      "we're going to talk to a really nice teacher on zoom. do you want to have some of your artwork nearby [or a favorite book or toy or whatever] to show her?" we then don't usually affirmatively nudge him to do that during the chat itself, but giving him some ideas for conversation starters about things he liked helped a lot.

    My fourth grader's schedule is more complicated that a CEOs. He has five different Zoom meetings between 8:30 and 12:30, plus different assignments to complete in between them. And the teachers still can't really figure out how to use the system so they're late starting the meeting, so then he gets no break in between each Zoom meeting. Then the teacher starts calling out kids on the Zoom meeting for not sitting up straight and paying direct attention after being lectured at for three and a half hours.
