I will be presenting “Google Presentation Sub Plans” at the Global Math Department “My Favorite Ideas” TONIGHT at 9pm EST (Tuesday, December 4th). “My Favorite Ideas” is where several teachers share some of their favorite things they do in the classroom.
I had to call in sick last week for the first time in 2 1/2 years, and I wasn’t even sick! My poor baby boy had the stomach bug, so I stayed home to take care of him. I haven’t used sick days in the past because there is nothing I hate more than being absent, and mostly because of the dreaded sub plans. I had my lessons all planned the day I had to call in sick last week. But that did not matter. Because it still takes forever to type up what you do in your head all day long, for a substitute.
Luckily, my 7th graders are in the middle of a Google Presentation Word Problem Project. They are all creating slides and writing word problems in a single Google Presentation. I was out, but I was able to see then work and conference with them the entire class period from home. It was fabulous! And, I didn’t lose a day of class. To learn more about it, please come to Global Math Department “My Favorite Ideas” tonight at 9pm EST. I’m going on right at 9:05 – so don’t be late!
