Quarantine has us all trying something new. From house projects, to working out more (not me), to cooking and making our own bread, having time during this pandemic to just be home has caused most of us to try something that has been on our neverending to-do list. For me, I had 2 quarantine goals: learn the ukulele and finally record a podcast. I must say, I am pretty proud of myself for accomplishing both. I can jam out to a few songs on my uke, AND have season 1 of the Wednesday With Whitney podcast recorded.
One of my favorite episodes is the episode about Virtual Learning. It is full of real, honest thoughts and an amazing guest who is a Reading Specialist and gives us tips for teaching reading virtually. Below are the show notes, check them out and tune in on your favorite podcast app!
