My Students

My fourth grade class has been connecting to Zoom, NearPod, Scholastic News, Imagine Literacy, daily as we move instruction from the classroom to virtual. We are making the best out of the many challenges that distance learning has presented to our class.

Many of my students, nor myself, were prepared with technology resources at home necessary to quickly connect to online instruction.

We have been growing our technological skills and the use of the materials will help enhance and supplement their learning.

My Project

These materials will allow me to better support my students remotely. In our Zoom class, I use two devices to provide a better learning experience. The stylus pen will help me digitally model student work, and give specific feedback on assignments. My home laptop does not have MS Office, and having this software will allow me to produce documents in Microsoft format.

These materials will allow me to improve my instruction overall and better support my students remotely.

I will be able to provide digital lessons as my students observe on our Zoom calls, and create lesson plans and communicate online instruction using Microsoft Word, Excel, and Powerpoint.

We are making the best out of the many challenges we face during distance learning.
