21:09:44

From Peggy George : What a small world!!!!
21:09:48

21:13:02

From Paul W. Hankins : It certainly doesn't look like it looks right here? Who told us that we had to have our cameras on? Who encouraged us to be engaged for the hour? To use the back channel to communicate?
21:13:29

From Paul W. Hankins : And Dr. Ilko (Janet)!
21:14:19

From Peggy George : That sounds really interesting Christina!! Teaching writing through SMS!
21:14:42

21:14:59

From Paul W. Hankins : There was a whole series of MG books back in the day. TTFN by Lauren Myracle. All told in text lingo.

From Christina Cantrill : I was excited to show her how there is a whole genre of sms writing … kind of fun to go back into it myself briefly.
21:15:56

From Peggy George : Love it! Can you share any links about it?
21:17:13

From Paul W. Hankins : A fun extension might be to go back to William Steig's CDC? Steig gave us SHREK!, but these other little books help students to crack a little bit of "code" to get a single-panel cartoon that has synthesis with the message.
21:17:36

From Christina Cantrill : fascinating
21:18:15

From Christina Cantrill : important question; being seen

21:23:58

From Peggy George : that must be hard to tell a joke and not be able to see their reactions (even if they’re rolling their eyes)! :-)
21:24:06

From TERRY ELLIOTT : A gr8 dad joke.
21:24:26

From Jessica Hernandez Speer : We ALL see what you did there....
21:25:36

From Paul W. Hankins : There's a great book by David Lubar for middle school called PUNISHED. These two boys find themselves only able to speak in puns for a day. Problems ensue. The follow-up book is NUMBED wherein the boys find themselves unable to speak in anything but numbers.
21:25:54

From Janet Ilko : I have never seen it snow.

21:26:10

From Kiran Chaudhuri : omg
21:26:12

From Paul Allison : https://nowcomment.com/documents/pictures2020
21:26:12

From Paul W. Hankins : Someone just likened school as something of a "constant comfort."
21:26:20

From Janet Ilko : I have been in snow but never falling from the sky.
21:26:44

From Kiran Chaudhuri : Peggy got jokes.
21:27:03

From Peggy George : :-)
21:30:31

From Peggy George : https://nowcomment.com/documents/pictures2020
21:37:12

From Peggy George : Do you have to refresh your page to see new comments?
21:38:19

From Paul W. Hankins : My Chromebook is having a little bit of trouble logging onto NowComment tonight. I see what is happening here though.
21:38:35

From Peggy George : Thanks for explaining that Paul. I’ve added it to my library now. :-)
21:44:01

From Paul W. Hankins : The teachers of old were instructed to tend to these embers. Leave them in the pan for the next morning.
21:46:10

From Paul W. Hankins : Anne Lamott would describe this exercise with her one-inch picture frame. We only have to write in that frame. Images from books like Rylant's SOMETHING PERMANENT would be a way to bring history into this exercise.
21:47:03

From Paul W. Hankins : For Dawn, our third grade teacher friend, the wordless books would work well here. Or ZOOM and RE-ZOOM.
21:48:01

From Peggy George : I think the choice is so important! Maybe you could focus on a single month to narrow it down so it’s not too overwhelming.
21:49:09

From Peggy George : Those are great suggestions Paul!!
21:49:41

From Kiran Chaudhuri : https://www.heinemann.com/products/e10917.aspx

From Peggy George : I love how you organized that page Paul!!
21:56:40

From Jessica Hernandez Speer : I heard there was a fire in California or something...a rumor, probably...
21:59:22

From Peggy George : You could say if you find something interesting to you try exploring the tags below the photo.
22:00:40

From Peggy George : My inclination was to react emotionally to the photos—how they made me feel.
22:00:59

From Christina Cantrill : I agree with that - it’s very emotional for me too
22:02:02

From Anna Maine : I was just going to say if anybody comes up with discussion/writing prompts for this, I'd love to see those!
22:02:27

From Peggy George : Beautifully expressed Dawn!!!
22:02:39
