It was so nice to see some of you at school. I must admit ... it was kind of sad to go to school on a Monday and not see all of you in your seats. We are a community and we will support each other as we change to school at home. Hopefully we will use this blog to stay in touch with each other.
So are you ready for something cool? On Tuesday you will need to go to your Google Classroom and find the newest post in Math. It is called What Do You Do With a Problem? I have made my first YouTube video EVER!! I must confess, I was a little nervous and I think my voice sounds weird, but it was fun. I have a lot to learn to be a real YouTube genius but I figure that some of you will comment on the video and give me some tips.
When you get to Google Classroom, watch the intro video first. Then go and watch my YouTube video. Then ... here comes the fun ... you get to make a FlipGrid video. I have put an announcement under the YouTube assignment with a link to get to the FlipGrid prompt. To log into FlipGrid you will need to use your Google log-in. If anyone has trouble, you can e-mail me or send me a Remind message and I'll help you out.
So all of this talk about making videos and YouTube has me wondering. Do any of you have a favorite YouTube person or channel? I like watching the Tim Tracker because they are always doing videos about Walt Disney World. This would be a great time to share some of your favorites. Two ground rules though! It must be an appropriate channel for 4th graders. It also needs to not be a channel that uses inappropriate language or cussing. We wouldn't want to share something that uses bad language.
Have any of you had any experience being a YouTuber? Feel free to share your channel and your experiences down below too.
I hope that you all have a good Tuesday. Keep working on your Blizzard Bags. Make sure that you come back to our blog on Wednesday. You never know what will happen with all of you Fabulous Fourth Graders!
