**I have been thinking that it would be a good idea to start making special snack a little more healthy/not always sweets. We could leave the sweets for birthdays. What do you guys think? Maybe we could get it going after this coming Friday.**
Check Out Padlet!
I am mainly using Padlet to organize videos for the students and you to watch! There are sections for ELA, Math, Science, Social Studies, and Cool Stuff.
There will be videos that explain or show concepts that we have been reviewing in class, as well as videos that I create to help the students understand the content and for you guys see how I am teaching/explaining/modeling a concept.
