That sounds like a really cool lesson.

My second period worked together today and each group completed the figurative language escape room I assigned for today’s standard practice. It was an amazing moment for us!

We 'took a break' today. No new assignments and had a 'check in' with each students. They really appreciated the break and check in. I can't imagine what they are going through. One student has to leave for 8 weeks to set up the new family business, another is lonely, another their parent just got deported. :(

Staying in denial for the day.

Attendance is higher now than it was at the beginning of the year, so I did a class reset and had students reflect on how first quarter went, then make goals for 2nd quarter. Most of my students actually reflected on how they did and how seriously they were actually taking virtual learning. Many of them acknowledged that they were not trying their best and had not earned high grades for the first quarter. Goals for 2nd quarter ranged from bringing grades up to honor roll status to making sure they came to all classes on time each day and turned assignments in on time.

I posted an assignment and every kid turned it in! Fingers crossed it starts a trend.

Looking for (adaptive, preferably) educational technology for ELA to be used in classrooms as both enrichment for students identified as gifted as well as re-teaching, offering helpful support for students who struggle. Has anyone found anything that does both well? Looking especially for a tool that teachers can get behind and that students enjoy/find easy to use. What do you love? What do you hate? This would be targeted to grades 1-6 primarily, but it needs a high ceiling.

“If you’re not sweating by first hour, you’re not teaching”, “Don’t let me walk in the room and see you a$$ sitting down”, “ You should leave everyday exhausted” just a few quotes from our new academic supervisor.
