#GridTip with Jornea Erwin: Winter Break Flipgrid Fun

The following post is written by Flipgrid Head of Educator Innovation Jornea Erwin. In this series Jornea will share a unique #GridTip to help you make the most of your Flipgrid subscription!


Winter is coming, snow is here, although school's almost out for break, students sometime lack cheer. Often time, over winter break, students are sent home with packets to complete. The first question when they return is  โ€œWhat did you do over winter break?โ€. Let's change it up and engage our students in fun and meaningful experiences with their families while staying connected with Flipgrid! 

Step 1: Create your Winter Break Grid
Did you know you can customize your Grid banner?

Step 2: Add Topics
Here are 10 suggested topics for the winter break from the Flipgrid Discovery Library - each one is linked so you can easily add it to your grid!
