Google Jamboard works fine, which has been my major online whiteboard app for years.
students can pull up your whiteboard and interact with it if you let them. Simplifies things bc you don't have to share screens with them, and if you have students in class and virtual at the same time, you just draw on your screen at school and it shows up everywhere without screen sharing.

The selection is history-making, marking the first time an Indigenous person has ever won the Caldecott Medal.
The medal is the award for the most distinguished American children’s picture book.
