Managing the Merry-Go-Round: Virtual, Hybrid, In Person, REPEAT!

Hello everyone!  Today I am going to explain how you can efficiently switch back and forth from in person to virtual learning to Hybrid, etc., and then back again, etc.  I will also explain how I managed hybrid instruction as well.  This was in Transitional Kindergarten (TK), but I believe that the ideas should apply to any elementary grade level.  At the time I taught TK, the students needed to turn five by December 2 in order to start school. In my district, families may choose to Zoom from home or send the children in for in person school, and we were required to teach both groups concurrently .  We sent home printed packets for the children to use at home every other week, and had to post it online, too! Children often spent unexpected days at home when they were scheduled to be at school, and this is how I managed this situation.   A Little More Background Info In the district where I taught in Southern CA, we taught virtually for nearly the entire school year, from August 26, 20
