I have taken on a new adventure in my life! I’m new to the world of blogging, so here goes my first post! I want to share ideas on how to use meaningful technology in the classroom. This year our school district is implementing full online reading and math programs/curriculum to be used with fidelity through out the district! I personally love to use technology in my classroom. I use it in meaningful ways, where my students are actually engaged, learning, and not just playing games on the computers, iPads, iPods, or tablets. I selectively choose online activities and apps, that will ensure their learning and not just keep them busy. Technology use is one of my strengths in the classroom. To most teachers being crafty and creative comes natural, but for me, I have to ponder, think, look, and get inspiration from sites like Pinterest! But not for technology use; with technology I can create lessons on the smart board as fast as crafty teachers can come up with crafty ideas or activities. I can reboot an iPad or computer or tablet faster than finding those hot glue sticks & turning on a hot glue gun–reason number #1 why I follow all those crafty teachers on Facebook, Pinterest, and now blogs! My intentions with this blog are to share with teachers and parents how to implement meaningful technology for the classroom and home schooler. Hope you join in and follow me to learn a couple of iPad tricks to keep kids on the apps you want them to use.
Let’s talk #anchorcharts As a #duallanguageteacher any and all anchor charts must serve a purpose in the classroom! ⚓️Anchor charts are one of the many tools students use to make connections and transfer their learning and skills into other content areas and especially the activity or task that is aligned to your standard. #TeacherTips•𝙺𝚗𝚘𝚠 𝚢𝚘𝚞𝚛 𝚜𝚝𝚊𝚍𝚊𝚛𝚍𝚜 𝚒𝚗 𝚘𝚛𝚍𝚎𝚛 𝚝𝚘 𝚍𝚎𝚜𝚒𝚐𝚗 & 𝚒𝚖𝚙𝚕𝚎𝚖𝚎𝚗𝚝 𝚢𝚘𝚞𝚛 𝚕𝚎𝚜𝚜𝚘𝚗.•𝙺𝚗𝚘𝚠 𝚢𝚘𝚞𝚛 𝚌𝚘𝚗𝚝𝚎𝚗𝚝 𝚊𝚗𝚍 𝚜𝚝𝚞𝚍𝚎𝚗𝚝𝚜.•𝙲𝚛𝚎𝚊𝚝𝚎 𝚢𝚘𝚞𝚛 𝚊𝚗𝚌𝚑𝚘𝚛 𝚌𝚑𝚊𝚛𝚝 𝚋𝚢 𝙿𝚛𝚎-𝚆𝚛𝚒𝚝𝚒𝚗𝚐 𝚘𝚗𝚕𝚢 𝙷𝚎𝚊𝚍𝚒𝚗𝚐𝚜/𝚜𝚞𝚋-𝚑𝚎𝚊𝚍𝚒𝚗𝚐𝚜 𝚊𝚗𝚍 𝚝𝚑𝚎 𝚛𝚎𝚜𝚝 𝚠𝚒𝚝𝚑 𝚢𝚘𝚞𝚛 𝚜𝚝𝚞𝚍𝚎𝚗𝚝𝚜.•𝚃𝚑𝚎𝚗, 𝚝𝚑𝚎𝚢 𝚠𝚒𝚕𝚕 𝚋𝚎 𝚊𝚋𝚕𝚎 𝚝𝚘 𝚛𝚎𝚏𝚎𝚛𝚎𝚗𝚌𝚎 𝚒𝚝, 𝚔𝚗𝚘𝚠 𝚑𝚘𝚠 𝚝𝚘 𝚞𝚜𝚎 𝚒𝚝, 𝚊𝚗𝚍 𝚔𝚗𝚘𝚠 𝚒𝚝’𝚜 𝚗𝚘𝚝 𝚓𝚞𝚜𝚝 𝚜𝚘𝚖𝚎𝚝𝚑𝚒𝚗𝚐 𝚌𝚞𝚝𝚎 𝚑𝚊𝚗𝚐𝚒𝚗𝚐 𝚘𝚗 𝚝𝚑𝚎 𝚠𝚊𝚕𝚕.In this video I am teaching an Explicit Phonics Lesson on Diphthongs using Sound Wall & #heggertyphonemicawareness instructional strategies.#thescienceofreading 📹videographer @six33studios Thank you !
