Here is me (above) with my mind exploding! I have hundreds of lessons that I've created from scratch over my decades of teaching. Teachers have been asking me how I do this or that for years. The answers are scattered around on my blog, social media, and in my presentations. It's time to package up my lessons and share them completely and neatly. Please fill out this quick form (or the button below) if you want to be kept posted.

One year ago the school buildings closed. We were told to go home on that Friday the 13th with no immediate plan to return. I remember chatting about it with my pod and asking them what they thought of learning from home. I heard,
"I think it will mean I have more time to play"
"I'll be able to learn side by side with my siblings"
"I hope grandma will tutor me"
I looked at their faces and thought...is this it? Is this our last time together this school year? Is so, then, what can I give them? What can I say to help them transition?
I've been thinking about layering an illustration of the character from a story over the text from the book. This digital collage demonstrates how the imagination and the author work together to help the a picture emerge from the pages.
I turned my Emotional Robots showing a full range of feelings into a poster set for display in the classroom as a mood meter and a color wheel combined. They also are set up with augmented reality so the robots can express themselves even more through animation using the free AR app, Eyejack. The six poster set is available on TpT here.
