Video Support for All šŸŽ„

Miss Graves, Hilliard Elementary School, supports her parents and students each week. She uploads a short video to Google Drive and shares the link with her students' parents via Remind.

Her videos include a review of the previous week's content and helpful hints for the upcoming week's content. Ms. Graves says, "I have had great success with keeping in touch with parents and students through Remind and weekly video chats during this time." Check out one of her videos below!

Distance Learning Tip

Every Sunday night, Mrs. Harter and her children, Teagan and Taryn, review their work for the upcoming week. Then, they write each assignment on cards to be posted on their TO-DO chart. This keeps the girls organized, while Mrs. Harter is able to teach her own class of 7th graders at Callahan Middle School. Her girls are loving the independence of being able to choose their assignments throughout the week. Great idea!

My dog keeps me sane.

A Musical Pirate šŸŽ¶
