My Students

Our schooling was abruptly ended. We ended a Friday like we typically did with the news of the initial one week shutdown an hour after dismissal. One week became two weeks. Two weeks became a month and here we are now the rest of the year. My students and I never got to prepare for a small extension from school never mind where we are now.

My Project

The first part of my project will be used to create a flat teacher project. My plan is to mail my students a flat image of myself and a poem with several activities and adventures this teacher would like to go on within the safety of their home/neighborhood. My hope is that this will help bring a smile to my students faces and get them moving, thinking, writing, and sharing about the adventures that my flat self and themselves have gone on.

Our face to face year ended so abruptly and I’d like to send a piece of normal to them at home.

The second part of this project is to help me teach and display the work we are doing together. I will be able to work while showing the work through our online teaching platforms.
