Online teaching is hard. It’s really hard. To my fellow classroom teachers trying to navigate this without much to go on or follow, hang in there!
Today, my fifth grade teaching team and I talked about using the Chrome extension, Screencastify, to start journaling with our students from afar. We’re going to give it a try.
This morning, I watched a tutorial from Screencastify, put together a Google Slides presentation to share my examples, and just went for it!
Here’s my first attempt with it- it’s not perfect, and it’s not mass made for all. It’s from my heart, for my students, at this moment in time. Maybe it can give you some ideas for journaling with your students at this time. I encourage you to try making one on your own. You can do this! We all can. Good luck, friends!
