Asynchronous Lessons

There is no way to replicate the in-class, in-person school experience using remote platforms. Working with Bay Farm’s teachers, instructors, parent volunteers, and others, we are creating and curating a number of lessons that reflect some of what our students would have experienced if this were a normal school year. Lessons will be posted here as they come available. Teachers are invited to assign lessons through their google classrooms. Parents and students are welcome to explore these lessons on their own.

If you have a talent/skill that you could teach remotely (via recorded video lessons) and would be willing to provide lessons, please email PTSA President to volunteer your services.

Mindful artistic expression can help students reduce stress and calm their minds as they deal with remote learning, being separated from school friends and teachers, and not knowing when things will get back to normal. Zentangle® is a relaxing way to draw beautiful images with patterns.  It was created by Maria Thomas and Rick Roberts and you can always go to zentangle.com to learn more about it. Ms. Shimabukuro, certified Zentangle® teacher, Ed.D. (CZT), is providing Zentangle® lessons for Alameda students this school year.

The Outdoor Learning Center Garden Instruction supplements many of the in-class science lessons and standards and provides students with hands-on experience in the natural ecosystems around them. During garden instruction, students plant, tend, harvest, and prepare and eat organic produce under the supervision of the (PTSA funded!) Garden Instructor and parent volunteers. Our goal is that students—kindergarten through 8th grade—are “eco-literate” by the time they leave Bay Farm School.
