THANKS YOUTUBE!

I have used videos of different phonics and math skills regularly on my classroom blog for a couple of years now, but have not explored having my own channel to any degree.

This week, I had a few short videos of our class that I wanted to share on the blog and through a bit of trial and error in posting, I found that it was easiest to upload them onto my channel and then embed them into Blogger.  I like the ability to set the privacy of these videos to unlisted, as it isn’t my intention to share them beyond our classroom blog audience at this point.  However, I can definitely see a purpose at some point in posting videos for a wider community, in order to communicate and get involved in educational pursuits and communities.

I have always posted a ton of pictures on my blog but my goal at this point is to add more video as well. I feel like having my own channel will be a great way to do this and to keep my content organized.  I’m excited to continue to explore this tool.

MY LATEST SUCCESS – WHERE HAVE I BEEN?

If you’re not using remind.com to update/communicate with your parents, I’m here to remind you that it’s a great idea.  One way texting?  I’ve never seen fundraiser materials, school forms, and homework come back in a more timely manner!  I admit that I heard about it awhile back but didn’t fully listen because my first graders don’t use phones.  However, I’ve also noticed that six year olds are not reliable couriers.  This is solving a lot of problems for me!
