Since we’re officially continuing remote learning for the rest of the 2019-2020 school year, my new goal is to begin each forthcoming Literacy Links post with a remote learning instructional resource. I’ll make a video lesson and include all of the necessary resources to share with students. WOO HOO! This week’s lesson is for science: How to Make a Scientific Illustration. It comes with a video lesson, anchor chart, and virtual classroom library. I was so inspired by Clare Landrigan’s Virtual Classroom Library idea that I created a virtual bin around the theme “Think Like a Scientist”.
Here is this week’s roundup of literacy links for some quick inspiration, tips, and refreshment:
- Writing Choice Board
- Can’t wait to check out this new-to-me series!
- Clare Landrigan’s ongoing collection of free, digital books
- Rick Wormeli shares his thoughts on grading and assessment during and after remote learning in this podcast
- Daily writing prompts organized by month from We Are Teachers
- TCRWP is offering all sorts of virtual PD – I’ve signed up for one and have two more on my list!
- Mental health break – A book for children of healthcare workers during the COVID-19 crisis written by a son and father from near my City of Medicine hometown, Durham, North Carolina
