With my students tomorrow. How long should I Zoom and what can I do with them as a fun activity? My principal wants to join us as well...I"m nervous.

Any ideas would be great!

I’ve can you make a game on Kahoot that they can play? I’ve done kahoot challenges for my students online. During the school day I do content related challenges, but I also do just for fun ones like Disney or Harry Potter.

Here is a link to Zoom ideas for teachers. I would make sure the time is structured so its not a free for all and be sure to discuss online etiquette. Good luck.

What age group? I would make good use of the “mute all” button, at least at first because otherwise it is crazy. Go over how to use zoom and expectations of being quiet and not interrupting each other.

You could start with a show and tell—share one thing they’ve been up to while out of school, show a project, etc.

I held my first Zoom meeting today. We simply checked in with each other, sang Happy Birthday to a classmate, and greeted one another.

Several things I learned:
Log in early
Stay logged in after you end the meeting (one child got in an hour later)
Use the time to help students navigate around the computer if necessary
Enjoy it!

I’ve done a couple of zoom meetings

With my first graders. It is chaotic until they learn the rules:
  • Raise your hand-just like in class.
  • Listen while someone is speaking.
  • Be respectful.
The first time, we went over guidelines, read a story and took turns talking about what they’re doing. The second one, we did show and tell and created a story together, using some stuffed animals I had. The next time, they are going to bring a picture they’ve drawn.
Be sure to record your meetings, in case you need to document anything. A mom sent me a link to an article that tells how to keep trolls from joining your meeting uninvited. I’ll try to post that link.

What age group? My fifth graders last about 40-50 minutes before they are *done* and that's with just doing games and allowing time for chatting.

I can keep their attention for a lesson for about 15 minutes right now; I'm going to work on stamina. They will listen to a read aloud for about 30 minutes.

The lesson was Zoom etiquette and basically a "back to basics" as though it were September, establishing routines and protocols.

Zoom with students

I'm feeling a bit more confident as I go. Mute them all and don't allow them to unmute themselves - that's a choice you can make. I've done a virtual field trip, which went pretty well. One of my coworkers is having the kids read a story aloud (they've got the book at home). I share my screen and then unmute them one at a time to call on them. They can raise their hand virtually on Zoom but most of mine are still physically raising them. Keep an eye on the chat, too. Good luck, I'm finding that my students love seeing each other.

We play Pictionary and charades and sometimes have dance parties.

I gather I will send out an email with my behavior expectations and what we will be playing. Our principal will join in so this will be fun and interesting too. I gather we can each discuss what they do daily and then I'll play a game of Scavenger hunt, like find something red in the house, find something small, etc.

I had 3 comment on my stream on Googleclassroom that they will attend my Zoom meeting but not sure if others will join. I will send out an email again.

Hopefully this will work.

Virual Field Trip

I was wondering how you did a virtual field trip on Zoom?
That does sound like a great way to engage the kids.
TIA

For our first one we just did a check in and I taught them how to use a few of the things on zoom. I told them about muting, raising hands, etc. They were just so happy to see each other! The second one we sang happy birthday to a classmate and they all shared something that they've been doing or has happened (lots of loose/lost teeth ).

Virtual Field Trip

Hi Bella Flower. I shared my screen on Zoom, which allows all of the students to see my screen. I had pre-opened the site I needed - there are a ton of museums, historical places, cities, etc. that offer a virtual version. Then I talked them through the place as I moved around in the space. I kept them all muted but occasionally stopped and checked the 'chat' for questions or comments and sometimes called on individuals that had raised their hands. I hope this answers your question!
