Hey everyone and thanks for stopping by my page! Here you will get a glimpse of what my 21st century classroom may look like in the future! To start off, here is a video about my teaching belief: I believe that teaching, as a two-way street, is about more than just book knowledge; more importantly it's about life lessons.
Check out my reflection post to see how I felt while making this movie!
Lakeshore Learning which allows you to design your classroom and then proceed to order all of your items based on your design!
Routines and Rituals:
Glogster. This is a cool way to make poster boards creative and accessible! I would also like to see some kind of cultural diversity routine in my classroom. My idea is that maybe every month, we will pick a country or culture to focus on. These cultures can preferably come from one of the diverse cultures in my classroom. While studying each individual culture, my classroom could collaborate with the families to expand their knowledge. This would promote collaboration and communication on a very simple level for my preschoolers. I also found this website called Culture For Kids that provides many great activities to use when teaching children about multi-diversity!
SMART Board and would be interactive. My students would take turns coming up and choosing the correct answer to a question after a brief lesson.
My Technology Integration:
Photo Bucket to share pictures of my students work!
Celly. Celly is a cool tool that I can use to send notifications to parents. My goal will be to send parents one notification a week to let them know the plans!
Teacher Tube is a great place to collaborate with other educators! It is a video resource with strictly educational videos. Videos include tutorials, lesson plans, and content appropriate for the classroom! I will also use Twitter to collaborate with fellow educators and experts! I will do this by following their Twitters and communicating with them.
