Lights, Camera, FRACTION!
My students need a camcorder so that their parents can access my lessons via YouTube.
That's not how my teacher does it!
How many times have we heard this? Your child goes home, you try to help them with their assignment and they tell you you're doing it wrong. Or you look at their homework, and think, "I have no idea what they're asking them to do!"
I teach 3rd grade at a dual-immersion school.
Half of my class consists of native Spanish speakers and the other half native English speakers.
I teach math in Spanish. Teaching in Spanish is a challenge because there aren't as many Spanish resources as there are for English.
This year my school has switched to common core and the demand from parents for resources to help their children is in high demand, especially for Spanish!
I would like a camcorder so that I may record myself teaching. I can then post these videos on YouTube so that parents can see what I taught and how I taught it. Often I hear the parents from my classroom telling me that they "Googled" or "YouTubed" but fall short of finding what they need.
I'm hoping that with a camcorder I can bridge the gap between what's being taught at school and the parental struggles during homework time.
With practice I hope to add subtitles in English.
I want to help my students and their families in being successful with our transition to common core.
I want the parents to feel that they can access the resources they need to help, reteach, and support their children at home.
