"Some days you just have to play a toot sound during class to lighten the mood," said the teacher.
With millions of students and teachers learning remotely, many of the aspects of the classroom have changed. Screen time and eye strain are on the rise, relational needs are tough to meet, and many kids are longing to get back into the brick-and-mortar classroom.
Teachers across the country (and across the world) have met yet another challenge and have made remote learning as effective and enjoyable as humanly possible. (Who are we kidding? Teachers are superheroes! They're not bound by human limitations.)
Watch as one special teacher caused, erm ... navigated a situation when a strange noise was heard in her virtual classroom:
Emma Ginder, a third-grade teacher in Kansas, wrote on her Facebook post with the video, "Some days you just have to play a toot sound during class to lighten the mood. Way too good not to share. Also, I apologize for having the maturity of an 8 year old boy ".
The students' reaction was simply priceless. They clearly needed the levity. Through roaring laughter, Ginder's students blamed her for the noise. After a time, she was able to regain the classroom. She said that whoever was responsible was probably pretty embarrassed, so they should move on.
Teachers would love to be in the classroom with their students. Until that time, they're continuing to be superheroes in the virtual classroom. Help teachers out by encouraging children to keep their video feed on and participate in the class throughout the day.
