Field Days, Talent Shows, and Class Picnics - Oh My! or How to Learn and Have Fun During the Last Weeks of School, Part 2

Written by // Emily Rozmus Wednesday, 24 May 2017

Friday's post on how to keep calm, cool, and collected during the last days of school provided an example of how to implement Camp INFOhio into your classroom during the last weeks before summer break. The goal is to keep kids engaged, learning, and interested. Another resource available at no cost from INFOhio is IWonder. This student site is a collection of websites chosen by educators. The sites are categorized by asking students questions such as "Do You Want to Learn More About Technology?" and "Do You Want Help with a Project?" Students can browse to find a topic that interests them, and drill down to find specific websites where they can learn, play, and explore. Of course, one way to achieve part of the goal set is to allow the students to do just that—browse to learn, play, and explore. Without a plan of action, however, students may not be as engaged. And without engagement, well, we all know what happens in a classroom where students are not actively invested and interested!

Field Days, Talent Shows, and Class Picnics - Oh My! or How to Learn and Have Fun During the Last Weeks of School

Written by // Emily Rozmus Friday, 19 May 2017

The classroom is packed up, with bare walls and stacked-up textbooks. Students are eager to help clean and sort, preparing for the end of the school year. The teacher frantically finds activities to keep the class busy, and when all else fails, turns to a movie, the lights turned off, the room cooler without a fluorescent glare. Tomorrow is Field Day, and the temperature is sure to be high. The next day is the class picnic, and after that, the doors close for good on this school year. 

Summer Reading—Teacher Style

Written by // Emily Rozmus Monday, 10 April 2017

It's amazing to think that it is April, and for many Ohio teachers, there are only 6-8 weeks left of this school year. Most can still remember the smell of the new crayons or the smiling faces of new students. Many will wonder where the school year has gone. Most will cheer and dream of peace, sleeping in, and sunshine. And because it is April, many educators will also begin to wonder what they can do to further their efficacy, effort, and influence in the classroom for the next school year. They will think back about this year, and ask, "How can I engage my students more?" What approach might work better for teaching this concept?" "Should I consider restructuring my reading program?" That's right—the end of the school year often means it's time for some serious professional development. "Summer is the perfect time to recharge," according this to this article from Educational Leadership about ways that being a better student will lead to being a better teacher. Often districts will have prescribed summer PD, but that doesn't mean there aren't easy options for developing your own PD plan—one that will answer your personal questions and build a better educator based on your needs and expectations. INFOhio can help with that. We like to think of it as Summer Reading—Teacher Style. It's free and all you need is time, some mindfulness, and a device with an Internet connection.

Classical Music Month

Written by // Erica Clay Tuesday, 20 September 2016

In 1994 President Clinton signed a proclamation that September would be Classical Music Month. In 1995 Classical Music Month was again observed in September. However, in 1996 Classical Music Month was not observed in September as it was moved to April. Whenever you choose to celebrate the important role music plays in culture and history, INFOhio has excellent resources you can use for students in grades PreK-12.
