The coronavirus pandemic affected my classroom, by not allowing me the opportunity to gather all the materials I would need to help my students complete lessons I needed to instruct to them. We had two days to try and write lesson plans and get packets of work together for two weeks worth for the kids and were not told to grab any other resources, thinking we would return after those two weeks. So, when the governor shut our schools down, I had to try and get resources to help my children. I really only have work books on line and materials I can find on the internet.
The Chromebook will allow me to have Zoom Meetings with my kids without the technical issues I am having with my outdated Chromebook. I want to be able to continue holding instructional lessons and keeping the connection with my kids. I love to see them on a daily basis and to hold lessons with the children, but unfortunately, my Chromebook keeps freezing or shutting down. I have had to meet with small groups and have had to limit the time because of the issues I have been having.
This new Chromebook will allow me to Zoom with my kids everyday and to have lessons with them seeing me during the instruction.
I want to keep the connection I have worked so hard to make the first part of the school year.
