My Students

As we all know these have been very challenging times. Not being in the classroom physically has affected my classroom. My students are learning from home and I am doing my best to help them. They are also doing their best adjusting to this type of learning. Every morning I have to log into Google Classroom and check to see if any student needs help. I also use Google Meet 3 to 4 times per week to help students with their assignments. I also create meaningful multimedia experiences for my students using Pear Deck for Google Slides. Technology is helping us stay in contact with our students to give them the academic, social and emotional support they need.

My Project

The Cricut machine, vinyl paper, and peeling tools will allow me to create a nice background to give my distance learning a cool environment. I want to keep my students motivated and create messages of inspiration on my wall that will serve as the background during Google Meet. I will also have the students' names on my teaching wall as well. I am sure this will brighten up their day since they have been so sad about the school closing. Another project that I want to create with this is custom mugs for the students with their name on it using the vinyl paper. The projects I can create are endless!
