Keeping Up With Parent Communication Using ClassTag


Do you ever struggle to communicate with your students' parents?  I know I definitely have!  It is so important that we make it a priority to communicate with parents positively and frequently BEFORE a major problem happens.  But, the big question - how do we do that without it being a major hassle when our plates are already overflowing?

Enter ClassTag!  This awesome parent communication app is completely FREE to use, is super easy to set up, translates in over 50 languages, delivers messages to parents via their personal preference (sms, email, or paper), and allows teachers to communicate about school supplies, back to school info, volunteering, activities, assemblies, and more!



This is a sponsored post.  All opinions are my own.

Some Benefits I LOVE:

1. Office Hours

You can set up office hours in ClassTag.  You get to specify the hours that you will be available to respond to your messages.  Parents can still send messages whenever it's convenient for them, but, you will only get push notifications during your office hours.  This is so important when you are trying to juggle the work/home life balance!

2.  Rewards



Activities on the app earn you points that can be redeemed for rewards for your classroom.

3. Class Supply Lists



You can create supply lists for your families to reference.  The best part is that they have made it super easy with ready created supply lists.  Just delete or add anything that you need included. You can even update this list throughout the year.  You know, like in January when everything needs to be replaced!


4. Communicate With One or All Parents

Using the app, you can choose to communicate with an individual parent (for a behavior issue or to give a compliment) or for the whole class (for upcoming events or announcements).


5. Parent Teacher Conferences

Scheduling parent teacher conferences is a breeze with the app!  You can schedule the times that you are available, and parents can sign-up for available times right on the app!

6. Even More Rewards!

I already mentioned that teachers can earn rewards for their classroom just by communicating with parents, but... ClassTag has added another opportunity for teachers to gain resources they need in their classroom!  They have joined the #clearthelists movement started by teacher, Courtney Jones. 

ClassTag is going to clear the list of one lucky teacher every day for the entire school year!  You can find out how to take part here.

If you haven't signed up for ClassTag - click here to get signed up for FREE right now!

I would love to hear all the ways that you use ClassTag to communicate with parents!  Please share in the comments below!

5 Fun Back To School Games

I love using games to learn more about my students at the beginning of the school year.  The best part is that I use many of these same games and strategies throughout the year for learning and practicing content, so it helps me to introduce them in an easy and non-threatening way!


1. Getting to Know You Heads Together

Place students into small groups of 4-5.  Have students take turns answering questions about themselves.  Use a timer to give them 30 - 45 seconds to respond.  Then have each of the groups share out their answers.  You may ask them to pick one or share the one that was most common in their group.

After the first round (which should only have one question to enable them to get started comfortably), help them learn how to keep track of time and to listen to what their classmates have said.  Repeat other rounds over the next few days, or have students share the same things with different peers.  Here are some sample questions:
  • What is a movie or a book you have seen or read lately that you really liked? Why?
  • What two words describe you? Why?
  • If you became the principal, what is one thing you would change about this school if you could?
  • If you had could have any superpower, what would you choose?



2. Stand Up If It Is True For You

Many times students are embarrassed to participate in classroom activities because they think that no one else thinks like they do.  This is a fun way to help them see how much they have in common with their classmates.

Read one question at a time, and have the students stand up if the statement or question is true for them.  You can enhance this activity by having students meet with the people who stood up for a certain question or statement to share their answers in more detail.  Here are some sample questions:

Stand up if you:

• Were born inside/outside the United States .
• Were born in this state.
• Have a sibling.
• Play a sport.
• Have rode a horse.
• Have ever broken a bone or needed stitches.
 Have a blue toothbrush.



3. Find Someone In The Class Who

Give students a list of descriptions (for example: who went to visit a relative during summer vacation or who has no brothers or sisters) and have students try to find a student who fits that description.

Students will walk around the room trying to find a student who fits that description.  When they find one, that student should write their name on the paper. The student will then move on to another student with the hope that that person will meet one of the other characteristics on their list.  The goal is to meet and talk to as many people as possible withing the time limit in order to put one name by each of the characteristics.  I usually give students about 10 minutes to complete this activity.





4. Two Truths and a Lie

Ask students to write down three statements about themselves, two that are truthful and one that is a lie.  The rest of the class takes turns trying to decide which one is a lie.  You could also do this as a small group activity.





5. Who's In My Circles?

This is an activity that allows students to know their classmates better by having each one add their names to others' topic "circles" of loves, likes, and dislikes.



Have students draw three circles like the picture above.  They can add the one thing that they love, that they like, and that they dislike.  Topics can include things like food, hobbies, sports, or books or movies they have read or seen.

The other students walk around adding their names to the circles section that they agree with.

I use pre-made circles placed in sheet protectors because I use this activity throughout the year.

You can find all of these games and a few more in my Back to School Collaboration Activities here.

Mathfacts made fun!

Motivate your students to learn their math facts with Kicking It! Math – A program for increasing math facts fluency 


Want to get your students excited about learning their multiplication facts? Try this fun karate/martial arts incentive program with your class! I’ve been using this program with my students and have found it to be a very successful and motivating way for my students to learn/memorize their multiplication facts. It only takes about 5-10 minutes a day to incorporate in your math block and your students will be begging to take timed tests each day to pass to the next level and earn their black belt in multiplication!

The program works with brain research and introduces only a few new facts each day. It engages both written and oral practice at school and at home. As students pass levels, they earn new colored “belts” on their way towards earning a black belt.



Daily Math Review Spiral MathReview

In what ways are you helping students to retain math concepts and skills they have been previously taught?

What additional opportunities for instruction are you providing your struggling learners?

I have been using Daily Math Review in my classroom for the past five years, and I have to say that it has had the biggest impact on my math instruction by far!

This resource includes 36 weeks of daily math review for fourth graders. Included in each week are 5 problems for each day Monday - Thursday with a weekly quiz that includes 2 of each problem types for a total of 10 problems.

In addition to the already prepared math review pages, I have also included a fully editable version of the pages in PowerPoint so that you can customize to meet your students' needs.


Now for the Giveaway!!!!
