Slice of Life 2020: Day 18
These are a few of the scenes from around here today. We had a boy reading, a boy playing trombone and a mom at her Zoom Video Class station. I have to admit I was nervous about pulling off the virtual classroom for my ninth grade English and Creative Writing classes. We had student presentations today, which meant that documents had to go up live, a tricky endeavor for a first-timer. Then, getting everyone’s audio and video straightened out was interesting and took awhile. I had one student go to the chiropractor during class and she just kept the class going on her phone the whole time. People are isolated and just need the interaction time.
After school, I had a crick in my neck like nobody’s business! Too much screen time. But it was novel this first day!
Grateful that my own kids were pretty independent and productive. Although they were getting grumpy by the end. That’s when I decided to take my camera out for a walk to capture some of the lovely spring scenes happening in my yard.
Glad for a chance to escape in nature away from the grumps and the tech.
