Together Tuesdays

Charity, volunteering and donating concept. Raised up human hand

Last spring, when the COVID-19 pandemic forced our learning community to physically distance, we launched a weekly campaign with the goal to reunite our facilitators and families and lift their spirits. Every week, a new Together Tuesday video featured photos of families, learners, and staff throughout iLEAD Schools — a reminder that we’re all in this together.

Now, as we begin a new school year with distance learning, Together Tuesdays will twice monthly make a comeback. We would love to see your contributions.

The first video of the 2020-21 school year will go live on September 15. To ensure your submissions are included, please click here to submit your photos. Photos received by the Friday before each Together Tuesday are eligible to be included.

If you have any questions, simply reply to stories@ileadschools.org.

Summer Countdown!

summer learning

Summer is almost here! Looking for some innovative ways to keep your learners engaged during the months ahead? One fabulous way to launch into summer is to create a summer activity chain. Kids love to make countdown chains as much as they love tearing off the next loop. Here are some ideas for summer learning activities that would keep your primary crew excited about learning throughout the warm days ahead!

Upper grade learners might enjoy creating a summer scrapbook or a video/slideshow with pictures, quotes, and journal entries about their favorite moments during summer break. Some families also enjoy listing family activities on slips of paper and placing them in a jar, pulling out a couple each day for activities to complete. Whatever your style, enjoy the journey!

Virtual Field Trips

We would like to introduce this website that offers you free virtual field trips by grade level. You can find everything from an M&M factory tour to live cams at the San Diego Zoo. Have fun exploring!

Storyboard That!

Storyboard That

Graphic novels have invited readers of all ages to view and unpack those witty visuals for centuries. What a classic way to engage your learner and invite them to create their own comic strip with personal connections.

Storyboard That offers a free platform for all learners to be creative and tell their own story with backgrounds and captions of your choice. We challenge you to check it out and build a tale of your own!
