Preparing with resources for social distancing may just help to make this truly “new” school year a remarkable one! Our mindset, vibrations, and desires for this year will set the tone. Adding tools to your teacher toolkit may also help you set the tone for this year!

For so many of us, the beginning of this new school year is filled with many unknowns. Brick and mortar teaching. Virtual or online teaching. A mixture, or hybrid, of the two. Regardless of which option you experience, it won’t be like any start that many of us have experienced before. I wrote a post on what classrooms might look like in the fall that you can click here to read.

Honestly, I think that I have found a way to detach from the situation. I’m genuinely entrusting God to lead me through this school year. All I can do is let go and allow Him to dictate all that happens.

As teachers, we are planners. So, let’s plan for the most successful version of 2020 that we can! Are you with me?

Here are some resources for social distancing from a few of my Teacher Friends that you may find very helpful. I am so excited to share this “round up” of tools that you may want to add to your personal teacher toolkit. Click on the images to purchase the resources that you love!

Behavior Expectations for Video Lessons

I created these in Google Slides to make it easy for teachers to share the posters online with their students. Open the resource in Google Sides, hit present, and use your screen sharing app or website to view each slide and share them with students. This is a great way to set the tone for the year in a positive way that helps to build ownership and class community.
