Virtual Class Playdate, Take 1! #SOLC20 #SOL20

class playdate


I just attended a most unusual play date. One of my wonderful parents took the initiative to set up a daily 1:00 playdate via Zoom with my Kindergarten class. I am invited, but she’s going to take the lead. It was loud, chaotic, and I eventually muted everyone so I could read a book to them, but I wouldn’t have changed a thing.

Today was the third school day we’ve been apart, but it feels like forever.


Thanks for wondering and wandering a bit with me today. Many thanks to the crew at Two Writing Teachers, and the extended SOL community, for giving us the time, space, and encouragement to live the writerly life here every Tuesday throughout the year and daily during the month of March.

  1. I wondered where you were during Jen’s pop up session today! You were missed! This is great that you have a parent willing to do this. I had wondered about doing that periodically with my kiddos. This sounds fun. See you tomorrow evening!


  2. I love that a parent took the lead on this! Just watched Jen Serravallo and LivBit do a FB Live last night on the power of Zoom and Flipgrid to keep community alive during these uncertain times. Think the mute button is key! Glad you could employ!


  3. What a wonderful idea! I have been toying with the idea of a virtual playdate between my son and some of his friends, but I can explore this for his entire small 4th grade class too (14 kids!). I am in the fortunate position of not having to do distance learning right now, so I may seize this idea and run with it.
