Take Note!

So much is different this year because of COVID, and yet at the same time, so much is the same.

Take, for instance, book clubs.  Pretty much every grade hosts a variety of book clubs throughout the year.  Right now, fourth grade is in the middle of book clubs on pioneers.  Usually, after each "section" of reading (which the kids determine in their group) the kids gather to take and share notes, and discuss the reading.

Since they can't necessarily do that in person, it's Google to the rescue!

Being fourth graders, they've had more than a year of Google experience, and are quite secure in their basic skills, including working collaboratively on a doc.  I just happened to peek in on a group (thank you GoGuardian!) and saw this example of three members adding their notes at the same time.

When I was in fourth grade, I had a hard time drawing on a poster with three other people, but these kids?  My how times have changed!
