impact the members of our community in various ways. Here is a list of resources that our students and families may access during school closures, including several other area resources for families dealing with food insecurity. We will continue to update this list as more information becomes available.
