A little over a week ago, we had a Professional Development session on Writing in Math that was really useful and meaningful!!! (Hopefully, I'll share some of it with you later...with pics!) One of the tools that the presenter used to facilitate the meeting was called Today's Meet. Have y'all heard of it? It's basically like an online "room" where people who know the specific URL can chat. Well, I don't know about y'all but while I use technology daily in my classroom, I definitely can stand to be more interactive with the use of techno. So I thought that this Today's Meet site would be a great way to interact with my kiddos and for them to engage one another.
Our standard for literacy this week happens to be RI.3.1-Ask and answer questions (referring explicitly to the text as the basis for the answers) so I thought it would be perfect to have the kids generate and submit questions to our Today's Meet "room" about the Declaration of Independence text we're reading this week. (The kiddos can answer others' questions too if they want.) For privacy purposes I have kept off the student names and the name of our "room" but here's a little screenshot of how it looks.
If you are interested in using this tool, it is so simple to set up a "room."
So to have encourage you to check out this super easy tool, I created a "room" at www.todaysmeet.com/onehappyteacher. I'd love to hear how you could use Today's Meet in your classroom! See you there!
