Heartwarming School Projects from Michelson Elementary

Posted by: thepinetree on 04/21/2020 04:17 PM
Murphys, CA...We are 3rd grade teachers at Michelson Elementary in Murphys, and we wanted to share a recent experience we had in our online Google Classroom. We are hoping to spread some gratitude and cheer with a heartfelt project we have recently done. Switching to online learning (on March 16) has been hard on our students for so many reasons, but the most prevalent is that they do not get to see their friends and learn through the hands on, discussion-based methods that we are so accustomed to. To ease this social sadness, we have been hosting daily Google Meets to catch up, visit, and teach simple lessons. On Fridays, we've been trying to meet up, relax, and do a fun activity together. This week we decided to draw health workers and make thank you cards.
