On my students' iPads, refresh is the issue.

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

Just select your avatar in the upper right-hand...

Basic Prodigy is free, and kids like it.

If you want to do something where they interact with you and the machine, what about Pear Deck or Nearpod? I prefer Pear Deck. I just like the look and...

Apps "don't work" for her child

I agree that this computer/screen time scenario isn't the best, but it's what I've got right now!

So, no, you don't get to find or use paper activities that you can do with/for your kid in lieu of...

Agree- take breaks Online

My fifth graders couldn't handle that ridiculous schedule. We are supposed to provide 4 hours of learning for grades 4-8. It can be a mix of synchronous and asynchronous. I've built in regular breaks...

big student privacy concerns

I feel lucky that our district isn't suggesting this scenario.

These days, many students are hyper-sensitive to correction, and some parents over-react to correction as if the teacher went out of...

Empowering Writers

It's been recommended here, before. I got a couple of free units in the Spring. I wish i could afford it.

one idea

We got here by overemphasizing constructivist pedagogy, even in mathematics. Students shouldn't have to "memorize."

Well, if you have no background knowledge with which to think, how are you...

I think about "behind"

as, well, we're all in this mess.

I agree about the push to younger grades of developmentally inappropriate
tasks. i've been spending almost three weeks reviewing place value with fifth graders....

Make sure to tell the students-

NOT to close the Meet. They need to open another tab or app switch depending on what they're using.

Problem solving approach

DreamBox activities are more "use your skill to figure out the puzzle."

I feel like kids who are new to the program might need to know that. There is a way that you can do a lesson as a teacher. I...

Using Teams

One critical piece is the identities that are set at the admin level.

Early on, our students were able to re-start old meetings without us. Check with your IT department that students are always...

Not a fan

I use other materials. Luckily, last year I had combo, so that was my excuse.

This year, not so much. I could get into the pedagogical weeks, but I'll just say that I will have to use some of the...

Hard without personal connection

I'm not sure what to offer without knowing the child, but I think children can often handle more honesty than adults give them credit for.

Keep up the "chat." Introduce a crafty project. Most...

We have the same rule about not putting it back in the library right away. We have to put it in a baggie for a week.

The only thing I can think of is that students can only look at the books with...

Don't forget the chin straps-

I agree with OPs that it's childish to not wear a mask.

The ones that bug me just as much are those who wear the mask under their chins. Are they imitating Jacob Marley, or are they thinking it...

I think you did a great job. Was painting one of those ask for forgiveness, rather than permission things? We would never be allowed to paint. Most of our walls are tackable surfaces anyway. I didn't...

Totally agree with Liberty's Kids

My students devour them when we do the Revolution in the spring. They watch more than I assign!

can't control everything

The bottom line is that we won't know if any assessments given remotely are valid. Students can easily look up answers. People who way that we shouldn't do tests that can be quickly researched are...

California has a sliding scale of required learning. I'm in the 4-8 category, 4 hours per day. It can be a mix of synchronous and asynchronous.

The downside is that our district is requiring us...
