My Students

These are unprecedented times. Never did I imagine that when my 5th grade students and I said goodbye in March, it would mean that it was our last day in the classroom. However, the year is not over yet!

My 5th graders and I have embarked on the distance learning journey!

We are actively engaging in all sorts of different online platforms and learning new things. My students and I participate daily in Zoom meetings to learn new curriculum, small groups and conferences to check in with them one-on-one. I've been trying to gather material to send in the mail or drop off to students so they have access to what is needed. I am amazed by their level of engagement and participation and by their families' willingness to try new things.

My Project

Due to unfortunate worldwide events, school are closed while teachers, parents and student are learning and figuring out ways to make it possible to learn virtually.

Teachers are coming up with the most creative ways to teach lessons to their students and to make sure that every student have access to the same materials.

The manila envelopes are going to be used to send packets and material to students' homes so they can have access to materials needed for class. Since most student are using iPads and Chromebooks, the stylus pens will help them navigate and share ideas easily when screen sharing on Zoom. Since I do not have my Elmo to project work, I will be using the gooseneck iPhone holder to connect my iPhone to project lessons and examples during virtual class. Lastly, the notebooks will be sent home for the students to use.
