As I worked on the Online learning module, I was overwhelmed with all the information that I had to go through. I was already thinking, how can we properly coordinate planning as a team with some in China and others in different parts of the world. Collaboration will be vital to ensure our success as a kindergarten team as well as for the students. We all need to be on the same page as we go through the challenges on online learning and partnered instruction. Last semester, I was successful with my team because we delegated some of the planning and posting of activities on Seesaw. I also made it a point to give feedback to kids work as soon as I could so they know that I acknowledged the hard work they did for the day. With the help of other members in my team, I was also successful with running reading groups and meeting with students individually. My biggest challenge was some students would not attend at their given time to work with me online and taking anecdotal notes for what the students have worked on for that day.
As we begin the school year, I would like to focus on collaboration. I will need to establish some agreements with my IP as well as my TA so that we are all on the same page as we run our class together. There are many bits and pieces to running a class so I will need to be proactive with my IP and TA.
