In order to carry out my action plan for incorporating parents in what we are doing in the classroom I have created a classroom website. This website will give parents the information they might find useful in helping their students in my class. There are many things on the website including; useful websites for students to practice skill work, weekly assignments, curriculum goals, and a link to our classroom blog. In order to carry out this plan I consulted with colleagues about the information I should include on my website. I also needed a computer in order to do this.
The other goal that I have is to participate in ongoing professional development opportunities. I will need to collaborate with other teachers as well as my principal to find the best options for me. I will then seek out these opportunities and participate as needed. My hope is that the professional development opportunities will be focused on technology and how to integrate it in the classroom. I have a Promethean Board, so I am always up for learning how to better use it in the classroom. Students really enjoy having an interactive board to learn the skills, and I want to make sure that I stay as up to date with the new things that you can do with the Promethean Board.
I hope that through these steps I am getting closer to meeting my goals.
