Blab today with Kayla Delzer

Thank you so much for joining us this morning on blab for the Teacherblabshow. I am going to list the awesome resources that she shared with us this morning.

Click on her picture to check out her awesome blog!
1. Remind
Remind is a communication tool that helps teachers connect instantly with students and parents.  Send quick, simple messages to any device.  You can use Remind as a reminder to parents but you can also use it as a "Flipped Classroom."  Post activities that the students are doing.  You can also post comments like:  "Ask your child about what we did today" or "Ask your child about the story we read today."

Remind apps
Use apps that are more project based than skill based.
Her next recommended program was Ten Marks.
TenMarks Education, Inc. provides

 personalized online 

math practice and enrichment programs 

for first through

 twelfth graders using a structured 

approach of practice, 

on-demand hints, video lessons and real-

time results

Have students who write their letters backwards? Handwriting app that will change your classroom

I periscoped last night about an awesome handwriting app called: Writing Wizard. I downloaded it last year and it was FREE again yesterday (possibly today.) It is regularly $4.99. Even if you have to buy it, it is so worth it! Please excuse me dropping my iPad on the video. lol
