Flashback Friday Featuring Flipgrid!

(Insert wavy time-travel lines)

A few weeks ago was the Jewish holiday of Purim.  Purim is a very fun holiday for all, especially adults who are actually encouraged to imbibe.  (Crazy, I know!)  There are some deep rooted traditions to Purim, one of them being partaking in a chanting of the Megillah.

For Purim, the fifth grade usually travels to one of the Jewish senior residences nearby to chant Megillah.  Covid made that festive tradition impossible this year.  But we didn't let that stop us from a fantastic Megillah reading!  How, you ask?

Flipgrid, of course!

All the fifth graders still got to participate in chanting Megillah.  Dressed in costumes, in the safety of their own homes, they read their parts with gusto onto Flipgrid.  From there, each class was compiled into a MixTape and shared with the senior home.

(P.S.  It's only about 20 minutes long, not 5.6 hours!)
