The past week has been a blur – all the projects that I have been attempting have a home and a framework!
It is amazing to me how rearranging them into new categories can bring out new ideas, and those ideas bring on more ideas.
Tonight I want to kick around even more categories and see what is generated from these ideas.
I am already working with these categories:
Ideas to kick around:
Skill Building Sprints
Single Word Prompts:
What are all the ways we can share what happens in a classroom?
Traditional Progress Reports: Teachers can provide regular reports to parents and guardians about a student’s progress in the class.
Parent-Teacher Conferences: Parents can meet with teachers to discuss their child’s academic performance, behavior, and other concerns.
Class Newsletters: Teachers can create a regular newsletter that provides updates on class activities, assignments, and student achievements.
Student-Led Conferences: Students can lead conferences with their parents and teachers to discuss their progress and set academic goals.
Online Learning Platforms: Teachers can use online platforms to share resources, provide feedback, and assess student progress.
Social Media: Teachers can use social media platforms to share classroom updates, photos, and videos with parents and the wider community.
Student Portfolios: Students can create portfolios of their work to share with their parents and teachers.
Parent Volunteer Programs: Parents can volunteer in the classroom to see firsthand what their child is learning and how they are doing.
Open House Events: Schools can organize open house events where parents can visit the classroom and meet with the teacher.
Classroom Websites: Teachers can create websites that include class schedules, assignments, and resources for parents and students.
Parent Communication Apps: Teachers can use communication apps to share real-time updates with parents about their child’s progress and behavior.
Student Showcase Events: Schools can organize showcase events where students can display their work and share what they have learned with parents and the community.
There is a lot to chew on here. So much potential.
