three bitmoji rooms for November

November brings the usual Thanksgiving reading and activities, but I decided to celebrate with three different bitmoji rooms to spread out the theme goodness. This week is Polar Bear Week, so first a Polar Bear reading room! (http://bit.ly/bgsbpolar) There are even polar bear noises, which may be my favorite part of the room. I also made a room to celebrate CANDY because who doesn’t have buckets of the stuff the week after Halloween? And then there’s the Thanksgiving and friendship reading room (bit.ly/bgbsthanks). I always include both because some families don’t have big Thanksgiving celebrations.

Those back to school newsletters might arrive differently this year. When I started teaching we mailed out newsletters with meet the teacher information and supply requests.  This year teachers may send them inside our LMS along with those paper copies (still nice to hang on the fridge). I made a newsletter template with a bee theme because Honey Bee Day is in August! Click to make a copy. I think including a QR code with a video of you saying a quick hello would be awesome, too! Flipgrid would be a great choice for this because it could be a mini-introduction to that tool if you plan to use it more- or could even include a request to respond to the newsletter on a grid.

Stuck on getting started? Here are some ideas and resources for building a back to school newsletter. I used Euphorigenic from a font generator to make a couple of these font titles and google slides for the template along with the fun bee bitmojis available! Bee productive with those slides, y’all.
