Class Dojo is a classroom management tool that I absolutely love and I believe you will, too! I use Class Dojo on a daily basis in order to keep my students motivated and focused in the classroom. Students earn points throughout the day that they can later use to put towards various rewards and incentives. Reports are generated weekly from this site that allow you to see a breakdown of your child's behaviour in the classroom.
GoNoOdle helps us to get moving and stay active in the classroom while also giving our brains a little break throughout the day. These short bouts of activity have proven very successful on student performance and attention span throughout the rest of the day. These brain breaks are also great to use at home during homework time or just as a fun way to exercise with your child.
Storybird is such a beautiful tool that I love sharing with my students. This website allows you to create your very own book complete with professional and beautiful illustrations all with a few clicks of a mouse. We will use this website to create a story together as a class and I encourage you and your child to let your imaginations flow and see what you can come up with outside of the classroom!
Khan Academy is a personalized learning resource that offers practice exercises, instructional videos, and a personalized learning dashboard that empower learners to study at their own pace in and outside of the classroom. This website tackles math, science, computer programming, history, art history, economics, and more!
Remind App is a free, safe, and simple way for me to communicate with you without blowing up your phone with group messages or releasing your number to a large group of people. I use this app to send updates, questions, and more to any device—you can receive notifications by text message, on the app, on the web, or by email.
Google Drive is a wonderful, web-based storage system that allows me to share a multitude of documents with you without having to attach them to an email or print them out multiple times! Click on the icon to the left to access a private folder entitled "Ms. Smith's Classroom". Any document that is sent home or pertinent to you will be stored in this folder so that you can re-print if needed or access from any device at any time!
