πŸ’•Reyes Family Fire Relief Fund

Hello to everyoneπŸ’•πŸ’•πŸ’•πŸ’•πŸ’•


I just wanted to thank everyone who has been reaching out to us since last Tuesday.  Yes, my family and I are safe and we still have a house!  The fires in Southern Oregon have decimated our community. 


So much loss, trauma, and tragedy.


I am reaching out and sharing a Go Fund Me page for 3 families I have the honor of knowing.  I have taught their children over the years and watched their successes and accomplishments.  In the blink of an eye all was lost as their trailers and belongs burnt to the ground.

If you can, please share this 'Go Fund Me page' on your social media, email or blogs.


The smallest donations are appreciated.


I would love to offer some hope to these 3 families as they struggle through the unthinkable.

πŸ“šπŸ“š ZOOM and Online Distance Learning Classroom Rules and Etiquette πŸ“šπŸ“š

 πŸ“šπŸ“š ZOOM and Online Distance Learning Classroom Rules and Etiquette  πŸ“šπŸ“š


Hello everyone!

Many of us are getting ready for Distance Learning.  We know that both students and teachers reap the rewards when best practices are used.  Therefore, I decided to write down some Best Practices for Distance Learning that I wanted to remember and engage in.  I thought I would share my list with you!




My Best Practices in Distance Learning

 

·     Explicitly teach expectations and engagement

·     Describe expectations for online participation, communication, and etiquette

·     Get students into the habit of participating

·     Make online learning as interactive as possible

·     Balance synchronous and asynchronous learning

·     Give students choices

·     Engage students with a variety of ways to learn

·     Change your background each week

·     Only use 4 or 5 activities so kids know what to do

These are some of mine (so far).  I would love to hear some of yours!

ZOOM and Online Distant Learning Classroom Rules and Etiquette
Are you ready to start up your Distance Learning Classroom this fall?

We are here to help!  This colorful poster is engaging to use with your students to teach and review proper Zoom etiquette during the first weeks of school and beyond!
Maintain your classroom expectations using this engaging online poster. 

This set includes 5 posters each with a different center picture that will help you consistently monitor and practice the online etiquette of your students. You can either send this out to your students before you start your lessons as a reminder or display it as you start your daily Zoom lessons as a review.

Perfect for all distance learning platforms!

Need an ELD pacing guide?



This one is free!

As many of you know, I am a K-5 ELD teacher in Ashland, Oregon.  For many years I did workshops throughout my state for ELD teachers.  Many ELD teachers asked me for a pacing guide so I made this. 

 

Each month has a combination of ELD units and/or grammar components essential for English learners. Again choose some or all of what I have here. Feel free to mix it up to suit you!

 

If I have a product that contains all or parts of the language I teach during that month I have listed it. All resource images are click-able links for your convenience. Just click on the image you want to see and it will take you to my TPT store.  I use these products according to language level more than grade level.  Each column represents a language level.  The column has language grammar, forms and functions I teach for that level.  Under the column heading I list products I use to teach those language components.  Some of the products may have a grade level on it, but I have used it at that language level based on the language I am teaching students at that level.

 

Happy Teaching!
