- Establishing a system for communicating with families for the upcoming school year. (I use Seesaw!)
- What programs and websites worked well for you and your students?
- Which skills do you want to prioritize teaching so that students will be prepared for a possible school closure? (i.e. logging into websites, using Google Classroom/Seesaw ect)
- What will you continue to incorporate into your classroom next school year?
- If you haven’t already, debrief with your teammates and discuss how you will work together next year to be prepared.
Speaking of TpT, you might be having a difficult time deciding what, if anything, you should be prepping for the fall. Choose resources that can easily translate from classroom to home learning. Consider the logistics of students not being able to share learning materials, cutting down on paper copies, having tools that can be easily packed up and sent home for use.

I’ve also started using my FitBit every day and even joined a StepBet. It’s an app where you can bet some $ and win for meeting your personal step goals! It’s been so motivating and helped me get my tush off the couch which has resulted in more energy and feeling better overall! Read a book, take a nap, watch Netflix, work in your garden. Do whatever you can to take your mind off school and avoid worrying about next year. It’s tough–for sure–but necessary.
