Back to School 2020
There’s nothing quite like the fresh new school year. The clean desks, the organized classroom library and the word wall that is ready to build out with students of all the incredible names, vocabulary, and phonics words we learn. together.
This year with hybrid and remote learning, how do we adapt the practice of co-constructing a word wall for our k-2 learners?
With all of the tech tools there are to learn, and new ones popping up every day it seems, we’d implore you to find just a few and get to know them well. The old adage is true:
Less is more
We have found PADLET is an easy-to-use tech tool that gives students choice, voice and allows for collaboration. We have used it to share resources with families, to allow students to discuss about books during book clubs and today we will show you how you can use it to create a digital word wall for your students.
It’s easy! Want to learn? Watch the short video below for a step by step tutorial.
How simple is that?
Remember again. It’s not about the tool. It’s about learning the tool supports. Words are powerful and the words we celebrate matter. By creating a word wall we can model for students the richness of literacy and language and show them their names, their identities matter.
With this short tech tip, and many others we are here to help you as you create experiences to connect and care for your students this year.
