Distance Learning Mayhem

Hello Peeps, 
It has been awhile now and our current situation doesn't help. As a mother, wife, and teacher at home balancing all three and more, I feel like I have been thrust into a bullet-like roller coaster that has no end. I go through moments of anxiety, frustration, tranquility, peace, happiness all blended together and all in one day. I try to remind myself that no matter what our current situation might be, we need to stay positive, clam, and do the best we can at the moment. 

Today I wanted to share with you about an amazing website I recently started using with my kiddos!
Flipgrid | Empower Every Voice
"Flipgrid is a website that allows teachers to create "grids" to facilitate video discussions. Each grid is like a message board where teachers can pose questions, called "topics," and their students can post video responses that appear in a tiled grid display."

Students respond to a question you post via video right on the site. Students can then respond to each other and make comments. This is a great outlet to help kids think through their responses, to formulate ideas, presenting, and listening and speaking. 

It is a straight forward setup and they also provide a help link if you get stuck- not that you would 😉. When students posts their responses via video, I always find myself having so much fun watching them. Their little personalities come through-and it makes me feel like we are still in the classroom together. 

Once you join, come back and let me know how it went.
