Digital Learning: Teachers Working From Home.

Hey all!

So , as a teacher, the epidemic of covid-19/Corona virus is challenging teachers all over the world to get creative with teaching and learning. As a Spanish teacher, I wanted to quickly come on here to give some suggestions for teachers who are having a hard time with digital learning or need some quick tips. Below, I wrote 3 suggestions for teachers during this time.

So let's quickly leap into some suggestions and tips to help with teaching and learning. We want out students to continue learning productively!

1. Try making sure assignments are not too long. 

To often teachers aren't thinking about the situations of students in their home life. At school, we can give longer assignments, but at home we need to be aware that students may only have one device to do online assignments, while also having siblings or parents that also need to use that device. Or it might be that students only have a tablet or phone to use. So be aware that giving assignments in one day that take too long just isn't logical.

2. Try recording lessons. Again, don't make the videos too long. 15 minutes or less.

Recording lessons is something I think is essential during this time. One it will be nice for students to see your face and two it's good to hear someone explain a concept. Students will definitely appreciate it. Also the lesson doesn't have to be you.  You can post a short video from YouTube or some other site that has a lesson on the topic you're teaching. Just make sure students have something they can listen to in order to learn. Remember we have students that learn in different ways.  

3. Try to meet with students digitally.

Apps like Zoom make it possible to meet with students virtually. Conduct a class online using Zoom to teach or talk with students. This is just another way we can all stay connected. 

Hopefully these tips are helpful. I might do another post about some good sites and resources for teachers and particularly for language teachers.

Review of Colourpop Garden Variety Palette

Many makeup brands have been going crazy with so many new makeup release and today I'm giving my quick opinion on the newish Colourpop Garden Variety palette. Since this palette released a few weeks ago, Colourpop has already released two other collections, so I'm a little behind, but I wanted to share my opinion on the Garden Variety palette since I actually bought this palette myself and wanted to review it. So let's get into my opinion and quick review: First some.... Basic Information: Price - $20 Pans - 15 eyeshadows Formulas - mattes, metallics, and Colourpop's super shock formula Net Weight - 17g (.6 oz) Shades: neutrals, oranges, corals, golds, purples, greens, and browns My Opinion: Quality - The quality is the usual quality for Colourpop. Colourpop is one of my favorite brands and has a very good formula. On top of being affordable, they also have a very good formula. This palette is no exception, it has a good formula and I had no issues blending the shadows.

Book! - Let's talk about books and reading 2021

 Hey everyone! It's been awhile since my last blog post.... But here I am again!  So today I'm going to be listing off some good and not so good books I've been reading so far into 2021. If you're interested, just keep on reading  Some books I've read so far this year worth missing: Every Heart a Doorway by Seanan McGuire    *** - 3 stars out of 5 The most recent book I have finished, this book explores what happens to those students who find doorways to other worlds, and what really happens when they come back to the "real" world. A very interesting concept, I enjoyed most of the characters and the writing, but felt the story to be a bit incomplete, but still think it's worth checking out, which is why it gets a 3 out of 5 rating.  The Maze Runner series - The Maze Runner, The Scorch Trails, and The Death Cure by James Dashner **** 4 stars out of 5 I'm glad I read this series this year. I finished all three books in February and I really enjoyed t
