Teaching And Learning At Home!

Hello there!  Thank you for stopping in for a visit!  Today I'm delighted to link up with Andrea from Momfessionals and Erika from A Little Bit of Everything for Friday Favorites!

At-Home Learning

Every day I'm learning more about Google Classroom!  I have a routine now, and this is how I assign the students' work every day:


I'm very happy with Storylineonline because they offer quality literature read by brilliant readers as well as before and after reading activities.  If I can't find a book on this web site, I'll head to You Tube where I can often find a story read by the author ~ which is such an amazing opportunity!  If I use these books, I always convert the link on safeyoutube.net to make sure there are no ads.  Here is an example of what I do for at-home reading:

The Silent Patient by [Alex Michaelides]
Books to Read

I just finished this book, The Silent Patient, and my husband read the same book in two days because he couldn't put it down.  You can click on the cover to read more at Amazon.

The Dutch House: A Novel by [Ann Patchett]
Right now I'm reading The Dutch House
which I'm thoroughly enjoying.  I just 
love books by Ann Patchett!  Her writing is tremendous and descriptive.  I love the characters in this book ~ that's Maeve on the cover!

Going on a Virtual Time Machine Tour!

Wednesday was World Art Day, and I assigned a virtual visit to the Metropolitan Museum of Art.

Of course, I had to go on the visit myself to check it out first, and look at this amazing dress that is on exhibit!

Now For An Easter Time Tour!

That is me on the left when I was about 10 years old.  My younger sister, Nancy, is in the middle, and my younger brother, Brendan, is to the right.  I'm guessing the year is about 1970.  My mother used to sew our clothes and enjoyed making matching outfits for me and my sister.

  1. Hi Susan! I think you could totally rock a Campbell's Soup dress! Your Google Classroom feed looks much more cheerful than mine! I loved reading about what you're doing. Thanks for the inspiration.

  2. Following up on my last comment. The Dutch House is on hold from my library so I can read it. Also, I took your advice and used Storyline Online for some reading assignments. Thanks for the great advice.
