Today our children in the 21st century are into technology, aren’t they?! Many children would love to stay on their iPads and play “Minecraft” or check out fun videos rather than do any fun crafts or projects.
Think for a second of the possibilities of a personal video email…
I know as parents we are always looking for ways to help our children with how they develop in the early years. Well parents, how would you like FREE professional development to help you do that?
I LOVE this app to help build independence!
It is great for ASD kids, for parents at home, for centers, etc. The best part is…..it’s FREE!!
How many of you have asked your child what they did at school and they reply…”Nothing!” Every parent knows that the common “how was your day” question doesn’t elicit the responses that we want, but we keep trying it. Often times children are great at asking so many questions; but the better we can get as parents at asking children questions, the better our children’s response will be! So now when our kids get home from school, we don’t say: “How was your day?” Because they don’t know. Their day was lots of things.
In one of our past blogs, we featured Joey, a teacher in Sheridan County, Wyoming who created an anchor task that I have been using in my training sessions across the country. Well, recently a teacher from the same district sent me a link of videos highlighting a math parent night that they hosted in November.
With the Common Core shifting our teaching to a more in-depth focus on fewer topics, it’s creating quite a challenge for many people. Not only is it a new way of thinking for teachers delivering instruction, but it is also a new way of learning for parents, too.
As parents we want the best for our children, but sometimes when challenges arise we aren’t sure where to turn. We often don’t have the right resources to tap into, and at times we might just like a “coach” in life to help us! This website is great for parents with children from 3-20 years old. It is so easy to use!
The LAZ leveled library is an app you can download to your device for a library of leveled books that you can go to in an instant! It would be ideal for classroom use during Daily 5 or reader workshop, and for parents looking to provide extra reading support at home!
