Musical Parent Spot

We have so many talented parents at KRCS! Before we ate a fun guitar snack created by Davis’ mom, Davis’ dad shared his musical gifts with us.

Ben’s dad also shared his musical gifts with the children a couple of weeks ago. Unfortunately, it was the Friday I was sick and I wasn’t there to take any pictures. The children are still talking about the double neck guitar!

We look forward to using our actiVotes. ActiVotes are part of a fun learner response system used for assessment and polls on the activboard. Everyone has the opportunity to participate simultaneously, and the teacher can choose how the results are displayed. Children have instant feedback and teachers can track progress and download the data into a spreadsheet. When we watch a Brain Pop video, there is always a quiz following the video to test our recall and understanding of the information that was presented. What a great tool to engage everyone in the learning process!
A side note:  Brain Pop Jr. is available as an app on your iPad.
