• Thanks to our grant we were able to crate four SumoBots to battle each other at our 2nd annual STEAM night. The winner went on to compete at state and made it to the sweet sixteen. The students were engaged in the engineering design process and learned advanced coding techniques all while creatively problem solving to be the best robot. Here is a…[Read more]

    One of our 4th grade teachers uses a “graffiti wall” to assess students’ knowledge of content such as identifying figurative language, text structure, and main idea. I have also utilized this strategy with Social Studies content. Use chart paper or the whiteboard as a space for students to respond to a topic or question. I have most often…[Read more]

    One of the resources we use to assess is a consensus map. I was introduced to this idea during a Kagan training. There are many ways to use the consensus map. My favorite is to use it during to assess understanding through writing. After being given a question, each student spends a few minutes answering on a post it or small piece of paper. After…

  • **Final Post** I would like to thank KVEC for allowing our school to introduce coding and robotics through the Innovation Grant. Our students were exposed to tech that they would have probably not ever used had it not been for this grant. It brought awareness to how coding and robotics are used in society and really sparked interest in future…[Read more]

    Kahn Academy is a great resource our Middle School teachers are very fond of given our participation in a grant utilizing the PSAT to measure progress. This provides an individualized path for students to progress through skills.

    One resource that teachers in my school utilize is the website Prodigy. The site has over 1200 math skills for grades 1 – 8. Students have avatars in a virtual world and compete against each other but must first correctly answer math related questions.

    In my paperless classroom I utilize Google Apps for Education every day. Google Classroom is our “home” where they receive and submit their work. Google Forms is great for assessments, especially now because they have a lock down browser enabled to prevent cheating. I am also a big fan of Google Drawings which allows students to get creative with…[Read more]

    I run a paperless classroom in all of my courses including Advanced Placement World History. I have found Fiveable and Get A Five have both been great for students to be able to learn concepts. They incorporate videos and assessments for students, which are instrumental in student success because our content ranges from the dawn of mankind to…[Read more]

  • A resource that I would like to start incorporating into my classroom is PearDeck. I had not heard of it until a training a couple weeks ago. It is a Google app that allows you to have interactive Google slide presentations and embedded assessments. Students are given a code to enroll and participate. It is to my understanding that other students…[Read more]

  • A resource that I use as well as several other teachers at my school is quizlet.com . This site allows you to create vocabulary “cards” for the topic of study. Then you provide students a link and they can use it to study as flashcards, write them, spell them, and/or do a practice test. You can also provide a given code with quizlet live and the…[Read more]

    One resource that has been extremely helpful to my classes this year (and one I had not explored yet) has been Google Classroom. With the on-demand writing test moved online, Google Classroom has allowed students to get in much needed typing practice and has made one-on-one work much simpler for myself. When I create a new assignment,…[Read more]

    Resource.
    I have been a big proponent of case studies throughout my teaching career, as it develops students’ understanding of content through their own research and active problem solving skills. The following link is for a data base of case studies related to the subject of science. These are great and students actually enjoy them.…[Read more]

  • We just finished our last episode of The Eagle News on Friday. I will post the link to that episode below. I am so pleased with the growth our students have shown this school year with this news program. My hope is that they will use the skills they have learned this year and use them to help them to be able to succeed in other areas of their…[Read more]

    Resource #2
    Elementary school stations or centers are important if used correctly. This resource has allowed my teachers to see real-life scenarios that help them make sound decisions on how to use data to determine activities. The book also have various activities that teachers can use in their classrooms for various levels.

    Resource #1
    My teachers have been using quizizz.com and they love this resource. It has quizzes that are already created by other educators as well as the option to create your own quiz. I also have been using this with my teachers in our weekly interactive agendas and they log in and answer their questions for me.

  • One of the issues in any project that requires large amounts of data is the possibility of incorrectly entering data, mainly by errors in transposing. The biggest benefit of the iPad Pro was having the ability to directly receive measurements from the Leica digital tape measure. In these shots Shelby and Dakota are transferring measurements…

    We, as a school and our literacy team in particular, have been looking for the best way to keep student writing folders with writing samples. In the past there have been those paper folders that follow the student along and materials are added each year. This year we have tried to develop electronic writing folders that can also follow the student…[Read more]
