Zoom Live Lesson Form

We know you have started live lessons and we are excited to see all the amazing things you are doing. Use this hyperlink to access the document PS Live & Recorded Lessons. Log your live lesson(s) schedule. We know many of you store recorded lessons in different areas of your individual or grade level folders. Share where you store your recorded lessons. There is a tab for each HR teacher and additional tabs for ESOL, EIP, IRR, and Specialists.


The document has an “example” tab.

Example 1: If you teach the same subject the same day or days using a recurring Zoom link.


Example 2: If you teach subjects on the same day OR different day using a new Zoom link every time.


Example 3: Ms. Vogt completed her tab for this week.


The document allows administration and coaches one stop access to everyone’s lessons. We will add the link to Mac’s Memo so you may update the document as your lessons progress or as links change. Do not hesitate to ask any questions.

Coaches Corner

Technology Tip: Apple Clips

Clips is an FREE iOS app (rated 4+) designed for making and sharing short-form videos with with text, effects, graphics, and more. You add content by recording it on the spot or grab a video clip or photo from your library. Live Titles let you easily create animated captions just by talking as you record using Siri speech to text conversion. You can choose from a variety of styles, all perfectly sequenced to the sound of your voice. This is a super fun and easy way to make videos! Look at my silly examples below!

Choice Board Tip from Ms. Watts

I wanted to share a reading choice board I created with various at-home activities that I think could work for all grades. I am sending the PDF version without the class code for Get Epic as well as a Word Doc version in case teachers would like to add their Get Epic class code like I did. (To do so, all they would need to do would be to click inside the text box where it says class code and change the code from my code to theirs!) I just wanted to share in case it would be helpful for anyone trying to reinvent the wheel!
