Preschool Children: Know Their Needs and Characteristics

Preschoolers are curious about everything that they see and hear. This is a great time for caregivers, both parents and teachers, to mold the children’s minds and encourage them to use their creativity and imagination. This is also an important time for adults to teach social skills to help them adapt to a new environment filled with other kids. The world is widening for preschool kids and it is important for parents and teachers…

Shared Teacher Technology Tools

I've posted two links for helping teacher tech novices in the classroom. I'm just getting started and would love more ideas. Any suggestions for other blogs to learn?

Parent Volunteer

Thinking about having parent volunteers? Check out this form, which also includes items parents can do from home if they are not able to come in to the classroom during the day.  Make all your parents feel like they are a part of your classroom with activities they can do at home or in school.

I usually hand these out at Back to School night so that it goes directly to the parents. If a parent cannot make it then, I'll send home with the students and also will upload it to my…

Fun Ways to Celebrate Bonza Bottler Day

Bonza Bottler Day is celebrated every month on the day when the number of the month matches the number of the day (i.e. January 1, March 3, June 5 and so on).

The idea to celebrate this occurrence came from the mind of Elaine Fremont who established the first Bonza Bottler Day in 1985. Elaine Fremont…

When should kids start learning about online safety?

Teaching kids about the web is no longer confined to the classroom.   With all our gadgets enabled with web access, it’s no wonder kids can go online anytime, anywhere.  I see parents use these mobile devices synonymously as pacifiers.  Parents may have a specific site for the kids, however, most of the time the kids get to choose what and where they want to go.

With online access being so easy, when should you start teaching kids about online…

8 Rules for education

This is my perspective on how we need to educate children for their futures not our pasts. It is a personal view based on my experiences in education and feedback from the European projects I have been involved in.

They are not in any particular order. Of course, most aspects I list cannot be viewed as individual facets but affect each other and often duplicate.

Really interested in your comments on these thoughts, do I go far enough, what else would you include?  I purposely…

Communications in Higher Ed Administration

In my work in financial aid, I am currently looking at how to improve communications with students. This includes utilizing the software we already have in the ways intended and thinking creatively about how to reach students and making sure they see the information at least once. Technology will be very helpful moving forward in this endeavor.

So, I ask you, how are ways you would like to be reached online? What are ways you would not like to be reached? What is the most creative way…

The OIG Website as a Resource

I teach healthcare compliance to graduate students who aim to one day be compliance officer. Much of my curriculum comes from the Office of Inspector General. The OIG has developed some excellent free educational resources for providers, staff and patients. These resources help providers understand healthcare fraud, abuse and waste as well as the consequences of wrong doing. The resources are continually updated and very useful for training purposes. These are free resources that compliance…

According to the history of the internet, it was just starting when I finished college in 1997. I have moved on through MySpace to Facebook to LinkedIn. However, I started a journey towards teaching and now as I continue my coursework-- I am amazed at the volume of computer applications available. I am trying to understand which ones would I benefit from in my normal day to day.

Google Apps Blog

When I first saw the assignment on Google Apps training, I didn’t realize how little I actually knew about Google.  There are so many different ways to incorporate Google into a classroom.  I also didn’t realize that there was a whole section on Apps for Education and how certain apps could be used.  For example, I use Google Calendar for my everyday personal calendars, however, I do not use it for school.  I think that if I used it for school as well, it would keep me that much more…

Experiencing Free/Open Source Courses

The course that I chose to take was on geology.  It is a self-paced, interactive course with a lot of great information about the different types of rocks. This is a good course for students that need a visual learning experience.  There are videos, interactive activities, and actual pictures of the different types of rocks: sedimentary, igneous, and metamorphic. It is not only informational, but it is also extremely kid-friendly.  There are objectives, instructions for use, and ideas for…

Marzano & Bloom

When I started on my teaching journey almost ten years ago in college, we did a lot of work with Bloom’s Taxonomy.  There was a lot of focus on using the levels of thinking skills in lesson planning and developing activities.  The first school I starting teaching at, the main focus of the school was using the Bloom’s verb in our objectives.   Bloom’s has been the core of my teaching for the majority of my career so far.  Not until recently has Marzano become a forerunner in my teaching…
