our top tips

  • Set a consistent schedule & stick with it - think about how you will share this with families

  • Simplify - you won't get through everything you would in the classroom, and that's okay!

  • Adapt classroom routines like Morning Meeting, birthdays, storytime, Fun Fridays, etc. for at home learning to continue to build community & relationships

  • Think: What are my students doing on the other side of the screen while I teach? Engage them with music, gestures, whiteboard work, using the chatbox, breakout rooms, etc.
