I would like to recommend . BoomWriter offers a variety of tools, features, and resources that lets teachers conduct fiction, nonfiction, and vocabulary-focused writing assignments inspiring students to write on any subject. I also integrates easily with existing curriculum.

Hi there!

I've come across a great resource that I believe can be extremely beneficial for remote learning:
This site offers a wide range of materials specifically designed to support learning at home.

From worksheets to lesson plans, they provide a wealth of resources for various grade levels and subjects. I've personally found it to be a valuable tool for engaging my students and enhancing their remote learning experience.

My school system is hybrid.

Students were given a choice of coming back to school full-time or, enrolling in a online educational learning platform paid for by our system. If students’ families chose the online distance learning option, they were required to stick with that option for the entire 1st semester, they are not allowed to flip-flop in and out.

I'm in a small private school.

We are in our 12th week of in-person learning. We have had to send one grade home for 2 weeks, due to a direct exposure, and we constantly have students zooming in to in-person classes, because they are quarantining for one reason or another. It's been challenging, but it could be worse!

I am also in a small school. We have been in-person since the beginning of the year. Things are going great and we haven't had a positive case yet, knock on wood!

Virtual and F2F is hard.

I’m tired all the time from rebuilding lessons we are to share from my fellow teachers who do jot teach virtually. They have our lessons. I do not know how to help them understand that a page full of links is not a virtual lesson. Then helping students try to complete lessons that they are not completing is so hard. I’m on the phone more than I am teaching. Would love some help and guidance.

I use OneNote for each student to provide them with all the work they must complete. I also use flipgrid which I find the students can communicate their messages, and receive replies from others. It becomes a thread of wonderful conversations. I base these discussions on what we are learning.

What kind of online learning materials are teachers for elementary school students using? I have parents that are working and are concerned this process will be the same time and energy requirement as Home Schooling. Any thoughts or advice on how to ease that concern? Any resources you know of that help with this?
