Day 3 Week 1: Learning from home

On Day 3 of Week 1, Trinity School faculty teams are busy, busy, busy.  Team meetings are more frequent than normal as we work to plan for Week 2 of distance learning.  What could be accomplished as we eat lunch or pass in the hall now calls for a scheduled meeting. It is tiring and so great! We are learning more and more each day. And, thinking about how mindset matters, check out my calendar and notice the locations for these team meetings. #Awesome

Watching school and learning from home is fun. You can check out more of what we share using #TrinityLearns.

How was it different than a normal day at school?

I saw more outcomes of our planning and work. I love seeing our students’ workspaces, recess activities, and experiments. I know the teachers appreciate seeing their plans in action. #Grateful

I moved more today than yesterday, but not enough. I did have lunch with my daughter, and we helped each other take a much-needed break.

Scout-puppy stayed near me for most of the day and attended a couple of team meetings, well, he peeked in to say hello.

How was it the same as a normal day at school?

#Joyful I spent the bulk of my day with teachers and my team.  I continue to express how grateful I am to work with such dedicated thoughtful teacher-leaders who are eager to plan new engaging, multi-sensory tasks.

More visitors came to my office. Thank you, Rhonda, Sarah, Marsha, Justin, Sarah M., Kate, and Brian for dropping by.

I also learned new things about Google Meet, Zoom, and Seesaw.

What will I need to do differently tomorrow? 

More movement is still needed. My door remains open, and I am taking more brain and physical breaks. I still need to set a timer to remind me to walk outside, take the stairs in our home, and stretch. I’m reading Super Better by Jane McGonigal, and I want to try to create a power-up for more movement.

I also want to cut a couple of screencasts for parents, teachers, and students.


I’m curious… How was your day the same? How was it different? What adjustments do you need to make?


And today: Super Better QUEST 19: What’s Your Number?
Today’s ratio: 3.5:1
