    I am glad that the news highlighted the kids views. I am a third grade teacher, as well. This digital learning is really difficult for all involved. I feel especially saddened for those who deal with at home domestic abuse or children who are being left alone with younger siblings.

    DO NOT POINT THE CAMERA AT YOUR CHILD'S FACE DURING DISTANCE LEARNING. POINT IT AT THE DESK, SHOWING ONLY THEIR HANDS TO VERIFY THEY ARE PRESENT. THERE IS NO SECURE INTERNET CONNECTION. EVERY INTERNET SESSION IS GLOBAL. VISIT FREEDOMTAKER.COM TO LEARN HOW TO INTERACT WITH THE SCHOOL SYSTEM AND CPS IF THEY COME FOR YOUR CHILD. PROTECT YOUR CHILDREN. GOD BLESS.

    This is a good video for me to watch to make sure I don't talk so much when teaching online. Sometimes teachers are so yappy and it's no wonder some children get so bored and distracted. You may sound exciting and fun to yourself but teachers need to monitor themselves as well and pause once in awhile and let the students talk and not interrupt them or interrogate them so much.

    All I could concentrate on was the cabinet doors behind the teacher above the doorway that were 30 feet high…. what are those for?! 🤣🤣

    When my own boy is in 1st grade, he was chosen for reading support services. This exceptional reading technique has really helped a lot in enhancing the learning capabilities of my young man although he is on grade level and his development truly astonished his reading instructor. It might be much better if the trainer in school had this reading guide to employ. Get this reading guide on Google. The reading guide’s name is Elena Readoρiz
    thanks

    I love the idea of flexible seating! This is the 1st time I have heard of it. What an amazing idea to give the kids freedom to pick where they sit as long as they can focus and get their work done. Love it! Thank you for this video. My little one starts kindergarten / distance learning on 8/24 so this info has been really helpful.
