Virtual Learning Resources

Below, you will find a list of virtual learning resources that you can use to continue your education in the area of Language Arts. For each resource, I have included a brief description, login information, a link to the resource, and (in some cases) a brief video tutorial. I may add to this list as time goes on, so continue to check in.

Flipgrid - Home | Facebook
Description: Flipgrid is a space where I will be posting a weekly prompt for my students to respond to. I'm going to have all my students join on one grid together rather than break it down by class. I like this resource because I get to hear their voices and see their faces as they respond to the weekly prompts and I do miss seeing their faces!
