Class Dojo

Class Dojo allows me as a teacher to monitor student behavior throughout the day, during which at any point parents can log on to view their child's daily progress as well. It is also a great way for teachers to send class updates, reminders, and photos to the parents. I will be sending out various reminders on Class Dojo about upcoming lab dates, needed school supplies specifically for science, and more. Lastly, it provides me a direct, reliable means of communicating with parents and a place where they can message me about any concerns as well.

Quest Garden

These creative webquests would help me to create project-based learning in the classroom with my students. They include ongoing learning and assessments to help me as a teacher to keep track of individual student progress and mastery of concepts. I can also search for free pre-made webquests that fit the science material I am teaching to my 3rd graders.

Brain Pop Jr.

Brain Pop Jr. is a highly-functional educational tool for students, parents and teachers alike, as it offers curriculum-based learning strategies in-line with state educational standards. I will assign students to complete so many activities and quizzes for homework during the week. Each student will have a code so I will be able to track their progress. This will help my students to reinforce the science material in a fun and interactive way.
