We’re in a peculiar time.
Mandatory distancing and isolation has created new realities for the planet’s population.
As people scramble to develop new norms teachers are busy managing their own families and supporting their students in new ways.
New ways include YouTube, Zoom, SeeSaw, and Google Classroom.
Below are a few videos I’ve produced or supported to help the elementary classes at school.
The last three are my favourite…
First is a school staff compilation to remind the school community we are #TogetherApart – produced by Mme. Labrosse and fed to families via Twitter.
An alternative, cross curricular Grade 3 fractions lesson:
Kindergarten inquiry about seeds:
Kindergarten inquiry about trees and what lies underground:
Kindergarten inquiry about compost and soil (stinky gross alert!!):
They’re fun to produce.
And help students remember #WeMissYou.
Smile as best you can!
