    Unlocking the Wonders will allow me to use BreakoutEDU platform and create and use…[Read more]

    Our 6th graders will also be working on a new Paintsville Elementary brochure that can be…[Read more]

  • Updated theory of action with new reflections. This has been a great year. Thanks to KVEC, Cassandra and all Community Engagement Leaders for the awesome collaboration!
  • Reflection of Writing Night at Paintsville Elementary! It was a success!

    We held a community writing night on March 20th. Families participated in a interactive storytelling virtual conference. We had 6 families participate in the event. The Family Resource Center provided food and materials needed for the family event.
    Overall, families who…[Read more]

    • Sounds great Jessica. Even though your attendance wasn’t what you wanted it to be, you definitely made a difference in at least one students life and that is what matters. Reflections also help show us ways to do things better or differently the next time. Thanks for sharing!

  • Stand Up, Now What?
    Last year I was able to purchase standing dining room tables. Students had the option to stand or sit.
    This year, I was able to purchase clear table protectors that serve as a writing surface. I was able to purchase Kagan resources, dry erase posters, maps, morivational posters, etc that allow me to change with the lesson…[Read more]

  • Science on the Go — I have purchased a mobile science station. Without a true science lab in our school, I have been forced to make due in a regular classroom. This has made it possible to complete more labs that require water. I have also added to the station an instant tea pot which allows me to have hot water

    I have been able to allow K…[Read more]

    This is similar to an item I ordered for my grant. I ordered clear table protectors that students could use posters and write on. However, mine doesn’t clean as easy as true dry erase tables. Hope you are enjoying yours!

    I would love to see how you have implemented VR goggles. I have recently received some VR goggles and am actively looking for multiple ways to use them. I am a beginner with this type of technology.

  • I was privileged enough to receive two grants this year. One was for a mobile science station with a sink! This purchase arrived just before Thanksgiving! It has been very handy to have in a science classroom.

    A Challenge that was unforeseen (In my thinking) was the power source. It does have a grounded outlet that will stop power from going to…[Read more]

    Love the idea of a news broadcast. Are the students being involved in creating the broadcast or is there a team that is working on this?

  • jessicadavis posted a new activity comment 1 year ago

    Love the idea of community sharing during party days! The community/parents are already there. Use this to our benefit. We may be borrowing this idea!

    Try saving them to your desktop so they are easier to find. When you click the button to upload, make sure your file type is changed to all files and not just custom files.

    I am getting more excited about the event. Just got approved with the Principal a Spring Date. We will be having this event on March 20th from 5:00-6:30.

    You should be able to click the camera/music note and attach anything from your saved files.

    • I’ve save videos, pictures, and an mp3 file that I want to upload. It’s showing none of them.

    We are planning on having a Writing Community Night in the Spring. We had so many things happening in the Fall, that we decided to wait and have it after Christmas Break.

    To date, I have began contacting the community looking for specific involvement in the writing night. Attached is my flyer.

    The plan is to also push out on social media and…
