we tried to make a doc that isn't an exhaustive list but potentially a helpful starting point if anyone wants to use (we stopped at about 30, color-coded it) instead of a list of 150+ ideas, which we found overwhelming). https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1RF3C12Y8lsh7Yp2mrLfNrjns_7ObRATZiIZt9RgjrFc/edit#gid=0
Aaron Joiner
37:32
we made a modified circle time for YouTube. we might use the platform as a convenient place to educate parents on child development
Alexandra Magiera
37:34
really excited about this question here--we are wondering how accessible things are AND what families need!
Shawn Behnke
37:40
when I do an activity from home I ask the parents to send in pictures of what they have done at home, with the hopes of making a book that I can share of the children's activities, but honestly the parents are so busy that they are struggling to return pictures.

Bonnie Blagojevic
40:55
From Katie: https://web.seesaw.me/remote-learning
Shawn Behnke
40:57
I had a talk today with a coworker about how Zoom meetings with the whole class may be a challenge because the parents are working, using their tech for work or may not have tech. So uploading things that the children can view when they have access and time opportunity. so making books that include the children's work or pictures connects them to their classmates.
Cindy Borges
41:21
I was able to put together a website for the children and I can track, after I was able to go through the program first. Every student has a separate code to log in and I can check a dashboard to see where they are at in happynumbers,com for math.
Chip Donohue
41:29
Amazing how quickly educators at every level have had to become proficient in distance teaching and learning
Allison Gibson
41:38
We use Remind and we also made packets to send home to the families
Jessica Himmelstein
41:56
I am interested in receiving a step by step instruction on how to use Seesaw with my students
Shelly Hayes
42:01
I mailed out a lesson plan for each day this week . I also used the remind system and I used my private group to do activity with the kids.
Diane Bales
42:05
I know there are lots of rural families here in Georgia whose internet access is slow and unreliable. So real-time digital interaction isn't always possible. That requires even more creativity to keep people connected!
Julianne Zvalo-Martyn
42:08
Here's our ongoing document - I will add some of these ideas https://docs.google.com/document/d/171c1B0CZV_--1_D8L96vt2jnEyj5EnvjgX4NX4irxk8/edit?usp=sharing
Bonnie Blagojevic

45:49
We have remote learning Packets using recording videos on how each item could be used in many different ways. Such as connects can be used to make patterns, used as one on one corresponding. We have asked our parents to read and to let their children read to them. Booklets have been introduced.
Lee Summers
46:01
LOVE THIS WRITEREADER,,,,,
Cindy Borges
46:36
I would love to be able to introduce this to my families. Since we did create a book in class in the middle of the year. I have them now doing a daily idea, and put in a bunch of folded paper to create a book.
Mary Edwards
46:41
The children I teach are preschool age, so they would need help from their guardians.
Sonya McCrea
46:54
A Day At Home
Donna Mungo
47:02
Too cute! I love this
Bonnie Blagojevic
47:17
That would be great if parents could help their child take photos/make the book-creative together…
Julianne Zvalo-Martyn
47:40
Great idea!
Diane Bales
48:10
I love the idea of making stop-motion animation videos.

Holiday down time activity
Cathi Spirko
48:24

college students like to make stop motion movies, too
Alexandra Magiera
49:16
how are y'all tackling supporting families who have to be out at work and/or are working themselves? what does this look like for our students who may not have family with the time/space to support them right now (understandably so)?
Sandra O'Daniel
49:23
Book ideas for home: my day, who is in my family? Alphabet book, quantites, shapes, opposites, my adventures with (favorite toy)...

i teach Spanish immersion and parents don't speak it. they actually want kids to practice their Spanish and not rely on technology too much. what do you recommend?
Gwen Maffia
51:59
Awesome
Chip Donohue
52:10
I love how Katie smiles when seeing and hearing these examples - a wonderful metric for teacher engagement
Cindy Borges
52:14
Thank you love it
Lee Summers
52:19
THANK YOU GOT IT
Alexandra Magiera
52:21
Vera, are they okay with using tech to interact with other students? i.e. could kids set up time to interview each other and get to know one another--so they're practicing their Spanish but not via direct instruction on tech? (I don't know permissions for this works)
Alexandra Magiera
52:51
Or they could read/research something at home and set up time to share with another student what they are learning?
Lynn Hartle
53:59
Love the secret shake!
Faith Rogow
55:00
Do kids ever get to create the “Secret Shake” prompt?
