Fun Ways to Spend Time with your Child at Home Using Technology
Your children are already using lots of technology in the classroom and all of us here at Ridge Road Elementary want you to become involved in our technology as well. I have provided information on tools I will be using in our classroom. Edmodo is a way we can keep in touch, Fakebook will be a way for your student to review at home what we do in class and Storybird is a way for you and your child to have some fun at home.
Please look at these tools and email me if you have any questions. We will be having a meeting on Friday, March 18, 2016 at 10:00, 12:00 and 4:00 for those parents that would like more information on our technology. Please join us in the library for lots of fun.
Fakebook: It allows teachers and students to create imaginary profile pages for study purposes. The page looks just like a Facebook page however has study materials for lessons. This would be a fun way for you to work at home with your child on activities. It will also help you keep up-to-date on what we are doing in the classroom.
It is an interactive social media website that will make it easier for me to stay in touch with you, the parents/guardians of my students. Here is how it works. Go to Edmodo. com. You will make an account and then I will give you a login code that will give you access to my classroom page. I will keep the site current as to resources or activities that could help your child with the course content. We also can communicate in real time using this social media site.
It is a site that helps students write stories. There is already art found at the site so you and your child can together write wonderful books together. Check it out at storybird.com
Mrs. Frizzle is our technology teacher and will explain all questions about the sites you may have.
I am your child's teacher, Mrs. Colwell. I love teaching your child. I look forward to partnering with you to help educate your child to help him have the best year ever.
