Teaching in 2020: Tips for Remote Learning

Distance teaching in 2020 is no picnic, but I'm sure you don't need me to tell you that.

Teachers need to work together - in some cases, it's a question of survival!  Again and again, I'm so impressed by how teachers are helping each other by sharing what's working for them in remote learning, even in the face of their own exhaustion and frustration.  Whether it's friend-to-friend, with a grade level team, or all over social media, the sharing is phenomenal!

So, trying to do my bit to help here and there, I thought I'd bring you a few tips for using technology with some of my non-digital resources.

I selected some tips for using math elimination riddles. I chose this kind of resource for two reasons.

1.   These riddles are available at all levels, K-4.
2.   Since they're one of my most popular categories, I figure that there's a good chance that many of you already have one or more of these sets.

Don't know what math elimination riddles are? Here's a close-up of one of the cards. 


SOOO much thinking on every card!

These tips are taken directly from teacher comments on TpT,  from real teachers who are out in the trenches making things work in this new world of teaching in 2020! My sincere thanks to these teachers and others who are so kind to take the time to share their ideas and help other teachers!

So, here are today's remote learning tips!

Do you use Seesaw? Here's a great idea from Gill H. This would also work well on your password-protected classroom website! Thanks, Gill!

Tip #2 is from Kimberly F. True confession: she left this comment on my Alphabet Riddles set. But it was so good that I just had to share it here, because it works with math riddles, too!  A riddle is an awesome way to focus attention at the beginning of a lesson. And since kids love riddles so much, the expectation of starting each meeting by solving a riddle together might be what you need to get your students logged in and ready to start on time! Thanks, Kimberly!
