Fractions Presentation & Worksheet

Parents and Students: Here is the presentation I did in class today over fractions. If students are having trouble with the worksheet that I assigned, I encourage them to look at this presentation because it will help them remember what I said in class. Also, here is the worksheet that was assigned in case students lost theirs or were absent.

Halloween Party

As you all know, Halloween is next Wednesday so I thought it would be fun to have a Halloween Party. Students, feel free to dress up but I ask that you not wear your costume to school seeing as how we will still have class for the majority of the day. The party will begin at 2:00 p.m. I will provide *spooky* snacks and we will play games. Parents are encouraged to come and join in on all the fun. Hope to see you there!

Parent notice

Dear Parent,

                Your child has been learning to play his/her instrument very well. I believe your child is ready to go to the next level, and for that reason, he/she really needs to practice at home to master the instrument. In order for this to happen we will need you to agree to be responsible for any damage or loss of the instrument. I will be sending this agreement letter with your child on the next class day. Parents, this is an opportunity for your child to master…

Not convinced

Being new to Classroom 2.0, I'm not convinced of the practicality or ease of use of this tool. It's got too much going in it. All the links on the top, the header I can't control. The links on the sides, I can't tell what is mine and what is Classroom 2.0's. I see I can invite colleagues, but I don't see an immediate easy way to add people who are already on classroom 2.0. These are a lot of the same reasons I don't care for facebook much, though it seems like facebook is a slightly less…

Semana 8 en Maxwel

Porque el festival del Halloween está viniendo, los estudiantes en la clase de Sra. Guimarais están muy emocionantes. Todos me dijeron como van a vestirse para el festival. En clase hoy, como todos los días en Maxwell, los niños hicieron sus grupos de leer cuando llegué. Duespues de cumplir sus actividades de leer, hicieron el calendario. Algo que no he mencionado sobre el calendario es que incluye el tiempo. Un…

Social Networking Tools

I'm happy to be a part of classroom 2.0. Overall Ning is a great social networking tool for teachers, students, and administrators.  When I was the director of admissions at an online college I used ning frequently to connect with students who had just enrolled at the college.  I am currently a graduate student at Western Oregon University Studying Education: Information Technology.

I have used both Facebook and Ning to connect with students, and both have their advantages and…

Main Idea Chart

When we have finished reading a story, we need to be able to know the details listed and the main idea of the story, or what the story is mainly about. One way to help us understand is by making a Main Idea chart. This is what a Main Idea Chart looks like:

Is 'social' networking killing social skills?

During my time in school social media didn't come into my life until college.  I see myself with one foot in the social media generation and one foot out.  I find my relationship to social media very different from my player's who have grown up with social media.  

As an educator I find myself trying every and any way to most effectively communicate with my players.…

Maxwell Semana 8

¡Qué semana loca! Esta semana en Maxwell tenía que ver la clase completamente por mí mismo, porque el maestro, Señora Verax, tuvo que hablar con dos chicas en el salón. Estoy ayudando en una extra de tercera clase de inglés de grado dos veces cada semana y este miércoles, tuve que enseñarles. Estaba muy nervioso porque había estado solamente con esta clase durante tres semanas y el maestro parecía muy molesto. Estaba molesto porque había dos chicas luchando entre sí y era su responsabilidad…

Things to think about

"If kids come to us from strong, healthy functioning families, it makes our job easier. If they do not come to us from strong, healthy, functioning families, it makes our job more important."

Entrada 3

Para mi servicio pasado, solo trabajé para una cita, pero la cita duró por una hora y media. Esta cita fue muy importante, porque el paciente-un hombre llamada Isaias de México-ha sufrido un derrame cerebral y muchas especialistas estaban a la clínica de Samaritan’s touch para ayudar y examinar sus heridas.  Realmente, no tuve que hacer mucho, porque muchas de las personas quienes estaban allí pudieron hablar en español-la especialista, una ayudante del paciente, y su hermana. Para mí, esta…

My overall thought about technology use in the classroom

Students can use technology as a tool in communicating thoughts, ideas, and questions with their teachers and others.  When using technology as a tool to support communication with others they are playing an important role in the interchange of knowledge. Students actively make choices about how to generate, obtain, manipulate and display information.  Technology allows them to be actively thinking about information, therefore increasing their knowledge on any given topic.…

Teacher first day introduction

I want to use this blog for my future parents of my students. I would like to use this for them to get to know me and if they have questions they can ask through here. I would start by telling them a little introduction about myself. Then I would let them know a little bit about what this year will hold like some activities we would be doing or if any trips have already been made. I think this would be a great sight for the parents to be able to stay in contact with me if they need anything…
