    How are you planning on working with small groups and multiple students from different classrooms everyday in this pandemic world?

    Normally, they would come to my classroom but this is not really a good option anymore… neither is me going to their classrooms or working with them in a hallway….

    This is definitely a tough one. I know at my school joining multiple classrooms will be prohibited.

    I’m still hoping to get students in the same classroom to collaborate on shared whiteboards.

    What have you brainstormed so far @marianne-aamodt ?

    Well…. I ordered some wipe-books – thinking that kids can still collaborate if they each have their own marker to add to the thinking.

    In SK, masks are being mandated from gr. 4 and up (in hallways or where 2 m distancing is not possible – ha – classrooms??) so that may make collaborating safer as well. Teachers move from room to room not kids.For my small groups of 3 or 4 kids who come to my room (not a homeroom), I think it’ll be hand sanitizer on the way in and on the way out plus we wear masks.

    I also want to become more knowledgeable re Desmos. Maybe my gr. 7/8 Math class can do their collaboration on their cells…

    Having class outdoors would be ok except SK winters are very brutal at times! That won’t work!!

    Any suggestions would be appreciated!
