My Students

As a first-year teacher preparing for a totally different year than ever before, I have yet to meet my students. I'm not even 100% sure I will get to see my students in this first semester. It breaks my heart because how am I supposed to build connections and develop relationships virtually?

Finding out about gives me hope that I can give an exceptional virtual education to all the students on my roster.

Virtual learning is not an easy task and resources are needed that schools cant readily supply to teachers. I hope that in doing this, I can take the stress out of the unknown with virtual teaching and be as successful as I strive to be.

My Project

All my students will be receiving Chromebooks to aid in virtual learning. Unfortunately due to lower economic status, I do not want to put the burden of gathering these materials on the families of the students I will be teaching or myself.

Currently, virtual supplies are on backorder for my district so the tripod will help immensely in recording lessons as well as read-aloud for my 3rd graders.

I plan on making them a tote bag to take home all materials they will need such as whiteboards, markers, erasers, pencils, a notebook, colored pencils, etc. I also have a grand plan to make little ID badges (like they see their teachers wearing) so I can do face to name recognition and put their usernames and password for all their logins.

It's not easy doing distanced learning but, I believe these resources will help me, my students, and their families ease into this transition as we go through these obstacles together.
