Communication for Ms.Berg's Class
Welcome back to school! It's going to be an exciting year in First Grade! In an attempt to keep everyone informed, we will have three main forms of communication. If you have any questions, please feel free to send me an email, stop by my classroom or set up a conference.
I will be using a website called Edmodo to post all homework assignments, quizzes, and even some questions for student responses. This is a great backup for you, as parents, to be able to confirm their homework and monitor their progress along with me. This site is safe ans secure because I can control who can join our classroom group.
Throughout the year, our class will be using a website called Storybird to document all of their hard work. Each student will have an account and will create their own picture book. Each week I will give them a prompt in order to create their next page. Part of their homework each week will be to draw the picture that goes along with their page. By the end of the year, your child will have a story that is all their own and that can be cherished for years to come.
I will also be using another website called Fakebook primarily to keep in touch with the parents and guardians. This is set up very similar to Facebook so it should be easy for most people to use. I will post reminders about class events, pictures from fun activities that we do throughout the day and allow you all to communicate as well. This is a private website so you can only see the the pictures that I post if I share the link with you. Hopefully, this will make it feel like you are apart of our classroom even though you can't be there everyday!
Here's to a great year!
