We were anticipating an interesting day, it being Friday the 13th, but never were we expecting the stay-at-home announcement that came suddenly that afternoon. Who would have thought when my students and I said goodbye that it would be our last day in our classroom.
And just like that, suddenly without warning, we began our distance learning journey together.
We are making the best of it, taking advantage of the various online resources. Students access learning opportunities via our Google Classroom. Several times per week we 'meet' on Zoom to check in with one another, share Good Things, practice and review skills, and engage in fun learning activities. In addition, I am posting videos, audio, screen sharing for them to continue to learn new material. I am impressed and so proud of the level of participation and the families' willingness to try new things.
During this time of distance learning, I find myself remotely teaching form home and trying to reach my students with learning activities through video conferencing and recorded home videos. Many of my students are actively engaging in the learning opportunities I am creating. I want my students to continue to grow and learn and be ready for the next school year.
Anchor charts would enrich our live video sessions as well as add to the video recordings I make for my students.
These tools will continue to be useful when we return to the physical classroom!
