Going F2F full time

Our school board voted to move from hybrid to full time F2F.

Subasaurus- Yes!

Really, I have nothing much more to add. While technology can be amazing (I read on a Kindle when I have to, use digital Breakouts with my students, use Google Classroom , enjoy robots, ....), it...

Weekly engagement forms

Yes, SoDone! The unnecessary paperwork is ridiculous.

In CA, we have to do forms weekly that track "student engagement." We're doing our jobs, trying to deliver both in-person (hybrid model) and...

I teach fifth and/or sixth, depending on the year.

For group projects or simulations, I have students write a defense of grade detailing what grade they believe they earned, and what they did to...

Have sewed for a job

I started when I was in the primary grades doing hand-sewn Barbie outfits for my sister's Barbies.

My first lesson on a machine was with Mom. She made me rip a seam before letting me touch the...

Google Classroom "Turn In"

Students can make it look like they've done something (at least to their parents who don't know any better). I've been over that with parents. "Turn In" doesn't guarantee that something was actually...

Once around a parking lot in AZ

We were driving a car to my big brother. I helped.

My current car is a manual. It was very hard to find, and I love it.

Had to make "just in case" packets

We made up 3 packets, 10 days of work each, for each grade level. We piggy-backed off each other and did minor customization. They are kept in the office in case of illness during the pandemic.

person DH's family knew

maiden name- Mary Love
married name Mary Love Dick

Not kidding- absolutely true. For obvious reasons, she didn't do the maiden-married thing that was common at the time.

Keep it simple

With form validation, I have used the first letter. Specify that the student enters with no spaces and all capitals, like UDRL.

I don't know if your school has any funds for Breakout EDU, a...

Khan Academy?

You can set up a course in Khan Academy. The student could complete the course independently with check-ins and supplemental projects.

Given all the extra we're doing right now, I think using free...

Get paid in free books

I don't know if they let you keep the books you review. I do NetGalley- free e-books, which I get to keep. It's great for getting classroom books. Some of my most popular read alouds came from...

Worn by students and construction workers

We have a building being built in the middle of two of our existing buildings. The construction workers wear gaiters when they walk next to the school building. A couple of my students wear them....

I don't eat much bread, but when I do, I eat Trader Joe's cinnamon raisin or white GF bread.

A tip with GF breads is to always toast it. It crumbles more easily than other breads, and it holds...

Parent reading issue?

I have dealt with a parent in the past who couldn't read. I wonder if the parent's reading skills are the issue with choosing the wrong bag. It might be overkill, but since you're labeling anyway,...

I'm reading between the lines- conservative Christian?

If so- The Chronicles of Narnia (C.S.Lewis, Christian religious allegory)

We are required to be at school. It's weird because we stay isolated in our classrooms and rarely see anyone else.

We're phasing in kids. On Monday, everyone will be F2F in an AM/PM hybrid...

And... open-mouthed chewing

It's really not that hard to get on a schedule. I hate the eating during Online class, too. At least some of my students have gotten savvy enough to turn off their cameras.<!--eyebrow-->

Will retire out of state

We're years away, but DH and I have already decided to move out of state when someday comes.

Don't double plan

I don't see how you can possibly do separate plans for in-person and virtual and still keep your sanity.

Keep your platforms and sites simple. Stick to only a few.

You may have to tweak your...

You can also sign in to GC on your device as the student. I've done that to make how-to videos.
