When students arrive at the beginning of the day, they are to immediately write our plans for the day in their planners. So far, we haven't done very much outside of our rules and expectations. Still, we have written those things on the appropriate pages of these books.
Our plans don't always go as planned, so those things students write in their agendas will always be subject to changes as we roll along.
Parents need to understand that I will not be sending these home every day. In fact, student planners are not supposed to leave our classroom. I use other methods to keep in touch with parents without overwhelming them with the annoying little duty of signing every night, and without taking valuable class or preparation time to check for said signature.
Please expect to hear from me about Class Messenger, ClassDojo, BiblioNasium, and Seesaw. The latter of these are up to parents, though. While I can sign parents up for Class Messenger, parents must sign up for themselves on the other three of these platforms. I will send information soon.
Don't worry! I won't flood you with texts and emails from all of these sources. I will use them to let you know when our website has an especially interesting update. I will use them to let you know about homework and book order due dates, etc.
Parents, these tech platforms are your ticket into our classroom.
ClassDojo sends a report to your person, every Friday, to let you know about your son/daughter's behavior awards and about the things s/he must work on to improve. (Please note that I have already sent you a unique code to connect to ClassDojo.)
BiblioNasium lets parents know what kids are reading. Instead of a paper log, students keep this information electronically.
Seesaw is the way Hoggatteers will keep electronic portfolios. When parents sign up, they get a view of their child's work and progress - something I really missed with last year's class.
please go immediately to sign up for your desired communication tools
(hopefully, that's all of them!).
