Our principal requires us to send home a weekly newsletter and since I have a problem, I had to make a cute newsletter for myself last year. I just decided that I was going to tweak it a little to fit my new classroom. I have to make BW copies, so it can't be too fancy. Oh well.
I am a big fan of QR codes. We will be using them for scavenger hunts during the year since we have ipods. Most of our parents have smart phones, so I will have QR codes for different things whenever parents are coming to the room.
I also started using Remind 101 last year. It is a great service that lets you send out text messages through your computer to a group of people. It is great for reminders, because it is a one way conversation. They can't reply. It is just another way to make sure they get the information.
The second thing I wanted to share with you is an article that was written a few years ago. I was led to it through an online class I took this summer. Take a minutes to read and imagine.
I want to work at that school! Doesn't that sound awesome?!
Happy Monday! They will only be happy for a few more weeks.
