Students are fostering their love for learning this year. We would love to encourage all students to be comfortable, care for one another, communicate with family, and foster a love for learning. in their own skin and adapt the way they learn by moving toward flexible seating.
Our school is very unique in that we have no walls.
This is an incredibly unique learning environment. We can build a closeness with colleagues and peers that not many schools can have when they are isolated within the classroom walls.
My students live in a suburban setting, however, we have a very high special education and ELL population. It is not an affluent area and many families have dual income, therefore parents are working late. Many do not have access to technology.
The world we live in today presents many challenges. Today, it is more and more important to be in communication with the families of our students. Technology offers us a gift in cutting down time, serving as a motivation for many, and has provided an easier and effective way to be in touch with families.
Students often come home tired or may not see family members until late at night.
Recapping what is goes on the classroom can be almost difficult if not an effort. We know today it takes a village to raise the child. As the teacher, I am searching for an effective, time efficient way to share what happens between our walls.
I have decided to pilot an app titled, Get Homeroom, for my class. I am the administrator and I can control who we allow into the class site. Parents are invited into a safe place to post pictures of student happenings, reminders, study guides, etc. I would like iPads for the classroom to document and take photos. I plan to use the iPads for the classroom app, where I as well as students can share information with parents. Parents can download the app on their phone and be in touch with the daily happenings that go on in our 3rd-grade classroom.
