We had some technology glitches (mostly in 2nd hour for me) but almost all of my students got to class and I am so excited to work with them.
I decided that Wednesdays are going to be WACKY WEDNESDAYS so I wrote a blue colored wig and just acted like that was normal. Oh my gosh. The reactions were hilarious (both from my students and my colleagues!).
I had the students do a virtual check-in and I've already decided to see if there is another and better way I can engage them in those starting tomorrow. We also practiced with Flipgrid today and I am having so much fun listening to their videos.
Seriously, people who think middle schoolers aren't cool just aren't people for me. It's only been one day and I am just thrilled with this assignment.
Can't wait to see what the rest of the week brings us.
